British Airways is moving eight long-haul services from London Heathrow Terminal 5 to Terminal 3 this month.

From October 14, the airline’s flights to Accra, Cape Town, Denver, Las Vegas, Miami, Nairobi, Phoenix and Vancouver will switch to T3.

BA said the move is because it is “no longer able to fit our entire Heathrow long-haul operation into T5”.

A statement said: “If your flight is due to arrive on October 14 onwards from any of the above airports, you will arrive at London Heathrow Terminal 3…

“The routes were chosen based on the integration of similar models of aircraft and to ensure we have enough baggage and parking stand facilities throughout the day for both arriving and departing flights.”

On June 30, BA moved all of its flights that operated out of Terminal 1 to either T3 or T5.
