The London airport has announced that it expects 13.7 million passengers to pass through its doors this month and next, with a total of 9.2 million of those passengers predicted to be families jetting off on summer holidays and leisure travellers looking forward to their annual sunshine getaway before the end of August.
While the numbers are great news for travel agents and airlines who had predicted a gloomy season in anticipation that economic worries would force people who would normally go abroad to stop at home, Heathrow meet and greet parking specialist Value Individual Parking are warning those planning to fly from any of Heathrow’s four terminals, that increased passenger numbers means increased car parking pain.
Pat McLintock, managing director from Value Individual Parking said, “Once inside the airport, Heathrow officials have set aside new childrens’ play areas and check in lanes, which is great for those travelling with youngsters when they actually reach the check in desk but, getting to the airport building can be a mission for those who drive to the airport and then try to find a parking space. Corralling bags and pushchairs on and off courtesy buses and struggling with trolleys in busier than ever car parks is the stuff of nightmares on what is supposed to be a relaxing day.”
To avoid the crowds (over 100,000 people are expected to catch a flight from Heathrow on Sunday alone) try a meet and greet Heathrow parking service instead. Value Individual Parking’s representative meets you at the terminal building, takes your car keys and parks your car in a designated space in the secure Value Individual Parking area. Driving right up to the terminal door means there’s no hopping on and off buses or trekking miles to get to the courtesy bus stop. Simply pull up, get out and walk to check in. Returning to the airport after a break is simply a case of repeating the service in reverse – Value Individual Parking return your car to the terminal building, meet you with the keys and wish you a safe onward journey.
