Warsaw, October 15, 2014 - Spacious modern interiors, smooth check-in and larger number of shops and restaurants - LOT has started operations in the most modern area of Heathrow, the T2 Terminal, also known as the Queen’s Terminal.
The new terminal offers the unprecedented comfort to Heathrow’s passengers. All LOT Economy, Economy Plus and Business passengers can use 66 automatic check-in kiosks and baggage desks, and then proceed to one of 27 security check points. All that significantly reduces the check-in time and one can reach the departure area within just several minutes. And there are 33 shops and 17 restaurants available to suit every taste. The terminal offers also the unique “Personal Shopper” service. Just take a seat comfortably at the designated place and your dedicated assistant will present you with the products of your interest, do the shopping and bring them to you.
The passengers of LOT Business Class can use the new executive lounge with a breathtaking view over one of the world’s busiest runways!
One of the key advantages of Terminal 2 is its very good communication with the centre of London. The terminal is directly connected to the railway station from which Paddington station can be reached within just 15 minutes by the Heathrow Express! For passengers arriving at the airport by car, there are as many as 1,300 parking spaces available.
The Terminal 2 has, since the very beginning, been called the home of Star Alliance, since all alliance airlines flying to Heathrow will operate there. At present, together with LOT, there are several airlines using the new terminal.
London is one of the key European destinations of LOT. Each day, the passengers are offered as many as three direct connections from Warsaw, LO281 at 7:50, LO279 at 15:10 and LO285 at 20:00. The return flights take off at 6:35 (LO286), 10:25 (LO282) and 17:50 (LO280). The timetable has been arranged so as to allow the passengers to either spend an entire day in the capital of the UK, or enable comfortable transfers via Warsaw to many cities in Poland, Europe and worldwide.
The new terminal at Heathrow, the biggest European airport, means a great challenge to build this impressive building in the vicinity of two world’s busiest runways.
The construction of the terminal itself is considered one of the largest real estate projects in the entire UK. It took £11 billion to modify entire Heathrow Airport to the needs of the new project, and the cost of the building alone was £2.5 billion. The project created over 1.7 thousand jobs. Now this state-of-art terminal is available for LOT’s passengers!
Those traveling with LOT from London can choose from dozens destinations among Poland, Europe, North America and China on their flights with just one convenient stop-over in Warsaw. All long haul flights are operating by Boeing 787 Dreamliner. This guarantees the most comfortable journey for example from London to Beijing.
Two is more than one, so LOT still gives an opportunity to fly from Heathrow to Beijing onboard two Dreamliners! Still for two upcoming weeks, on Thursdays and Fridays, one of LOT flights to and from London will be operated by this state-of-art aircraft, which normally operates on long-haul flights only, to New York, Chicago, Toronto and Beijing.
LOT Polish Airlines is one of the oldest airlines in the world. It has been connecting Poland with the rest of the world since 1929. Now planes in LOT colours fly to nearly 60 destinations in Europe, the Middle East, North America and Asia. Many of LOT's pilots are among the European and World Champions in several types of aviation sports. Since 2003 LOT is a member of Star Alliance whose network currently offers more than 21,900 daily flights to 1,328 airports in 195 countries all over the world.
