Stow acquired the land next to Pod 1 & 2 (Swissport) with the benefit of planning consent in 2004 and developed a third Pod (Hetherington House), the HQ for British Mediterranean Airways. Hetherington House, now let to British Airways, is located on Bedfont Road, directly opposite the Beacon Road roundabout (Gate 24 Heathrow Airport). The premises are in close proximity to the Cargo terminal, Terminal 4 and Terminal 5.
