The London airport has also only opened its singular runway between the hours of 2pm and 10pm for scheduled flights which included repatriation flights for stranded Britons.
The difficult decision was in response to most airlines having to suspend the majority of their flights due to plummeting demand from countries around the world.
Another main airport in the capital, London City Airport, also completely closed its runway to all flights due to the coronavirus.
The world’s busiest airport, Heathrow, was also forced to make a similar decision by closing down one of its terminals.
