@chanel
the second picture is not Heathrow, it's the taxi bridge built at Gatwick Airport, south of London.

Nick Has stats on this.

This Terminal alone would be a bigger busier airport than LAX.

I think was one.

It will also be the biggest building in the UK (I think)...with a ground area covering the same space as 10 football fields (not including car park)

Terminal 5 will be able to handle 30million passengers per year, taking Heathrow's total number of passengers to around 90 million. This will make Heathrow the world's busiest airport.


The new terminal building will be big enough to fit around fifty football pitches across its five floors.


The terminal's control tower will be the highest in the UK.


Around 18km of conveyor belt will be used to transport luggage around the terminal when it opens.

So T5 will be only for BA and it's OneWorld buddies? Will BA keep using T4, and if so for what type of flights (eg, European only, etc.)? Will T3, T2 and T1 stay around?

Biggest question: Why does BA need so much capacity?

Not the form, but the shape of the main terminal, I think

T5



and Toronto's T1

The shape is an obvious reference to the shape of an airplane wing!

Also T5 went through the longest and most expensive planning inquiry in British history lasting 10 years even before it was approved let alone when it was initally announced and designed. Chances are the design with modifications was designed before Toronto.

BA will be moving ALL its Heathrow Operations into T5, with like you said its One World buddies like Qantas and Cathay Pacific.

But when talking about London airports you have to mention Gatwick and Stansted. Stansted is earmarked for expansion of an additional 2 runways which when realised will mean Stansted will handle more passengers than Heathrow. Heathrow is also earmarked for a possible 3 runway if BAA can sort out pollution issues, one assumes that a further terminal would serve that runway as well meaning a possible T6.

London truly is the worlds busiest air centre.

What this airport needs is a new runway not a new terminal building as the 2 runways are saturated to breaking point until it doesnt have the capability to absorb extra traffic arising out of the new terminal. However, the NIMBYs have been shouting it down for years. Many airports with less traffic have more runways than heathrow. For example, Singapore and amsterdam has at least three.
