Moves to consolidate the presence at Heathrow of member airlines of the Star Alliance in Terminal 2, the Queen’s Terminal, have been finalised with the successful transfer of Air India operations.
The national flag carrier has up to eight daily flights in and out of the airport with either Boeing 777 or Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft and has been serving London for nearly 70 years.
The present schedule covers two daily flights to Delhi, one daily flight to Mumbai, four weekly flights to Ahmedabad and three weekly flights to New York Newark.
Star Alliance CEO Jeffrey Goh said: “With 24 of our member airlines flying to Heathrow, the airport is served by more of our member carriers than any other airport in our worldwide network.
“Our long-term strategy for Heathrow therefore has always been to locate all our members under the same roof. With Air India’s successful move to the Queen’s Terminal we have now accomplished this.
“Ever since we started operations from Terminal 2 at Heathrow, we have been receiving positive customer feedback on the new facility. We are certain the 1,000 or so Air India passengers who will be using it every day will notice a significant improvement in their travel experience.”
