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)

    At the epicentre of the Balaeric Riviera, Gecko is Formentera’s best-positioned hotel beach club with a chilled-out bossa nova vibe and a renewed focus on connection and wellbeing.

    Migjorn – the beautiful expanse of white sand, rugged dunes and turquoise seawater on the coast of Formentera – has been shaped by the laidback machinations of the Gecko Beach Club.

    Music is at the heart of the club’s concept: In-house DJs spin appropriately-Balaeric beats and the whole place has a lazy bossa nova vibe that befits lolloping in hammocks and sipping sharp cocktails in kooky beach cabanas.


    You can say hello to the day with an early morning yoga class, amble along the wooden boardwalk that lines Migjorn, hop on a moped to go further afield or on an SUP to cruise out into the Azure waters.

    Or simply dine from the alfresco terrace, gaze out to sea to let your worries fritter away.


    The nautical-inspired furnishings, sandblasted wooden tables and gentle atmosphere help the hotel blend seamlessly with its mesmerising oceanic surroundings. There’s nothing truly fancy on show – understated glamour is the order of the day – but there doesn’t need to be.

    At the Gecko Beach Club, luxury is a state of mind.



    Rome2Rio operate routes to Ibiza from Heathrow. You can take a short ferry ride to Formentera from there.
