According to Wikipedia, the new development of Heathrow Terminal 2 was originally named Heathrow East Terminal, and occupies the sites where the previous Terminal 2 and the Queen’s Building stood. It was designed by Luis Vidal + Architects and opened on 4 June 2014.

The first flight to arrive at the terminal was United Airlines flight UA958 from Chicago, landing at 5:49 am local time on 4 June 2014. Queen Elizabeth II officially opened the terminal on 23 June 2014.

After a period of phased moves, the terminal has become home to Star Alliance (with the exception of new member Air India), as part of Heathrow Airport’s plan to maximise the efficiency of the airport by reducing transfer times and improving the passenger experience. The new terminal will have capacity for 30 million passengers each year.
