Potential project cost savings of £6.7bn are claimed over the airports' £18.6bn scheme.
Moving the runway to avoid it straddling and bridging the M25, saves £1.5bn, and losing a proposed airside passenger transit system, saves a further £1bn.
Not content with that, modifications to the new terminal design and airside taxiway system, as well as dropping the £1.1bn plans to expand Terminal 2, makes up the rest of the nearly £7billion cost saving.
The Arora Group is currently one of the largest Heathrow landowners on the footprint. Arora is involved in a Crown Plaza and Holiday Inn Express linked to Terminal 4 and another hotel linked to Terminal 2.
