London Heathrow Seeks Asian Hub Allure Via $4 Billion Revamp

London Heathrow airport is close to completing a 2.5 billion-pound ($4 billion) building project that seeks to boost service standards and repel the challenge of fast-growing rivals to a hub with little scope for more flights.

Heathrow aims to stop travelers switching to less crowded airports by creating a new terminal on the site of buildings dating from the 1950s, allowing it to bring carriers from Deutsche Lufthansa AG’s Star Alliance -- the world’s biggest airline grouping -- under a single roof for the first time.
