Unlike most airports, London's Heathrow is privately owned, so it's a great case study for how airports make money. Wendover Productions explains.
Soon, this airport will be making even more money. This summer, Heathrow got approval to expand:
In terms of passenger numbers, a third runway could increase capacity to 130 million, two-thirds more than the 78 million who passed through Heathrow last year.

“It will better connect the UK to the rest of world with an extra 16 million long-haul seats available by 2040.”
