Around one thousand and three hundred airplanes take off and land at Heathrow’s two runways every day according to BAA. The runways are operating at nearly 99% capacity, a percentage the government would like to decrease with the addition of a third runway.

But the project has sparked many hostile reactions and protests since the government said it was underway. Two weeks ago, flash mob protesters descended on Heathrow’s Terminal 1 to sing against the airport expansion in a eurovision-themed demonstration.
