ONEWORLD, the airline alliance headed by British Airways in the UK, has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with BAA Heathrow to consolidate all its non-BA operations into an up-graded T3 during 2009.
BAA Heathrow describes the MoU as a key part of its strategy to co-locate airline alliances.
British Airways will be the only airline housed at the new T5. The size and shape of its Heathrow schedule in 2008 will mean a small number of its services will be located at Terminal 3.
These will include its departures to Australia and Spain, to maximise the cohesion of its joint services with Oneworld partners Qantas and Iberia.
The UK carrier's operations at Heathrow are currently split between three terminals ” 1, 3 and 4.
Of the alliance's other carriers, four are already based at Terminal 3 ” American Airlines, Cathay Pacific, and candidate members Japan Airlines and Royal Jordanian.
The MoU will mean Aer Lingus and Finnair moving to join them from Terminal 1, Iberia and Malev from Terminal 2, and Qantas from Terminal 4.
