In honor of Queen Elizabeth, Heathrow Airport announced that its new Terminal 2 will be named after Her Majesty. Dubbed â€śTerminal 2: The Queenâ€™s Terminal,â€ť it is set to be completed in November of this year then will undergo six months of testing, including 182 trials by 14,000 people, before it officially opens on June 4, 2014.
â€śThe Queen opened the original Terminal 2 more than half a century ago and weâ€™re delighted that Her Majesty has kindly agreed to give her name to the new Terminal 2,â€ť said Heathrowâ€™s Development Director John Holland-Kaye.
The Queen opened the old Terminal 2, then called the Europa Building, in 1955 just two years after her coronation. Airport officials said the new Terminal 2 will have a similar feel to the airportâ€™s modern Terminal 5 and it will have new check-in and bag drop technology with a full array of shops and restaurants.
