Fully authorised and supported by Heathrow, the Haynes Heathrow Airport Manual takes the reader behind the scenes of the world's busiest airport, investigating all aspects of its organisation.
The author covers airport management, runways, terminals, air traffic control and airport operations, including fuelling, baggage services, freight, passenger services, retail, engineering, emergency services, ground transportation systems, security, meteorology, simulator training and telecommunications. This is a fascinating subject, ripe for the Haynes Manual treatment.
