Offering up to eight flights a day from Dublin and up to six flights from Belfast, British Airways’ current schedule has been operating into Terminal 1 since both routes started in June 2012. The move is expected  to cut minimum connection times to onward British Airways flights from Terminal 5 by 30 minutes, to just one hour.

Willie Walsh, Chief Executive of International Airlines Group, the parent company of British Airways, told guests at the Dublin Chamber of Commerce dinner that the move will ensure that customers benefit from quicker and smoother connections to over 100 cities worldwide served by British Airways from Terminal 5.

“I am delighted that British Airways passengers from Ireland will soon benefit from this relocation to our dedicated hub at Terminal 5,” he said. “Delivering a top-class and unparalleled travelling experience for our customers is of paramount importance. Whether making a journey for business or leisure, passengers will now easily be able to connect to important long-haul and European destinations without having to transfer between terminals.

“In addition to enjoying the excellent facilities at our award-winning terminal, this move reduces flight transfer time to just 60 minutes, and means that customers have a quicker journey through our dedicated terminal at Heathrow.”
