This project has taken absolutely ages to complete but why. I to have also tried to search online for more details but to no avail. Other than the extra stands that have been completed what has actually been done on this section of Kilo for it to have taken so long. The whole of Terminal 2 was completed in less time than the longstanding works on this section of apron. I should imagine that once the construction of Terminal 2C finally gets underway we're probably see a similar project.

Regarding Terminal 1, does anyone know why it hasn't already been partially demolished. I would have thought that the adjoining and unused car park would have at least been demolished by now.

I'm looking forward to the day when Terminal 1 is finally demolished and construction of the Terminal 2 extension along with Terminal 2C finally gets underway.

Sotonsean - New underground baggage system for T2 which is extremely complex and a major project, The excavations to do this were massive, plus of course delays due Covid etc. .

"Airline benefits surely equals pressure from the AOC on HAL"

a mere bagatelle compared to the pressure from the owners to get those dividends flowing I'm afraid

I had reason to visit Heathrow yesterday in search of the drop off for Terminal 3. What a nightmare. All was going well until we got close to the terminal’s short term car park where the signage ended. I was left with the option of entering the multi-storey in the hope that the ground floor was the drop off zone or now following the airport exit signs. More by luck than judgement I decided to follow the exit signs and eventually came across the drop off zone on the left.

Thanks for confirming. Would be good to see this finally finished.

One other thing I find strange is why some of the stands at the T5 piers donít have air bridges. Canít see any reason from Google maps why all the stands couldnít have air bridges and indeed the stands at the T2 pier all have them.

The size of the satellites was downsized when BAA / HAL cut the funding, so the building isn't as long as the parking apron. With T5B it means that stand 531 is remote as is 541, adjacent 542 is served by a very, very long glass walkway to the gate. T5C is similar and even smaller with 567 and 568 remote as well as 551 and 558. 557 has THE longest walk from the gate to the airbridge on the airport.

Thanks for confirming. I did think it was odd that the buildings themselves were not long enough. It still looks like the remote stands could be served by long air bridges like the ones you mention but maybe they are a step too far. I hate this sort half way house to save a few pennies. It canít be great having to bus in passengers for a wide body.

Indeed it was, by both BA and AZ. But both dropped the route at the end of July and didn't resume until W2019.
