Pre-book Fast Track security

We are thrilled to announce that Fast Track security is back, and you can now pre-book to get your journey off to a swift start by sailing through security. It costs £12.50 per person, and you can secure your spot up until midday, the day before you travel. 

Take the Fast Track

  • Book in advance

    Select from the available 1-hour windows; this should be no less than 2 hours before your flight.

  • Go to the Fast Track zone

    Once checked in head to the Fast Track security entrance in your terminal.

  • Show your booking

    You will have received an email containing your booking confirmation. Show this and your boarding card to the officer at the desk, and they will let you into Fast Track.

Fast Track security FAQs

Yes, there are no flight or cabin restrictions in place, although some passengers may already be eligible to use Fast Track security due to their class of travel.  Please check with your airline or visit our Fast Track included page for more details. 

The hours of operation of Fast Track security are from 06:00 until 22:00. Hourly windows are available starting with the first window being available between 06:00-07:00 and the last window from 21:00-22:00, subject to operational requirements and availability.

If your flight is cancelled, you can amend your booking once you have received details of your new flight, subject to availability.  Details of how to do this can be found in your confirmation email.

If you decide not to reschedule your booking and your Fast Track security booking has not been used, Heathrow will issue you with a refund, upon receiving from you valid proof of flight cancellation, within 30 days of the date of your cancelled flight.

Important information: 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 Fast Track Security 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 Fast Track Security is granted through a pre-booked time slot. Whilst Heathrow will endeavour to ensure that all passengers are able to access Fast Track, 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 both an airline ticket and a Fast Track ticket if they want to pass through Fast Track security.
