Technology and Innovation

As the UK’s only hub airport and cornerstone of the UK economy, we can play a significant role in leading decarbonisation across the aviation industry.

It is our goal to help aviation reach net-zero carbon emissions by 2050. Our Target Net Zero Plan outlines how  through smarter flight operations, and new aircraft and engine technology we can significantly decrease carbon emissions. Modernising our airspace and developing sustainable aviation fuels will also contribute to this decrease.

By working with partners and stakeholders and by investing in and implementing breakthrough technology, we can create a future where our business, our people, our communities, our country and our world can all thrive. Find out more in our Target Net Zero plan, published in February 2020.
