Heathrow terminal three

Remember...Pre-book your airport parking and save

In recent years Terminal three, the closest of the existing terminals to T5, at Heathrow underwent some major development and improvements.

The development of terminal three has reduced congestion and streamlined the arrivals an departures procedures for foot passengers and traffic along with improving airport security in front of the terminal. The improvements were part of a £6 billion upgrade of the airport's facilities.

Airlines that fly from Terminal 3 include American Airlines, Emirates, Jet Airways and Virgin Atlantic.

Further planned improvements to the terminal are an innovative kerbside check-in and a glass atrium extension to provide much more space for check-in. To alleviate arrivals congestion, the improvements for Heathrow terminal 3 include a new four-lane drop-off area. Additional stairway access with lifts and escalators to the departure area promises to be another welcome addition at the UK's busiest airport.

An underground baggage system in a tunnel under the airport’s taxiways, and due to be completed by 2011, are expected to improve transfers between Terminals three and five.
