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.

  • Northwest Territories

    Northwest Territories travel guide

    Overview

    The vast Northwest Territories of Canada cover more than 386,000 square miles (one million sq km) north of the 60th Parallel, extending far above the Arctic Circle. Inside this icy space are two out of the five largest lakes in North America: Great Bear Lake and Great Slave Lake, as well as some incredible mountain ranges and the ruggedly beautiful Nahanni National Park.

    Very few people inhabit this immense territory, with the Territories' largest city being the capital of Yellowknife and its population of less than 20,000. However, there are thousands of wolves, bison, bears, and caribou on the stark arctic plains and plenty of whales visible off the coasts of the numerous islands.

    This is the land of the long summer days of the Midnight Sun, and the winter phenomenon of the Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis) in the night sky between late August and January. Adventurous visitors are drawn to this land for canoeing, hiking, snowmobiling, skiing, and dog sledding, as well as for the unique natural beauty and legendary wildlife. It is a harsh region, but very rewarding for keen outdoorsmen and those wanting to experience the Arctic.

    English Pronounciation

    The climate of the Northwest Territories is diverse, which is not surprising when one considers that the province occupies a large portion of land. The southern part of the province is more temperate, with mild, long summer days and short, very cold winter days.

    The northern part of the province experiences arctic and subarctic conditions in winter and temperatures are far more extreme. Temperatures at Yellowknife reach a maximum average of about 68°F (20°C) in July and a minimum average of about -26°F (-32°C) in January. July and August are the wettest months.
