Terminal 1 has nothing to do with Terminal 8. Terminal 8 must be "expanded" by adding 2 gates and a few hard stands and reconfiguring some gates. At the same time, the first part of Terminal 6 will be under construction. When the work on 8 is done, including the internal work, BA will move over. Then Terminal 7 will be torn down to finish the construction of Terminal 6. This will all happen in only a few years.
Yes but Terminal 8 will need to be expanded again before Terminal 1 can be demolished. There will not be enough room in Terminal 6 for all the airlines in Terminal 1. Terminal 1 has ten gates.
No. The new Terminal 1 is being build in 3 phases. The first part will be built on top of the old Terminal 3 site and will have 11 gates. Then the second phase will be built on top of Terminal 2 with 3 gates. Then the last portion of the new Terminal 1 will be built on top of the old Terminal 1. There is no connection between Terminals 1 and 8 in the construction process.
It is really a shame that Terminal 1 is being demolished so young.
