Hi,

Could someone tell me when will the terminal five at london heathrow start operations?

to which airliners it will cater?

will it be exclusively for british airways?

Quoting Anirudhvs (Thread starter):

Main Building (A), and Satellite B: 30th March 2008. Satellite C: 2011

BA flights except to Spain and Australia. (I think that's the latest). Things will change once Satellite C opens and the LHR re-organisation/Heathrow East come to fruition.

No, since it will cater to all classes of travel.

There have been many threads on this subject:

So far the date 30 March 2008 is still the planned date, and has been so for quite a while, without any delays. It looks like construction has been on schedule for a long time now!
