American Airlines is moving from Terminal 3 to Terminal 5 at London Heathrow from July 7, 2020.

The airline says that the move will “improve the customer experience and strengthen American Airlines and the International Airline Group’s (IAG) Atlantic Joint Business”

The announcement applies to all American Airline flights currently operating, which is four daily flights from LHR Terminal 5 to Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW), New York’s John F. Kennedy (JFK), Chicago O’Hare (ORD) and Miami (MIA).

“Moving American’s operations to Terminal 5 for the first time will greatly improve the customer travel experience, enabling faster and easier connections by working closely alongside our valued joint business partners,” said Rhett Workman, Managing Director Europe & Asia-Pacific. “While our surroundings may have changed, the safety of our customers and team members remains of paramount importance and we are working tirelessly with our partners and the airport to ensure we continue to offer a safe travel experience.”

American’s check-in desks will be located in Terminal 5 Zone C for Flagship Business, Priority and Main Cabin customers. Flagship First customers can check-in using British Airways’ exclusive First Wing.

Customers travelling on American or connecting onto a British Airways or Iberia flight from Terminal 5 will be able to enjoy the British Airways lounges – two of which are currently open (as of tomorrow).
