Engineering at Heathrow is unlike engineering at any other organisation. The sheer scale and scope of what we do means that we’re very much a city within a city. Think 201,000 passengers arriving and departing each day (that’s around 73 million people a year). Four active terminals – the largest of which covers 353,020 square metres. And literally thousands of colleagues, all striving to achieve one thing: making every journey better.
