Heathrow Announces Opening Date of Terminal 2June 2013
Heathrow Airport's new terminal will open to its first passengers in exactly one year's time, the airport has announced. T2 will eventually serve 20 million people a year after its opening on 4th June 2014.
Pascall+Watson continue to design and develop the internal environment concepts, co-ordinate technical and operational interfaces and work them through the detailed and construction stages in readiness for the terminal’s scheduled opening.
More than 20 airlines and 25,000 staff will operate out of T2. Heathrow development director John Holland-Kaye said: "The new T2 has been designed around the needs of our passengers, to allow them to get to and from their flights as quickly as possible. Like T5, it will promise world-class customer service and a warm welcome to Britain, which visitors expect from the UK's hub airport."
