British Airways: London Heathrow longhaul terminal switches

From 14 October 2015, eight longhaul routes will be moving from Terminal 5 at London Heathrow, to Terminal 3. Details are summarised below:

London Heathrow Terminal Moves

All British Airways services to and from Accra, Cape Town, Denver, Las Vegas, Miami, Nairobi, Phoenix and Vancouver will move from London Heathrow Terminal 5 to Terminal 3.

The move of these longhaul flights is the last part of British Airways’ consolidation into two terminals at Heathrow, following the closure of Terminal 1 in June 2015.

Once the longhaul flights moves are complete, Terminal 3 will serve 21 British Airways destinations, meaning that we can offer better connections to many of our oneworld partners, who are also based within the terminal.

London Heathrow Terminal 3

London Heathrow Terminal 3 has undergone extensive refurbishment work over the past few months. Departing customers will use a new check-in area in, where there is a brand new dedicated area for premium customers. The airport has also enhanced its baggage system, which will ensure a smoother and faster transfer of bags between flights in Terminals 3 and 5.

Departure lounges

There is a Galleries First lounge and Galleries Club lounge in departures Zone F. The Elemis Travel Spa within the Galleries Club lounge is reopening to coincide with the longhaul services moving into Terminal 3.

Arrivals lounge facilities

The American Airlines arrivals lounge at London Heathrow Terminal 3 is available to all eligible American Airlines customers and eligible British Airways customers on flight numbers BA206, BA208 and BA218. All other lounge eligible British Airways arrivals at Terminal 3 are invited to use the British Airways Arrivals lounge in Terminal 5.
