Terminal 5 of Heathrow Airport opened in March 2008 for phase 1 of the project. This will allow the airport to carry an additional 27 million passengers a year increasing to 30 million the following year when phase 2 is completed. It will make Heathrow the worlds busiest airport carrying a total of 90 million passengers.As a result of the opening of the terminal an extra 16,500 jobs will be created giving a total of 84,500.

The new five storied terminal is be big enough to fit 50 football pitches and  hosts 150 shops and 25 restaurants, including the a designer Prada store and Tiffany boutique. A new railway system has been created and is situated in the basement of Concourse A, with the platforms for the Piccadilly line Tube and Heathrow Express. Further platforms have been created for future expansion. The terminal has been developed with state of the art transportation systems within the airport. Instead of the usual conveyor belts to guide passengers around the terminals, driverless pods carry travelers to various points within the terminal. The pods known as automated people mover(APM) are run by computer system along guideways so do not need any staff. After initial operational difficulties when the Heathrow's new Terminal 5 building opened the terminal is now working normally. Remaining flights that were due to move to Terminal 5 will now be moved in phased stages with the 1st phase taking place on the 5th June and a further two stages, one on the 17th September and the last one at the end of October. The decision to implement the changes in phased stages was to make sure that no disruption occurs during the summer period, Heathrow airports busiest time.
