Heathrow Airport Departures

Terminal 1 

Heathrow Terminal 1 was one of five airport terminals at Heathrow Airport, serving the capital city of London. Terminal 1 closed on 29 June 2015. Prior to its closure, it was only occupied by Oneworld member British Airways which operated just 20 daily flights to 9 destinations. Its demolition enabled construction of the second phase of Terminal 2.


Terminal 2

Heathrow Terminal 2, also known as The Queen's Terminal, is an airport terminal at Heathrow Airport, the main airport serving London, United Kingdom. The new development was originally named Heathrow East Terminal and occupies the sites where the previous Terminal 2 and the Queen's Building stood. It was designed by Luis Vidal + Architects and opened on 4 June 2014. The original Terminal 2 opened in 1955 as the Europa Building and was the airport's oldest terminal.

Terminal 1 closed to passengers on 30 June 2015, although as Terminal 1's baggage system is used by Terminal 2, part of it will remain operational. Terminal 1 is due to be demolished, allowing for Terminal 2 to be extended at an as yet undisclosed date. Terminal 3 is also planned to be demolished by 2019, enabling a further extension of Terminal 2.

Built at a cost of £200 million, Terminal 4 was opened by the Prince and Princess of Wales on 1 April 1986. Until 2008 it was used mainly by British Airways.
