Queen Elizabeth II opens Heathrow Terminal 2


Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II formally opened the new home of Star Alliance at London’s Heathrow Airport, unveiling a plaque that names the facility “Terminal 2: the Queen’s Terminal,” in recognition of her long association with the airport. Britain’s Queen, who last year celebrated the 60th anniversary of her coronation, also opened the former Terminal 2 building that once occupied the same site as the new purpose-built facility back in 1955. This latest addition to Heathrow airport will house all 23 Star Alliance member airlines that serve the UK’s only hub airport, including Air Canada.
