Coronavirus update

Face coverings are mandatory at the airport and we encourage everyone to wear one at all times, unless they’re exempt. Passengers can purchase face coverings at several retailers at the airport including Boots and WHSmith. 


The safety of both passengers and colleagues has always been Heathrow’s number one priority. The airport has several COVID-secure measures in place to make sure everyone has a safe journey including: 


- Enhance cleaning regimes including Hygiene Technicians, UV robots and other anti-viral technologies to ensure continuous disinfection across terminals

- Dedicated COVID marshals to enforce social distancing

- 600 hand sanitiser stations 


Due to the emergence of a new Coronavirus variant, the UK Government have advised that fully vaccinated passengers arriving into England must:


Take a PCR test no later than 2 days after their arrival.

- Self isolate until they receive their result.

- If a passenger tests positive, they must isolate for 10 days.

- If a passenger tests negative, they can leave self isolation.


Passengers arriving from a country on the red list must book a managed quarantine hotel.


Passengers who are not fully vaccinated must continue to follow separate guidance.


As countries may change their entry requirements, we advise customers to check the UK Government website for up to date information.

    Watch 100 people in wheelchairs pull a Boeing jet into the record books



    Here’s the moment 100 people in wheelchairs hauled a 130-tonne airliner for 100 metres – earning themselves a Guinness World Record and helping to raise more than £16,000 for charity.

    The team members – who included security officers, volunteers and operational staff – pulled a British Airways Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner along the airfield at Heathrow entirely under their own power.

    Event organiser Andy Knight said: “It was much harder than I thought it was going to be. To begin with we got the aircraft moving pretty easily. But about halfway in I was really starting to feel the burn.”

    The long-haul jet weighs in at 126.7 tonnes, meaning the team smashed the previous record – a 67-tonne C-130 Hercules, pulled by a team in Belgium in 2011.

    The Wheels4Wings event was organised by Heathrow and British Airways in partnership with Aerobility, a charity which helps people with disabilities take part in aviation. It offers a range of services, from ground-based activities all the way through to supporting flyers to achieve their Private Pilot’s Licence.

    You can still support the event by donating to Aerobility until 8th December 2018, using the link below.
