Passengers travelling to London Heathrow with Aer Lingus will enjoy shorter walking distances and quicker transfer times after the airline moves to Terminal 2 today.
All 48 Aer Lingus flights per day to and from Dublin, Cork, Shannon and Belfast City airports will now operate out of the new terminal, known as the Queen's Terminal.
The "gate to kerb" time will be 50 per cent less than before, while transfers to other flights will be "seamless", the airline said.
New flight connections will also be made possible through the same terminal with a number of partner airlines, including United Airlines and Air Canada.
"Arriving into T2 will be quick and easy with direct access to all of the transport links, including Heathrow Express, meaning Paddington Station can be reached in just 15 minutes," the airline said.
