Travel Insurance: 'New York a popular trip from Heathrow'

Tuesday, 15 January 2008

New York is the most popular destination for people travelling out of Heathrow Airport, a spokesman at the venue has stated.

Other places to see large traffic volumes include Paris, which was second, then Dublin, followed by Amsterdam and Frankfurt, he remarked.

Such a list has remained similar over the past couple of years, he claimed, because Heathrow is a hub and travellers use it to get to other places.

In many cases, people use the airport just to transfer and do not leave it at any point, he added.

He commented: "It's used for transfers quite a lot, so about 35 per cent of passengers are transfer passengers, they don't even leave the airport."

Travel Mole has recently said that trips made to the US by UK residents rose by three per cent last year.

A top ten list of destinations from the airport was completed by Edinburgh, Hong Kong, Los Angeles, Dubai and Glasgow.

People planning to travel via Heathrow could consider a viable travel insurance plan before making the journey.
