Qatar Airways and Japan Airlines are to temporarily relocate to London Heathrow Terminal 5.

Both airlines had temporarily relocated to Terminal 2 due to the closure of Terminals 3 and 4.

They will now move to Terminal 5 from Monday 27 and Wednesday 29 July 2020 respectively where they will join fellow Oneworld alliance members American Airlines, BA and Iberia.

Note that at the time of publication, this is not reflected in all online timetables.

It may seem odd these airlines are moving terminals twice due to COVID-19, this is most likely due to systems issues at Terminal 5 which were originally designed for BA.

Although not confirmed, timetables indicate that Finnair will relocate to Terminal 5 from Saturday 15 August.

In terms of other Oneworld alliance members, Cathay Pacific, LATAM, Malaysia Airlines, Qantas, Royal Jordanian, Royal Air Maroc and SriLankan Airlines remain at Terminal 2, to the extent they are operating international flights from London Heathrow.

Currently, Heathrow airport does not expect Terminal 3 to reopen until late 2020 at the earliest. This will depend on how demand recovers in the autumn. Terminal 4 is not expected to reopen until 2021 at the earliest.
