The airline group Star Alliance has marks ten years operating from London Heathrow’s terminal two on June 20, 2024.

The Queen’s terminal serves 22 Star Alliance airlines including Air Canada, Ethiopian Airlines, Lufthansa and Singapore Airline.

“Heathrow stands as a vital hub for our member airlines. With our collective offerings at the shared terminal, we’re proud to facilitate seamless experiences for thousands of passengers daily,” said Theo Panagiotoulias.

“On behalf of our member airlines, I extend gratitude to Heathrow for its decade-long support, enabling superior traveller experiences every day and for years to come.”

The decision to move all alliance members to the same terminal came in 2014 as a part of the ‘move under one roof’ initiative, in order to consolidate a ‘true alliance’ hub. This operation has allowed member airlines to streamline their operations allowing passengers to transition between star alliance airlines more easily and efficiently.

“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 at Heathrow.

“We have seen almost 73 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.”

The alliances’ member airlines currently offer 124 flights a day to 44 destinations in 23 countries.
