Heathrow Terminal 5 Station

Zone 6 Tube station on the Piccadilly Line. The station is located inside Heathrow Airport itself; it opened on 27 March 2008.

Not all Piccadilly Line trains call here; the service splits just after Hatton Cross, with some trains (indicated "to Heathrow Terminal 5") continuing on through Terminals 1/2/3 to Terminal 5, and others (indicated "to Heathrow Terminals 1, 2, and 3") going to Terminal 4 then looping round to Terminals 1/2/3 and then returning to Central London (see this diagram on Wikipedia). Passengers for Terminal 5 should either take a train indicated "to Terminal 5" in the first place, or change at Hatton Cross. (Note that at least as of early 2008, announcements on the train suggest changing at Hounslow West; this is also a perfectly acceptable place to change, but Hatton Cross is closer to the airport, and there are buses from there to the airport in the case of service failure.)

The Heathrow Express service from Paddington also terminates here. According to Wikipedia, passengers transferring between Terminals 1/2/3 and Terminal 5 can use the Heathrow Express service free of charge.
