Heathrow Airports unveils Terminal Two plans
Mon, 10 Aug, 2009
Heathrow Airport has today (August 10th) announced plans for a £1 billion new terminal which will house Star Alliance airlines.
Terminal Two will be the new home of the airline and plans to use 40 per cent less carbon than the current terminal.
Star Alliance airlines is due to service some 20 million passengers annually from the new facility which Mike Brown, Heathrow Airport's chief operating officer has called part of a "major programme of work".
He said: "These exciting plans will be a reality for millions of Heathrow's passengers, making every passenger journey a better one and underlining Heathrow's pre-eminent position at the heart of international travel and the global economy.
"Passengers travelling through Heathrow will be using new and extensively refurbished facilities, which provide us with an excellent platform from which we can provide a better service to our customers than ever before."
The first phase of the new construction is due to be completed in 2013 with a second phase, which plans to develop the capacity of the terminal still further to 30 million passengers annually, to be unveiled in 2019.
