ULEZ expansion - 29 August 2023

London's Ultra Low Emission Zone, or ULEZ, is expanding to encompass all of Greater London, including Heathrow Airport, from the 29 August 2023.


The initiative, implemented by Transport for London (TfL), is aimed at reducing air pollution in London, therefore all vehicles entering the airport must meet certain emissions standards in order to avoid paying a daily charge.


The daily charge for non-compliant vehicles is £12.50 for most vehicles, including cars, vans, and motorcycles.


The charge will be in addition to any other fees or charges associated with entering the airport. The charge only applies when a vehicle is driven within the ULEZ zone, and does not apply to stationary vehicles including when cars are parked at Heathrow.


Please note, if you have booked Meet & Greet or Valet Parking with a non-compliant vehicle, and have selected a different exit terminal to your entry terminal, you will be liable for payment of a ULEZ charge to transfer your vehicle to another terminal.

Key spots around Heathrow

Key spots around Heathrow

Heathrow Airport covers over 1,200 hectares of land – but where is everything located at the airport?

Central Terminal Area (CTA)

As the heart of the orginal terminal and airfield layout, the Central Terminal Area (CTA) has seen a lot of change in Heathrow’s 70 year history! Much of the £11bn spent on upgrading the airport since 2006 has been spent in this area.

Key points at Central Terminal Area

  1. The Control Tower: This is where NATS Air Traffic Controllers direct the flights in and out of the airport.

  2. T3: Terminal 3 is now the oldest terminal in operation at the airport – it’s been in use since 1955.

  3. T1: Closed in 2015, much of the Terminal 1 building and infrastructure still remains in place.

  4. Pier 20: This pier was opened in 2006 in response to the development of the Airbus A380 and the need for larger stands to accommodate it. As a result, it still remains a great place to view both A380’s and the southern runway.

  5. T2 A: Opened in 2014 by Her Majesty the Queen, the new Terminal sits on the site of the original Terminal 2 that was demolished.

  6. T2 B: A satellite terminal that provides additional stands for T2A.

Key locations near T4

  1. BA Concorde: While the last BA Concorde flights took place in 2003, one aircraft from their iconic fleet still remains parked next to BA maintenance facilities.

  2. Myrtle Avenue: It’s not an official sight, but amongst Av Geeks Myrtle Avenue is one of the most visited locations to view and photograph aircraft from.
