It has been estimated by the Association of British Travel Agents that 2.1 million holiday makers will head abroad and the Heathrow airport is expected to be the busiest ever day on July 24, 2015. The West London airport officials are expecting to have more than 5,00,000 passengers to travel through this weekend which includes a record breaking 131,046 on July 24, 2015.
Most of the holidayers in the UK prefer Spain but the strike planned by the Spanish Air Traffic Control Service over the weekend can cause a problem. Other preferable sites for holiday include France, Greece, Cyprus and others. The popular long haul destination is Florida.
