Heathrow Airport's Terminal 3 completes refurb

Fri, 10 Jul, 2009

The check-in area of Heathrow's Terminal 3 has been refurbished ahead of schedule.

A total of £16 million has been spent on improving the area, with technology now installed to make the check-in process more efficient for passengers.

Rob Norrington, development leader of Terminal 3, said: "We've worked hard to refurbish check-in so that passengers flying away this summer enjoy the best airport experience possible.

"Check-in remained open throughout, which certainly added to the challenge; however we planned carefully and worked with our airline partners throughout."

There is currently £133 million worth of refurbishment work being undertaken at Terminal 3, which will eventually see it have the largest security search area in the whole of Heathrow Airport, with a total of 17 lanes.

New doors are to be fitted on the entrance of the terminal in the coming months and it is hoped that by 2011 the Immigration and Baggage Reclaim halls will see renovation work completed.
