After a meeting between the president of Emirates Airlines, Tim Clark; and the CEO of Heathrow Airport, John Holland-Kaye, the two issued a joint statement on the airport’s 100,000 cap on daily departing passengers, saying the Dubai-based carrier was “ready and willing to work with the airport to remediate the situation over the next two weeks, to keep demand and capacity in balance and provide passengers with a smooth and reliable journey through Heathrow this summer.” Emirates also said it had capped further sales on its flights out of the airport until mid-August “to assist Heathrow in its resource ramp up,” adding that it was “working to adjust capacity.” Last week the carrier had published a statement condemning what it called the “entirely unreasonable and unacceptable” move by Heathrow, which Emirates said had given it just 36 hours to comply with capacity cuts. In response, Heathrow said, “We have tried to be as supportive as possible to airlines and our 100,000 cap on daily departing passengers is significantly higher than the 64,000 cap at Schiphol” (in Amsterdam), adding that “it would be disappointing if instead of working together, any airline would want to put profit ahead of a safe and reliable passenger journey.” In the meantime, Emirates said its flights out of Heathrow — currently six per day — would operate as scheduled, and ticketed passengers would be able to travel as booked. Heathrow’s capacity cap is due to remain in place until Sept. 11.
