Visting Heathrow Airport

Together with other members of the House of Commons' Transport Select Committee, Kwasi visited Heathrow Airport. He met representatives from BAA and over the course of a good three hours, talked to staff, encountered some of the inner workings of the Airport and went to the top of the control tower to observe a remarkable panorama of Spelthorne, Windsor and most of the western side of London.

Kwasi later said: "The visit was very interesting and useful: we came across the sometimes tight and stressful conditions that staff confront, discussed the progress of Terminal 2's rebuild and learned more about some of the immediate challenges that a modern airport like Heathrow faces, with security, logistics and climate change.
