Terminal 4 at London Heathrow airport will reopen to passenger flights on Tuesday 14 June 2022.
The Terminal closed to departing flights in 2020 as Heathrow consolidated all flights in Terminals 2 & 5 in response to COVID-19.
There were doubts as to whether Terminal 4 would reopen. Before closing, the terminal hosted a relatively small number of flights.
Terminal 4 is not the easiest location to operate at as it is south of Heathrow’s two runways. That said, its reopening will relieve congestion at other terminals.

Around 30 airlines will progressively move back to Terminal 4. Airline moves in June include:
14 June: Qatar Airways
16 June: Kenya Airways, Korean Air, Royal Brunei Airlines
22 June: Air Malta, El Al, Etihad, ITA Airways, Kuwait Airways, Malaysia Airlines, Oman Air, Royal Air Maroc and Vietnam Airlines
23 June: Air Astana, Azerbaijan Airways

These dates may change. Other airlines may announce terminal changes at short notice.
Passengers can check the Heathrow website for the most up to date information.
