Oneworld’s biggest airport terminal co-location project to date is completed on October 29 with the final moves of the alliance’s member airlines at London Heathrow.

All Qantas’ operations at the airport and British Airways’ Bangkok, Singapore and Sydney services will switch then from Terminal 4 to Terminal 3.


Finnair and Iberia moved to Terminal 3 earlier this year, along with a number of British Airways’ short-haul routes. Already based in Terminal 3 were all the other oneworld on-line carriers ― American Airlines, Cathay Pacific, Japan Airlines and Royal Jordanian.

All of British Airways’ other operations are now housed in the new Terminal 5. Terminal 3 is the closest of Heathrow’s existing terminals to Terminal 5.

The project brings the operations of the alliance’s eight carriers serving the airport from across all five of its passenger terminals to just two, smoothing oneworld transfer at its biggest European (and its biggest international) hub.

Terminal 3 is nearing the completion of a multi-million dollar up-grade to bring its customer facilities up to a similar standard to those offered at Terminal 5, including a new British Airways lounge facility, whose First Class suite will open when its Sydney flights move there.
