As always, we’re looking forward to welcoming you to the airport and we’re 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 times

Allow 3 hours to check-in before your flight and make sure all your travel documents are up-to-date. Please do not turn up significantly early for your flight though, as this can cause unnecessary congestion in the airport.

    Five tips to stay ahead of the game

    At peak times there will inevitably be more activity in the airport than usual. To keep your journey through Heathrow as seamless as possible, consider the following advice…


    1. Check travel and testing requirements

      Always double-check travel and testing requirements to and from your chosen destination before you leave for the airport. Heathrow offers a range of COVID-19 testing options should you need to book any tests before you travel.

    2. Download the Heathrow app

      The Heathrow app is your ideal travel companion. You can reserve parking, view maps of the terminal, pre-order food and receive live flight updates from wherever you are, all at the touch of a button.

    3. Keep all travel essentials handy

      Make sure your tickets and boarding pass, travel insurance, driving licence, currency and credit cards are safe but easily accessible. It’s also mindful to carry a charger for your smartphone and have your airline’s information at the ready.

    4. Remove liquids

      Remember, you can only take liquids in individual containers with a maximum capacity of 100ml on the plane. Each item should be removed from hand luggage and placed in a transparent, re-sealable plastic bag of not more than one litre capacity per passenger.

    5. Get set for security

      Before reaching security, it’s a good idea to remove your laptop, tablet or similar electronic device from your hand luggage to be inspected separately. Coats, jackets and belts should also be removed. 

    A £5 charge applies to vehicles dropping off passengers at the designated drop-off zones, located directly outside the terminals. Discounts and exemptions apply. Free drop-off is available at our Long Stay car parks.
