    Heathrow’s Terminal 2 is no more, at least for passengers, for now.

    The facility on Monday hosted its last passengers and is now due to be scrapped to make way for a new Terminal 2 in a planned ₤1 billion modernization program. The facility opened in 1955 (constructions began in 1951).

    Next year should see work start on the new T2, with the plan of opening for duty in 2014. The facility is eventually to accommodate the Star Alliance carriers.

    Air France operated the last flight out of T2. Paris was also the city involved in the opening flight for BA at T5.

    At its peak, in 2002, T2 handled 86,824 flights.
