Passengers connecting through Heathrow Terminal 2 will now benefit from a faster transfer experience thanks to an improved journey through Terminal 2B, Star Alliance said in a release. 

“The new facility enables passengers, whose flights arrive and depart at T2B, to pass through security within the same concourse, providing a more convenient and faster travel experience,” it said.

Under the new facility, inbound aircraft can be allocated a stand close to the departing aircraft and passengers will only need to walk a matter of steps for their next flight. 

Christian Draeger, vice-president customer experience, Star Alliance, said: “Having all member carriers located in the same terminal has allowed us to reduce the minimum connecting time between flights and with the additional security in T2B, transfers via Heathrow Terminal 2 are becoming even more convenient and attractive for our customers.” With this, passengers will have much more time to relax, said Simon Eastburn, director of airline business development for Heathrow. Air India is among the Star Alliance airlines that serve Heathrow.
