Once T 5 is complete they will demolish terminal 2 which BAA estimates will cost £10-20 million. There is also a proposal to for the closure or redevelopment of terminal 1 also.
|Quoting B742 (Reply 4):|
What will happen to all of the flights at T2 while the development is taking part?

BAA already has eyes on London Heathrow Terminal 6, although it's still going under its current name of Paris Charles de Gaulle
(By 2012) T4 will become Skyteam (which, if you think about it, only requires like 10 gates? (4 for Air France/KLM, 1 for CSA Chech, 2 for Alitalia, and 1 for Korean Air, plus 2 for future frequency increase)).
|Quoting Kaitak744 (Reply 13):|
All this is expected to be finished by the 2012 Olympics.
T1 will become Virgin and Star Alliance
T3 will become One World
T4 will become Skyteam (which, if you think about it, only requires like 10 gates? (4 for Air France/KLM, 1 for CSA Chech, 2 for Alitalia, and 1 for Korean Air, plus 2 for future frequency increase)). Also, all other airlines will fill the rest of the gates at T4
T5 will become BA and QF.

I am sorry i am a mere woman and dont understand your 'hotel' terminology are you trying to say that Virgin will have all of T3? I have not heard any such rumours in fact just the opposite.
|Quoting Concorde001 (Reply 15):|
No, BAA have been looking at the following terminal arrangements:
T1 = Star Alliance
T2 = DEMOLISHED (subject to approval by the CAA)
T3 = Virgin (they recently signed a contract with BAA and the designers of HKG to refurbish their area of the terminal), oneworld carriers, (except BA and possibly QF) + non alligned carriers.
T4 = Skyteam + non alligned carriers, so they will need more than 10 gates. It is also important to remember that Air France, Alitalia and KLM handle other airlines at LHR, for example Olympic, China Eastern, Icelandair, Tunisair, Air Seychelles, Kenya Airways, Aeroflot and many others! In addition, with EU-US Open Skies on the way, if CO/DL are able to get slots they will be in T4!
T5 = Britsh Airways and possibly Qantas.
Also the new terminal consists of demolishing T1 & T2 and building a new larger terminal,capable of handling 30 million passengers a year. My question is, where will the Star Alliance carriers go if T1 is demolished?
