Aer Lingus’s Bids Adieu to Heathrow’s Terminal 1

Good news for Aer Lingus passengers as it is soon going to shift its operations from Heathrow’s Terminal 1 to the new and advanced Terminal 2 on July 9, 2014.

All Aer Lingus operations will be performed in this new terminal. There will be a transfer of 44 flights to and from Belfast, Cork, Dublin, and Shannon. Passengers need to visit Terminal 2 instead of Terminal 1 for their departure.

The old terminal had long and weary walks and will be a things of past for passengers flying to and from Ireland on Aer Lingus. Newly created Heathrow’s Terminal 2 will now meet all the requirements of Aer Lingus. On the moving day the airline will operate 44 flights to and from Cork, Belfast, Shannon and Dublin.

One of the spokesmen of Aer Lingus told that the ambiance of the new terminal will be pleasant. Passengers of Aer Lingus will now have a shorter and smoother travel. There will be a new lounge with natural light, shower, and a quiet place exclusively for Gold Circle frequent fliers.

Aer Lingus passengers transferring using Star Alliance part network airlines will now be able to transfer more smoothly because even they are moving their operations to Terminal 2. Few other airlines apart from Aer Lingus will be transferred to Terminal 2 including Star Alliance Airlines, German Wings and Virgin Airlines’ Little Red.

Heathrow’s airlines authority wants the new terminal to operate without any troubles for passengers. Therefore, they have decided to operate the new terminal initially at 10% capacity. This will reduce the over crowdedness of the airport zone. Hence, Terminal 2 will handle only 5,000 passengers on the first day contrary to Terminal 5 which opened with 40,000 passengers on the first day.

Four end-to-end trials with this terminal were already conducted with 3000 volunteers so that the pressure situation can be easily monitored and managed, ensuring that terminal 2 is ready for use in all aspects

Terminal 2 created similar to Terminal 5 and named in honor of Queen Elizabeth II. It started business on June 4, by welcoming the arrival of a flight from Chicago at 0555 hours. A total of 28 airlines are set to shift their operation here. The transfer process will take place in stages and will be completed over six months duration to reduce chaos.
