As previously announced, SkyTeam's move to Terminal 4 will take effect over the next 12 months. In phase one, at the end of March 2008 , the U.S. carriers (Continental Airlines, Delta Air Lines and Northwest Airlines) will join KLM Royal Dutch Airlines and Kenya Airways, who already operate out of Terminal 4. In the spring of 2009, the remaining SkyTeam carriers operating out of Heathrow (Aeroflot, Air France , Alitalia, CSA and Korean Air) will relocate. BAA anticipates approximately 10 million passengers* will be served out of Terminal 4 once all airline moves are complete and the ten SkyTeam alliance carriers are operating out of the co-location.
SkyTeam is the global airline alliance partnering eleven members, including Aeroflot, Aeromexico, Air France , Alitalia, China Southern Airlines, Continental Airlines, Czech Airlines, Delta Air Lines, KLM Royal Dutch Airlines , Korean Air and Northwest Airlines, and three Associate Airlines: Air Europa ( Spain ), Copa Airlines ( Panama ) and Kenya Airways. Through one of the world's most extensive hub networks, SkyTeam offers its 428 million annual passengers a worldwide system of 16,400 daily flights covering 841 destinations in 162 countries. www.skyteam.com.
