The special terminal, where passengers from “high risk” countries will land, is currently housed in Terminal Three.
In a tweet, Paul Charles, CEO of the PC Agency, wrote: “Sadly the @HeathrowAirport ‘red list’ terminal, initially paid for by the #Government, may be needed for a while as vaccine rollouts are at a different pace worldwide.”
Speaking on BBC News, the travel expert added: “Indeed, Heathrow is saying it might be needed for some time and clearly because of the vaccine roll-out not being at the same pace globally then it is likely that there will be some red list countries sadly for some time.”
However, Mr Charles pointed out that the airport looking to move the red list terminal from Terminal Three to Terminal Four could be a “good sign” for hopeful holidaymakers.
