Paddington Airport

From 1928 to 1968, there was an international airport near Paddington station. As the closest airport to the West End, it was extremely popular, handling more than 30,000 customers a day.

This is depite the fact that, because Paddington International was in the middle of an extremely built-up area, planes had to taxi into the terminal from Northolt, travelling down the Westway.

The airport had to close in 1968 because the wider wingspans of modern planes could no longer handle the turning into Harrow Road.
