6 June 2013 by Luke McCormick

Heathrow's new Terminal 2 will open in a year's time, it has been announced.

The new terminal will open on 04 June 2014 and will eventually serve 20 million passengers a year. It will be home to 23 Star Alliance airlines, as well as Aer Lingus, Virgin Atlantic Little Red and Germanwings.

Despite being built in the centre of the world's busiest international airport, the £2.5bn construction project has not disrupted daily operations.

The new Terminal 2 is one of the largest privately funded construction projects in the UK and will have supported 35,000 jobs across the country by the time it opens.

John Holland-Kaye, Heathrow Development Director, said: "The new Terminal 2 has been designed around the needs of our passengers, to allow them to get to and from their flights as quickly as possible.

"Like Terminal 5, it will promise world-class customer service and a warm welcome to Britain, which visitors expect from the UK's hub airport.

"This next step in Heathrow's transformation will deliver a better journey for passengers, a more efficient and reliable infrastructure for airlines and additional jobs, trade and economic growth for the UK."

The terminal will use the latest technology, offering passengers greater choice as they travel through the airport. It will offer a variety of check-in options as well as fast and efficient bag drops. Passengers will be able to choose from a selection of 52 shops and 17 bars and restaurants, which will represent the best of modern Britain.
