Heathrow Airport said its passenger numbers fell 83% in March

Heathrow Airport passenger numbers fell 83% in March compared to the same month last year, Britain's biggest airport said in a statement today, as the pandemic continued to hit travel. 

Britain's aviation industry is hoping that flying will rebound in late May once Covid-19 restrictions are eased, but uncertainty remains after UK government proposals for allowing travel fell short of industry hopes.
