As British Airways prepares for its move into Terminal 5 on March 27, 2008, customers are being encouraged to check their flight details.
The first flights to move to Terminal 5 on March 27 include all British Airways’ domestic and European flights (with the exception of
Barcelona, Madrid, Lisbon, Nice and Helsinki).
Flights to and from Tripoli and longhaul services to and from Johannesburg, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Vancouver, Tokyo, Hong Kong
and Miami will also transfer on the same day.
On April 30, the remaining intercontinental flights will move to Terminal 5 with the exception of Singapore, Sydney and Bangkok.
Airways believes the long awaited move into the airline’s new home will mean a smoother and simpler experience for customers who should make it from
check-in, via fast bag drop and through security in around ten minutes.
Robert Boyle, British Airways’ commercial director,
said, “The opening of Terminal 5 heralds a new era in air travel. Customers can look
forward to a calmer, smoother, simpler airport experience at Heathrow. We’re very excited about the move and hope customers are too. In
order for them to arrive ready to fly and knowing what to expect, we’ve been sending regular communications to them and built a
comprehensive microsite to allow them to familiarise themselves with the building and its fantastic facilities.”
