Air Canada Moves to Brand New Terminal 2 at London Heathrow
Air Canada has moved its operations at London Heathrow to the airport’s new Terminal 2, the Queen’s Terminal, which opened for service on June 4. Prior to the move, the airline operated out of Heathrow’s Terminal 3.
Air Canada’s check-in and baggage drop, which include self-service kiosks in addition to traditional check-in counters, are now located in Zone A of the check-in lobby in Terminal 2. The airline also has a new Maple Leaf Lounge for top-tier Air Canada and Star Alliance passengers located in Terminal 2, adjacent to the B gates. The new lounge is 7,535 square feet (700 square meters) in size and features a tended bar and spa-like shower facilities.
Air Canada is the second airline to begin operating out of Terminal 2, after United Airlines moved its operations there earlier this June.
Over the next six months, all Star Alliance member airlines are expected to begin conducting their arrivals and departures from Terminal 2. Turkish Airlines and Eva Air will move to the terminal on July 2, Avianca on July 4, and United’s codeshare partner Aer Lingus on July 9.
Air Canada currently offers nonstop flights between London Heathrow and eight destinations in Canada, including Toronto, Montreal, Halifax, Ottawa, Calgary, Edmonton, Vancouver, and St. John’s.
