    New to Terminal 3 – Pre-book your Security experience

    Be the first to pre-book a priority service in our Security trial, exclusively in Terminal 3 from Monday February 19 until Sunday March 4. Our Premier Security route aims to provide you with a more efficient and more convenient security experience.

    Book online to secure your place, as access is limited, and bookings must be made no later than 2 days before travel.

    How to enjoy your enhanced experience

    • Book a time-slot, approximately two hours before your flight is scheduled to depart.
    • On arrival at Heathrow Terminal 3, after check-in, proceed to the main security area where you will see the Premier Security sign.
    • Present your confirmation email and boarding card to the desk, where you will be prioritised through Security.

    Important information: All bookings are subject to availability. All passengers flying out of Heathrow Airport are subject to the same security procedures and regulations. Heathrow recommends that passengers ensure that they have allowed enough time for the usual security and x-ray screening. As a premium experience, customers who have purchased access to Premier Security in Terminal 3 will be given a priority service to ensure that waiting is kept to a minimum. However, we cannot guarantee a maximum or minimum queue length or time. Access to Heathrow’s Premier Security is granted through a pre-booked time slot. Whilst Heathrow will endeavour to ensure that all passengers are able to access Premier Security, access may be denied for latecomers. Please remember that it is the passenger's responsibility to ensure they arrive at the departure gate at the published boarding time as stated by the airline. Heathrow Airport is not responsible for any passengers who miss their flight because they did not allow enough time to go through the check-in and security process. Please note all passengers including infants and babies require a ticket if they want to pass through Premier security.
