Gulf Air has confirmed it will move its Heathrow services to Terminal 2 from this weekend, as part of the airport’s ongoing process of consolidating operations.
The carrier normally uses Terminal 4 at Heathrow, but as reported last week, the airport is effectively closing Terminals 3 and 4 for the time being, with all remaining flights departing from and arriving into either Terminals 2 or 5.
The gradual process has already seen Cathay Pacific, Emirates and Pakistan International Airlines switch services to Terminal 2, followed by Finnair, Qantas and Beijing Capital Airlines moving from T3 to T2 this week, and Qatar Airways switching from T4 to T2.
In a tweet Gulf Air said:
ALERT: In compliance with Heathrow Airport Holdings, our check-in counters will be relocated to Zone A at Terminal 2 in London Heathrow Airport (LHR) until further notice as of 25 April, 2020.

This page on the Heathrow website shows an up to date list of carriers and which terminals they are operating from, although the airport says that “It is very important that those passengers who are using Heathrow for essential travel, keep in touch with their airline to confirm which terminal their flight departs from before travelling to the airport”.
Earlier this month Heathrow moved to a single runway operation, “as a temporary measure to increase resilience and safety for colleagues, passengers and cargo”. The move sees the airport alternating between runways on a weekly basis.
Last week Heathrow said that passenger numbers for March 2020 fell by 52 per cent compared with 2019, with demand for April expected to fall by 90 per cent.
