The process will begin at the end of 2024.

This week has been a big one for British Airways, with the UK flag carrier sharing exciting announcements regarding subjects such as its short-haul cabin and long-haul route network. However, its upgrade plans for the coming years also concern the airport experience, including the refurbishment of all of its Heathrow lounges.

As exclusively revealed yesterday by Head For Points, British Airways is set to fully refurbish all of its lounges at its London Heathrow Airport (LHR) hub in the coming five years. Work on the project is set to start in late 2024, with the Terminal 5 Arrivals Lounge being the first in line to receive a makeover as part of the program.

According to Head For Points, this decision is strategically advantageous due to the facility being situated landside. Additionally, the British Airways website notes that it has relatively limited opening hours, running from 05:00 to 14:00 to target earlier long-haul arrivals. As such, this leaves plenty of time later in the day for the refresh of the lounge, which will include a new barista coffee facility, to take place.
