London Heathrow Terminal Changes

London Heathrow airport’s new Terminal 5 was ceremoniously inaugurated by the Queen yesterday. Now the fun begins. Many airlines will be switching terminals at Heathrow, so if you travel to London a lot and have become familiar with “your” terminal, be ready for changes. Overall, the changes make sense, in that they will group airline alliance carriers together (unless alliances change in the future).

BCD Travel has a chart of the probable changes, and our friends over at The CrankyFlier also summarize the situation quite well. The changes will not happen all at once, but are spread out over the next year. Bottom line, check with your airline, and be ready for some new experiences.
