British Airways (BA) has announced that flights from Dublin Airport will be moving to Heathrow’s Terminal 5 in October this year.
BA currently offers eight flights a day from Dublin and has been operating into Terminal 1 at Heathrow since it resumed service on the route in June 2012.
The move is expected to cut minimum connection times to onward British Airways flights from Terminal 5 by 30 minutes, to just one hour.
Kevin Toland, chief executive of DAA said the move to T5 would greatly enhance the product on offer to BA’s passengers flying to and from Dublin Airport. “Over the past 18 months, BA has twice increased capacity on its Dublin-London route and we’re delighted with today’s news that its Dublin flights will be relocating to Terminal 5 in Heathrow from October.”
Willie Walsh, chief executive of International Airlines Group, the parent company of British Airways, said that the move will ensure that customers benefit from quicker and smoother connections to over 100 cities worldwide served by British Airways from Terminal 5.
“I am delighted that British Airways passengers from Ireland will soon benefit from this relocation to our dedicated hub at Terminal 5,” Mr Walsh said.
“Delivering a top class and unparalleled travelling experience for our customers is of paramount importance. Whether making a journey for business or leisure, passengers will now easily be able to connect to important long-haul and European destinations without having to transfer between terminals.
“In addition to enjoying the excellent facilities at our award winning terminal, this move reduces flight transfer time to just 60 minutes, and means that customers have a quicker journey through our dedicated terminal at Heathrow.”
