The new Terminal 2 at London Heathrow will be officially named in the Queen's honour when it is opened next year.
The full title of the terminal, which is currently under construction, will be "Terminal 2: The Queen's Terminal."
John Holland-Kaye, the airport's development director said: "The Queen opened the original Terminal 2 more than half a century ago and we're delighted that Her Majesty has kindly agreed to give her name to the new Terminal 2.
"Everyone at Heathrow is extremely proud of our long association with The Queen and we know the new Terminal 2 will be a fitting continuation of that tradition."
The Queen opened the old Terminal 2 – then called the Europa Building – in 1955 just two years after her coronation.
Planners describe the new Terminal 2 as "similar in feel" to Terminal 5, which opened to much fanfare – as well as a series of public relations disasters – in 2008.
Terminal 2 is due to be completed in November this year, then submitted to several months of testing before its scheduled opening date of June 4, 2014.
