London Heathrow Queries Gatwick’s Ability to Add Long-Haul Links

Heathrow Airport Ltd., the owner of London’s biggest aviation hub, said that rival Gatwick airport lacks the connections to support long-haul services to emerging markets as the two vie for the right to add runways and flights.

Heathrow has submitted evidence to a government commission that’s assessing U.K. capacity requirements which challenges Gatwick’s expansion bid and lists 20 carriers that have scrapped long-haul routes there since 2008, it said in a statement today.
