To monitor the procedures and facilities available to passengers and to make recommendations for their improvement and to coordinate with Heathrow Airport management on the content and scope of any specific monitoring exercises in order to prevent overlap or duplication of similar activities undertaken on the airport’s behalf.

To provide a passenger perspective on airport developments, particularly at the design stage.
