Iberia has confirmed plans to move its Heathrow operations from T5 to T3 next week.

In a statement the carrier said that the move would take place on July 12, with Iberia’s check-in counters being located in zone C at T3.

Business class passengers and Iberia Plus Gold, Platinum and Infinita customers will have access to the Galleries Club or First lounges within the terminal.

Oneworld member and joint business partner American Airlines will also move from T5 to T3 on the same day, having moved into T5 in July 2020 following the start of the Covid-19 pandemic.

The news follows BA’s announcement at the end of June that it would be moving all of its current long-haul T3 departures to T5, as well as over half of its short-haul services.

Iberia said that all of BA’s flights to and from Spain would operate from T5 going forward.

The Spanish flag carrier also stressed that “The services on offer will be the same as in the previous terminal, including special services such as providing assistance for passengers who need wheelchairs and unaccompanied minors, and access to Fast Track and VIP lounges”.
