Travelling through Heathrow this Christmas

We’re looking forward to welcoming you and your loved ones to the airport this Christmas and working hard to make sure your trip runs as smoothly as possible. To help with this process, please be aware of the following:

 

Consider your arrival time
Allow three hours to check-in before a long-haul flight and two hours to check-in before a short-haul flight – and make sure all your travel documents are up-to-date. Please don't turn up significantly early for your flight as this can cause unnecessary congestion in the airport and you may not be able to check in your bags. You can monitor current security waiting times using the Heathrow app and on your flight detail page.

 

Remove liquids from hand luggage
You can’t take liquids with a capacity over 100ml through security. Liquids under 100ml should be removed from your hand luggage and placed in a single transparent, re-sealable plastic bag of not more than one litre capacity. Each bag must be able to close properly with all the items inside. These bags are available free-of-charge before security. Passengers are strictly limited to one bag of liquids per person.

(“Liquids” includes all drinks and syrups; creams, lotions, oils, perfumes; sprays, shaving foam, deodorants, gels and pastes; soups, jams, preserves, chutneys – and snow globes)

    The Crown Rivers Wetherspoon

    J D Wetherspoon has cracked the formula for a busy pub: there are more than a dozen beers on tap, double-quick service and solid pub grub. At this bustling watering hole, near gates A1–A7, you can use the app to order and pay for food and drinks from your table. The menu features British pub classics (like bangers and mash and fish and chips), as well as lighter bites, such as paninis and small plates. Many stick to the burger menu or the freshly baked pizzas – the Calorie counts for each dish will help health-conscious diners.
