World Leaders Assemble in London for Queen Elizabeth II’s Funeral

Global Leaders, Heads of State and Royal’s gathered in London on September 19th for the funeral of Queen Elizabeth II.

Queen Elizabeth II died on September 8th 2022, having served as the Queen of England for 70 years.

UK police and secret service launched a massive operation in and around London for the funeral, which took place on September 19th.

Visiting dignitaries were warned in advance that Heathrow Airport, the main airport serving London, would not accept any private jet arrivals in the run-up to the day.

As a result, government transport and private jets used different airfields around London.

These included Biggin Hill, which hosted delegations from Hungry and Azerbaijan, and Gatwick, which hosted delegations from China, Algeria and Saudi Arabia.

Much of the larger international traffic used Stansted Airport in the north of London. Visitors included delegations from Brazil, Namibia, Morocco, Cyprus, Kuwait, Japan and the US.

RAF Northolt, close to Heathrow was also busy, with visitors from Switzerland, Portugal, France, Ireland, Sweden, Spain, Germany and Italy.

Luton Airport saw visitors from Turkmenistan, Turkey, Macedonia, the Czech Republic and Slovakia.

Farnborough Airport, home of the Farnborough Air Show, hosted visitors from Bahrain, Australia and Nigeria.
