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)

    No matter what kind of holiday you’re after, you can do it all in captivating Kenya…

    See the big five at the Masai Mara

    Kenya is a hotbed of roving wildlife and none of its wide-open savannah plains are more spectacular than the large game reserve of the Masai Mara.

    If you're lucky you’ll bear witness to all the big five African animals here: the lion, leopard, rhinoceros, elephant and cape buffalo.

    You can board twice-daily game drives with experienced rangers, explore on foot with guided walks, take to the skies in a hot air balloon, mix with the locals in a village tour, go on a horseback tour and even celebrate the sunset with Maasai warriors.

    And if you go at the right time of the year (July or November) you might even see the incredible wildebeest migrations from the nearby Serengeti plains.

    Nature in full majestic flow.

    While away the days on Diani beach

    One of the best beach destinations in the whole of Africa, if not the best, Diani really is the epitome of a tropical paradise with glorious white sands and crystal-clear blue waters that are custom-designed for sunshine loafing and best-in-class snorkelling. 

    Kenya is one of the only places in the world where you’ll be able to see reef sharks and swim with the endangered Green and Hawksbill turtles, so a waterproof camera is a must.

    Kayaking, windsurfing, kitesurfing, paddleboarding and scuba-diving are also available, as are safaris and trips into local villages.

    Diani has everything: it’s the perfect base to begin your African adventure or a heavenly retreat after you finish your safari.
