BA to begin long-haul T5 transfer as under-fire BAA gets £400 million injection
British Airways will begin shifting long-haul flights to London Heathrow's Terminal 5 next month, it said in a joint statement with airports operator BAA.
The move will be phased, in contrast to the short-haul transfer that coincided with an operationally disastrous opening of its £4.3 billion ($8.4 billion) new home in March. "We will move our Terminal 4 long-haul program into Terminal 5 in phases," BA CEO Willie Walsh said, noting that the carrier took this decision "in the interests of customers." He added: "Terminal 5 is now working well."
