Wed, 27 Oct, 2010
London's Heathrow Airport has named its top destinations for 2010.
New York and Dubai were revealed by the airport as favourites for passengers this year, as it predicted a busy half-term break.
Dublin, Amsterdam and Paris were also unveiled as popular destinations with travellers as the airport geared up for increased autumn break traffic.
Chief operating officer for Heathrow Airport Nick Cullen welcomed the rise in passenger numbers, stating that it reflects the airport's unique position as an international hub.
"We are able to offer exciting and diverse destinations like New York and Dubai amongst more than 180 cities," he said. "Our teams are looking forward to welcoming passengers across the weekend."
Heathrow Airport was recently recognised for its work in reducing the carbon footprint of its passengers.
The Airport Carbon Accreditation Scheme awarded the hub with a rating of Level 3 optimisation, the highest available rating for airports which do not offset their emissions.
