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)

    Famous for its captivating coastlines and breath-taking beaches, Greece does summer like no other and one of its truly hidden gems lies on the western side of Zakynthos, close to Anafotiria village. 
    Shipwreck Beach: More Hollywood than holiday

    Navagio Bay – also referred to as "Smugglers Cove" or “Shipwreck Beach” – has all the right ingredients: epic white cliffs, brilliantly blue waters, piercing white sands and a gorgeously rustic boat nestled at its cinematic centre.

    The boat – apparently being used to transport illegal cigarettes and hastily abandoned – was washed ashore in 1983 and now forms the focal point of one of the most photographed parts of the country.

    Tourists flock in numbers, but somehow it always feels remote and personal.

    To reach it, take one of the hourly boat trips from Porto Vromi. In just 30 minutes, you’ll be transported to one of the most stunning beaches in the world.

    The only niggling problem? You’ll never want to leave. 


    Want to ‘fly and flop’ to one of Europe’s most sumptuous summer locales? British Airways operates a number of short-haul routes to Greece and there are some really exciting deals to be had.
