London Heathrow Airport is one of the busiest airports in the world. Millions of travelers each year pass its gates, either entering one of the most fascinating cities of the world, London, or to continue on their journey to some other place. For that reason alone, Heathrow is one of the most popular airports in the World. However, anyone who has been to one of its four terminals can attest one thing; it is also a quite special place. No tourist leaving the airport forgets it, just as you normally do with any other one. In this article I decided to try and explain, from my personal experience, what makes Heathrow so special?Heathrow airport is divided into four terminals. Terminal 1 caters to all domestic flights meaning most of the UK airline departs here, Terminal 2 caters to non UK carriers, Terminal 3 caters for long haul US flights and Terminal 4 caters to most of the British Airways long haul flights and some European services. Heathrow airport is the major airport in London where most connecting flights go through if you are travelling east side or west side of the world.
As a traveler, what I find special about Heathrow is their orderly, non-chaotic way of welcoming travelers all around the world. From the moment you get out of the plane you will be welcome by pleasant, helpful, formal good looking people with a business type atmosphere. It offers good food, moving walkways almost everywhere, and fast security lines. If you are a traveler and have travelled to different parts of the world and have come in and out of different airport you will know the difference that this airport has to offer. With its massive size, it offers fast and convenient transfers to traveler in between the terminals. I also find cleanliness of the said airport is remarkable considering that millions of people go in and out of the said airports. Checking in and out of this airport is a breeze because of how efficient their operation is in Heathrow airport.
The service and facilities of Heathrow are quite remarkable, with restaurants that offer diverse choices, shops and services for relaxation can be found in the said airport. Their lounges offer quite an experience as well where you can find peace and tranquility amidst the bustling and noisy airport.
With its worldwide connections and gateway to the world along with its efficient operation and vast services and facilities, Heathrow is a place that I don’t mind being stuck to
