United Airlines is marking 10 years of its operations at London Heathrow Terminal 2, since becoming the first airline to operate a flight at The Queen’s Terminal on 4 June 2014 on 767-300 aircraft.

“We are proud to mark 10 years of flying between Terminal 2, London Heathrow, one of the most important airports in United’s global network, and the US,” said Karolien De Hertogh, United Airlines director of sale for UK and Ireland.

“For over 30 years we have provided a critical link between London and the US, maintaining service throughout the pandemic and strategically growing our schedule to keep our customers in these key global business centres connected.

“We expect another busy summer for international travel in 2024 and are proud to offer our customers in the UK extensive travel options and the possibility to connect via our U.S. hubs to over 220 destinations across the Americas.”

“Together with our member airlines, including United, we proudly celebrate a decade at Heathrow Terminal 2,” said Renato Ramos, vice president of strategy, Star Alliance.

“Heathrow is delighted to celebrate a decade of delivering excellent service to passengers travelling through Terminal 2, previously voted ‘Best Terminal in the World’ at the World Sky Awards by Skytrax,” said Ross Baker, chief customer officer, Heathrow.

“In collaboration with our partner airlines, including Star Alliance and its member airlines, we have seen almost 148 million passengers travel through Terminal 2’s doors and enjoy the world-class retail and food and beverage options available.

“Reaching this landmark is an opportunity for us to enjoy looking back on a decade of achievements, while also looking ahead to the next ten years as we continue to create an extraordinary airport that is fit for the future.”
