London Heathrow Terminal 1 has been shut down after 47 years to allow Terminal 2 to be expanded.

The news comes as the Airports Commission is to announce its recommendation on whether a new runway should be built at Heathrow or Gatwick.

Under new plans, Terminal 2 will be extended to replace Terminal 1.

The last flight that flew out of Heathrow Terminal 1 was a British Airways flight to Hanover.

Heathrow chief executive John Holland Kaye said: “The closure of Terminal 1 marks another important milestone in the transformation of Heathrow.

“Terminal 1 has served Britain well for nearly 50 years, but will soon make way for the expansion of Terminal 2, giving Britain a world class airport that we can all be proud of.”
