Leading Irish carrier Aer Lingus is all set to become one of the biggest operators at the newly built Terminal 2 at London’s Heathrow Airport.
The new Terminal 2 is being built at an estimated cost of $3.7 billion (2.9 billion Euro) and is scheduled to open next year. The construction of Terminal 2 is currently underway and is expected to be completed in November this year.
Aer Lingus in a statement said that it will be moving its flights operations to Terminal 2 on July 9, 2014. Aer Lingus will become the ninth airline to start its operations from the new facility.
Various carriers like United Airlines, Air China and Air Canada would be among the first airlines to begin operations out of this new facility. A total of 26 airlines are expected to use Terminal 2 for their flight operations.
The capacity of Terminal 2 would be to handle nearly 20 million passengers every year.
