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)

  • Ski Scandinavia with SAS to Sälen
    Heathrow

    SAS will start flying to Scandinavian Mountains Airport on 28 December 2019, just one week after the opening of this state-of-the-art terminal. Also known as Sälen Airport, it is perfectly located within less than an hour from the vast ski areas of Sälen in Sweden or Trysil in Norway.

    The two resorts combined have over 250 slopes and is ideal for skiers and boarders alike. Not to mention miles and miles of cross-country runs, which this part of the world is renowned for.

    Here is the low-down on the two areas:

    Sälen

    Sälen in the Dalarna region is one of Sweden’s best-loved resorts, consisting of six ski areas: Lindvallen, Högfjället, Tandådalen, Hundfjället, Stöten and Kläppen. Here there are over 100 slopes in all directions and an extensive snow system that guarantees great skiing all season long.

    With a Sälen SkiPass you can connect to over 100 pristine slopes by chair and button lifts or even the free ski bus. 

    Sälen has got something for all ages with a water park, indoor surfing, a cinema, dog sled tours, snowmobile safaris and some cosy restaurants serving Scandinavian fair.

    Trysil

    Trysil is 200kms north of Oslo in Norway. The ski resort is built on the slopes of the 1,132-metre-high Trysilfjellet mountain. This is a paradise for the advanced skier, and you can carve your way around 71 km of well-prepared slopes which twist and turn around the mountain. There are also plenty of nursery slopes for the absolute beginner so it will suit all levels and ages.

    The skiing is so good here, don’t be surprised if you run into (but not literally) global alpine stars on the slopes. Many national teams from different countries use this as their World Cup training base.

    The lifts here are super-modern and come with heated seats. 

    Accommodation here consists of modern, luxury hotels and fully equipped log cabins which beautifully blending in to the slopes. For lovers of luxury, Trysil has two Radisson Blu hotels located right at the foot of the ski slopes. 

    Undecided? 

    If you are can’t chose between the two, you can enjoy both as the two resorts are just a short hop across the border from each other.

    SAS is already taking booking right up to Easter week in mid-April so why not book now on flights that leave every Saturday at 06:40 from Heathrow and you can return you back home at 12:55.
