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)

    Located between seven mountains and some breath-taking fjords, Norway’s second-largest city has way more to offer than you may have thought…

    Fløyen: One minute you're in town, six later you're up a mountain

    New visitors to Bergen can’t help but be drawn to the wonderfully colourful aspects of Bryggen, a 14th century Hanseatic wharf of both cultural and economic significance punctuated by romantic wooden buildings and a famously friendly fish market teeming with aquatic treasures.

    Your eye will naturally be drawn upwards, too. Known in Norway as the “city of the seven mountains”, Bergen has an abundant coastline on one side and a looming set of peaks to the other.

    The easiest to reach is Fløyen by a funicular, Fløibanen. It only takes 6 minutes to reach the very top – 320m above sea level – where you can enjoy the view, restaurant, cafe, shops and children’s play area. Or hike further into the mountains.

    Bergen is also home to several cruise companies all keen to show off the wonders of the famous Norwegian coastline. The Hurtigruten is one of the more extensive tours reaching the coast’s northernmost point and connecting 34 key communities along the way.

    And then there’s the aquarium, concert hall, KODE museum, Fantoft Stave Church, Old Bergen Museum and the Bergenhus Fortress to explore when you get back. In Bergen there really is something for everyone.
