It’s time to enjoy a bit of nostalgia now as we look back at London Heathrow airport during the 1980s.
By this point the London hub was firmly established as the world’s busiest international airport, and the home base to British Airways. It was also on the route network of most of the world’s long-haul carriers, as well as European airlines.
Aircraft types dominant during the 1980s included the early Boeing 737s and 747s, as well as 727s, 757s, DC-10s, Lockheed TriStars and the Airbus A300 and A310.
During the early 80s, types like the Trident and Caravelle were also common.
