The Heathrow Journey
London Heathrow is one of the busiest and most critical international airport hubs in the world. Predictable and safe airflow is vital to ensuring 70 million passengers make connections. FOD events can lead to aircraft engine loss or tire failure on takeoff - dramatically impacting airflow for hours. Heathrow eliminated their FOD with the 2007 installation of the Tarsier system.
Since 2007, Heathrow's airflow has not been impacted by any unexpected FOD related emergencies. Tarsier has played a critical role in Heathrow's growth and support of its high capacity airflow by providing a safe and predictable landing surface.
