Eight of British Airways’ long-haul services that have been operating from Terminal 5 at Heathrow were transferred by the airline last week back to Terminal 3 in the Central Area.
The flights affected are those to Accra, Cape Town, Denver, Las Vegas, Miami, Nairobi, Phoenix and Vancouver.
BA said the move was necessary because it was no longer able to fit the entire Heathrow long-haul operation into T5.
It added: “The routes were chosen based on the integration of similar models of aircraft and to ensure we have enough baggage and parking-stand facilities throughout the day for both arriving and departing flights.”
It is the second major move for BA at Heathrow this year. On 30 June, the airline transferred five services – Bilbao, Hanover, Luxembourg, Lyon and Marseille – from Terminal 1 to Terminal 3.
On the same date, BA switched its services to Amman, Baku, Beirut and Cairo from Terminal 1 to Terminal 5. www.britishairways.com
