South African Airways to operate from Heathrow Terminal 2 in October

The new Terminal 2 - the home of Star Alliance at Heathrow - opened earlier this month, with South African Airways (SAA) operations scheduled to begin from the terminal on 22 October 2014.

Terminal 2: The Queen's Terminal, designed by lead architect Luis Vidal, was jointly developed by Heathrow, Star Alliance and its member carriers, with the aim of establishing a true seamless hub at one of the world’s premier international airports.  A positive tone for the passenger journey is set by the architectural design of the terminal, which uses natural light to create an open and airy atmosphere.

Star Alliance member United Airlines was the first to move in to the new facility. All 23 Star Alliance airlines operating from Heathrow will move over the next six months, marking the first time all member airlines will be collocated at the airport.  

SAA currently operates double daily direct flights from Heathrow Terminal 1 to Johannesburg, connecting to over 30 destinations within Southern Africa.
