The HyperAirport project proposed a network of Hyperloop high-speed transit links between airports as a means of adding airport capacity in the South-East of England.

Adding adjacent runway and terminal capacity is costly and challenging, but in the case of Heathrow additional capacity is necessary for maintaining the UK's connection to the rest of the world.
HyperAirport proposes the integration of a Hyperloop network into South-East England's airport infrastructure by connecting Heathrow to satellite runways and underutilised regional airports. These high-speed links may provide a means of adding cost-effective, remote airport capacity when compared to adjacent airport expansion, such as Heathrow's proposed third runway.
By applying Hyperloop systems, total journey times for connecting remote airports and runways would be significantly shortened to times comparable of inter-terminal links.
