What happened to Terminal 1?
You might be wondering why Heathrow Airport’s four terminals are numbered 2 to 5. That’s because Terminal 1 was closed to the public in 2015 as the airlines operating from it moved to the airport’s bigger and better terminals. Whilst it is still there, Terminal 1 is scheduled to be demolished in order to make way for a major expansion of Terminal 2.
