A new check-in area has also been created for customers during the last few months including a dedicated area for premium customers to use. The new additions to British Airways’ Terminal 3 schedule will include flights to Miami, Phoenix, Las Vegas, Denver, Vancouver, Cape Town, Accra and Nairobi.

Ian Howick, director of Heathrow for British Airways, said: “We have invested in new facilities in Terminal 3 and our customer service teams are really looking forward to giving several thousand more customers a warm welcome every day. The airport has also enhanced its baggage system which will ensure a smoother and faster transfer of bags between flights in Terminal 3 and 5.

British Airways presently operates approximately 700 flights a day at Heathrow and carries more than 110,000 customers to and from the airport on busy days. Once the long-haul flights moves are complete Terminal 5 will be home to 115 destinations and Terminal 3 will serve 21 British Airways destinations.
