Rail disruption - 30 September & 1, 4, 6 October 2023

Due to planned engineering works and industrial action, there will be disruption to rail and London Underground services between Heathrow and Central London between Saturday 30 September and Friday 6 October 2023.


Over this period, there will be disruption to Heathrow Express and Piccadilly line services. The Elizabeth line will be operating as normal, and inter-terminal transfer services between all terminals will also be completed by these services.


Passengers should plan their journeys before travelling, and allow for additional time where necessary as services will be busier than normal.

ULEZ expansion - 29 August 2023

London's Ultra Low Emission Zone, or ULEZ, is expanding to encompass all of Greater London, including Heathrow Airport, from the 29 August 2023.


The initiative, implemented by Transport for London (TfL), is aimed at reducing air pollution in London, therefore all vehicles entering the airport must meet certain emissions standards in order to avoid paying a daily charge.


The daily charge for non-compliant vehicles is £12.50 for most vehicles, including cars, vans, and motorcycles.


The charge will be in addition to any other fees or charges associated with entering the airport. The charge only applies when a vehicle is driven within the ULEZ zone, and does not apply to stationary vehicles including when cars are parked at Heathrow.


Please note, if you have booked Meet & Greet or Valet Parking with a non-compliant vehicle, and have selected a different exit terminal to your entry terminal, you will be liable for payment of a ULEZ charge to transfer your vehicle to another terminal.

Build up! Tackling plastic bags

Addressing plastic bags in security.

Build up! Tackling plastic bags
By Heathrow
As part of our 2018 innovation prize competition, the Heathrow Security team wanted to find solutions to the plastic bags that are currently required for passengers to take liquids, aerosols and gels into the aircraft cabin. We commonly refer to them as LAG bags.​

Like so many people, the Security team are concerned about the potential for plastics to cause harm to nature and wildlife after they are discarded. However the bags play a very important role and are required by law. ​

Is there a way to quickly and radically reduce the impact of LAG bags? This question found a way forward through the BuildUp! programme run by Ferrovial. BuildUp! took the challenge to startups across Europe through an open competition.

Build Up! 2nd Edition – Ferrovial’s Open Call for Startups

The winning startup – Good Bag – hail from the Austrian capital, Vienna. They will be implementing their idea at Heathrow over the next few months. Check back here for updates.​
