Heathtrow Airport vermeldet 1,059 Mrd. GBP Verlust im ersten Halbjahr 2020

Heathrow Airport hat wie so viele Flughäfen mit einem starken Passagierrückgang. Die Passagierzahlen fielen in Q2 um 96% gegenüber dem Vorjahresquartal. Während die Einnahmen im ersten Halbjahr 2020 auf 712 Mio. GBP (1. Halbjahr 2019: 1,461 Mrd. GBP) beliefen, betrug der Verlust vor Steuern 1,059 Mrd. GBP (1. Halbjahr 2019: 7 Mio. GBP).

“Today’s results should serve as a clarion call for the Government – the UK needs a passenger testing regime and fast. Without it, Britain is just playing a game of quarantine roulette. As many of our customers have experienced, it’s difficult to plan a holiday that way, let alone run a business. Testing offers a way to safely open up travel and trade to some of the UK’s biggest markets which currently remain closed. Our European competitors are racing ahead with passenger testing, if the UK doesn’t act soon global Britain will be nothing more than a campaign slogan.” [Heathrow CEO John Holland-Kaye]
