Terminal Update: Flights From India To Now Arrive At Terminal 4 of London Heathrow Airport


Starting from 29th June all flights from India to London will arrive at terminal 4 of Heathrow Airport, while all departures from London to India will be operating from Terminal 2.

“Effective today, all flights from India to London will arrive at Terminal 4, while departures from London to India will be from Terminal 2 of London Heathrow Airport,” said Vistara in a social media post.

Dedicated Terminal For Red List Countries

Earlier this month, Heathrow Airport opened a dedicated new terminal for arrivals from countries designated as ‘Red List’.

There are 43 countries on the red list, but direct flights are permitted from only India, Pakistan, and Bangladesh.


At that time it was decided that all travelers on direct flights from ‘Red List’ countries will go through Terminal 3 and then move directly to a government-approved quarantine facility booked at the passengers’ own expense.

Terminal 4

“Red list routes will likely be a feature of UK travel for the foreseeable future as countries vaccinate their populations at different rates. We’re adapting Heathrow to this longer-term reality and have opened Terminal 4 as an arrivals facility for red list passengers arriving on direct flights.”

“As a result of the facility moving to Terminal 4, Terminal 3 will temporarily close,” said Heathrow Airport on its website.

Departures From London Heathrow Airport

It may be noted that terminal 4 of Heathrow airport is currently operating as a dedicated Red List Arrivals Facility so all departing flights continue to operate from either Terminal 2 or Terminal 5.


When you next depart from Heathrow, remember that you only need to arrive at the airport 2 hours before a European flight and 3 hours before a long-haul flight.
