British Airways at T5 - Minimising Environmental Impact

Heathrow is the United Kingdom's (UK's) premier international hub airport. Heathrow's largest operator is British Airways, the UK's largest international scheduled airline. Opened in March 2008, Terminal 5 (T5) is a state-of-the-art facility and home to approximately 92% of British Airways' Heathrow flights. Created at a cost of £4.3 billion, T5 can handle 30 million passengers annually. British Airports Authority (BAA) and British Airways have partnered with one another to improve the environmental performance of Heathrow's ground handling operation. Issues addressed in developing T5 include on-site historical and topographical challenges; carbon emissions reduction; local air quality management; noise reduction; energy efficiency; and "green" design.
