Heathrow Airport, also known as London Heathrow, is a major international airport in London, United Kingdom. Heathrow is the second busiest airport in the world by international passenger traffic, as well as the busiest airport in Europe by passenger traffic, and the seventh busiest airport in the world by total passenger traffic. In 2018, it handled a record 80.1 million passengers, a 2.7% increase from 2017 as well as 477,604 aircraft movements, an increase of 1,821 from 2017.
In June 2019, I joined the project team working with Heathrow with the responsibility of leading the delivery of the services booking website for the large airport. The challenge was to create a seamless user experience on a complex system that offers car parking, lounges and fast track options, enhancing the costumers airport experience.
