As part of a multi-billion Pound expansion of Heathrow Airport, there’s currently a new terminal under construction. And it will open 1 year from now.

Terminal 2 is being built on the same location as the older T2, which was demolished. It will be a new state of the art terminal in a similar vein to British Airway’s Terminal 5, which was built a few years ago. The redevelopment of T2 will significantly modernize Heathrow and bring it into the modern era – the previous building had been built in the 1950’s and was designed to handle a fraction of the traffic it eventually did.

The airport released a series of images today to give you a preview of what the new facility will look like. I think it looks amazing. I love Terminal 5, so I’m really excited out this. The new T2 will be the hub for the Star Alliance. Eventually Terminal 1 will be demolished and T2 and T5 will become the hubs for most airplanes at Heathrow going forward, with T4 being used by the Skyteam alliance.
