**New London Heathrow Expansion Plans**
A group named Aurora is proposing a new Terminal at London Heathrow (LHR/EGLL)
The new terminal would enable a further 50 million passengers to travel through and also the terminal
would be known as Terminal 6.
The new terminal would be located according to Aurora on the west side of the airport and close to Terminal 5
As mentioned The terminal will be called “Terminal 6” however it will as well be broken up originally into two parts,
6A and 6B now these two will bring 35 million but as I said it will be 50 million, now that’s where there is a proposed extension on top of 6a and 6b which will be joined as 6C. Which will then carry a further 15 million passengers?
The total Aurora think it will be is:
around a nineteen billion dollars.
- Heathrow would only be willing to pay if the product was absolutely perfect
IAG (the owners of British Airways) who of course use Heathrow as their Hub/Home is very interested in the opportunities that this extension could provide to British Airways.
Virgin Atlantic has as well confirmed their interest.
Also, it’s worth mentioning that the people running Heathrow believe the plan should have been placed in years ago.
There is also a plan of a new third runway coming to Heathrow.
What are your thoughts on this? Are they doing good decisions?
