Heathrow Terminal 2 set to be bulldozed

When it was opened in 1955, Heathrow Terminal 2 was one of the more modern terminals in the worldwide airline industry although after 316 million check-ins over 54 years it will today close for business awaiting a £1 billion redevelopment. The terminal will be bulldozed awaiting the development of a futuristic style terminus which will need to accommodate passengers and planes using the world's busiest airport hub.

Initially the terminal was designed to accommodate 1.2 million flies a year but when you consider this figure has now reached a massive 8 million flies a year it is easy to see why a redevelopment is desperately needed. Heathrow has for some time been the busiest airport in the world bringing together a massive array of different airlines and airline passengers from around the world.

BAA, the owner of Heathrow, has itself attracted significant attention over the last two years with many believing that the company has overstretched its finances in the short to medium term. There have been many problems for the airline industry over the last couple of years during which time we have seen a massive increase in so called "green taxes" and various other levies added to the ever-growing cost of operating an airline and an airport in the UK.
