    • 7 hour Layover at Heathrow- meeting someone at the Airport

      by ashpw Online Now Apr 22, 2015 at 9:14 AM

      We are traveling from Canada and we have a 7 hours transit before leaving to Sri Lanka. We will be arriving at T5 and next  flight will be from T3. I need to meet my brother who lives in London during the layover. Since we are traveling with Canadian passports i guess we dont need visa to enter UK.

      Since we are not planning to go any where else, I can ask him to come to the air port but im not sure to which terminal. If I take the free bus service from T5 to T3, will I be able to go through the immigration at T3 and meet my brother at the air port . Or should I meet him at the terminal 5 ? He will not be traveling so he cant come through the security checking.

    • 1 hour and 5 minutes connection in LHR

      by mickeymuthu Online Now Apr 1, 2015 at 8:33 AM

      Air canada issued me a ticket which I have 24 hours left to cancel without a penalty. Travelling by Air Canada in terminal 2 and the next flight is Singapore airlines in terminal 2 as well. I am very concerned because the time of transit in LHR is exactly 1 hour and 05 minutes. Should I be good to make the connection on time?

      The baggage is through from Canada to India. Also i have another connection in Singapore to Madras for another 1 hour 45 minutes.

      I will be flying on a weekend.

      You folks please advise if this transit in london will work since both the planes are in Terminal 2.

    • Leaving Schangen area?

      by oscarvajal Online Now Apr 22, 2015 at 1:28 PM

      We are Colombian citizens with US permanent resident cards. We have Schengen visas Type C (with one single entry).
      We initially entered the Schengen area through Stockholm; then, we visited Berlin, and Amsterdam.
      Flying from Amsterdam to Paris, we had to stop in Heathrow Terminal 5 for 40 minutes, and the BA's person stated that we didn't need a transit visa.
      Once in Paris, we were refused entry on the basis that we had left the Schengen area when landing in Heathrow Terminal 5 even if we didn't left the terminal and our passports were stamped by the UK.

    • Transferring between T2 and T5

      by sarahcj Online Now Jan 25, 2015 at 1:26 PM

      My friend is arriving at T2 (from Frankfurt) and departing for the US from T5 - different airlines and not through ticketed, as far as I can tell. So she's going to have to pick up her luggage, transfer terminals and check in. She only has two and a half hours to do so. And she's a US citizen, so presumably might be held up at immigration.
      Is this an impossible schedule? As she's transiting the airport, is there some simpler quicker way to do this than going through immigration and customs as a normal arriving passenger would, before she transfers terminals?

      Hi, I am a Philippine passport holder traveling to Heathrow airport, arriving at terminal 4 and with a connecting flight at terminal 5 to Toulouse, France. I am a Schengen Visa holder as well. I would just like to ask if I will still need a Direct Airside Transit Visa to transfer terminals even if I don't have baggage to claim upon arrival at terminal 4 since both bags are carry-ons. Tickets were booked separately though so I do not have a through-ticket. Thanks!

    • Transfer from T5 to T3

      by lelici Online Now Jan 14, 2015 at 12:52 AM

      Hi, we will leave from Dusseldorf with BA and arrive at T5 at 7.50AM.
      We have to transfer to T3 to catch our flight to Dallas which leaves at 9.30 AM: also BA but operated by American Airlines.
      When we booked this flight it said on the website this flight was operated by BA aswell, so we thought we could stay in T5, and 1 hour 40 min would be plenty off time!
      However checking the BA website later we found out this flight is operated by AA, and we have to transfer to T3.
      I'm very worried we won't make this transfer.
      Would anyone be so kind to explain us, maybe step by step, what's the fastest way to go to T3?
      Do i realy need to worry, or is 1 hour 40 min enough time?
      Thank you for your time and help!

      Terminal 5 Connection Time - Is it enough?

      by manosbar Online Now Nov 21, 2014 at 12:55 AM

      Hello everyone,

      I am wondering whether 65 minutes are enough time to make a connection in Terminal 5. I will fly from ATHens to London Heathrow and then to Washington DC. That means that I won't have to pick up any luggage, but I will probably need to go to one of the shuttle buildings for my departure gate. However, I read that I have to be at my boarding gate 20 minutes before the flight!

      That leaves 45 minutes for me to get off the plane, security check, go to boarding gate! I have already started running!! Too worried! frown

      I'm looking at flying MEL-DUB then LHR-MEL and the cheapest option seems to be a return MEL-LHR with Qatar Airlines and then buying a separate LHR-DUB flight with Aer Lingus. I will be arriving in Terminal 4 at 12:25 and have to fly from Terminal 2 at 14:20. I was just wondering if that will leave me enough time to pick up my luggage, clear customs, check-in and make the Aer Lingus flight?
