Founded as a small grass airfield in 1929 under the name London Airport, Heathrow assumed its current name after the Ministry of Civil Aviation took over in 1946. Three runways had been completed by the following year and traffic boomed quickly after. Today, London Heathrow has excellent road links to London and most other parts of the country and a car hire Heathrow is one of the best places in the country from which to strike out.
