Hi all,

Reaching Hatton Cross from T1 is not a problem at LHR, but how can you go to runway 09L/R?

They predict Eastern winds (following a topic in av phot) which means that Runway 09R/L will be used for take off/landing.

How do you go to there, and which runway will be used for take off and which one for landing?

Thanks for your help.

09R is always used for t/o and 09L always for landings,Except Concorde which takes off from 09L
I think there are LT buses that go near there butt expect a good walk!!
the petrol staion on the perometer rd is used for 09R t/o and there is a field right underneath 09L for the landings, last time there (1 week ago) the grass was a high as an elephants eys!!!
I expect more people will give better info, but at least its a start for you

Silverfox how can you guarantee the runway usage, it is done by the direction of wind its always changing...

At the moment they are using the 27's - but it may change, get the bus from the central bus station and catch the bus to the visitors centre, you have to walk the rest of the way, don't know the bus numbers though.

Thx Silverfox!

LHR340: Bus 285 goes to the visitors centre. But aren't the 09 runways in the opposite direction?

There's a free airport bus, H30 or something... it goes to BA watreside and cargo terminals, then to Hatton Cross (from central bus station) and vice versa - it basically drives all the way around the airport

Both 09 runways are parrallel to each other, meaning it's a heck of a trek from one side to the other. Best you take LHR340's advice.

Sabena 690: 09 RWY's were also in use when I visited LHR last year with Turbotrent. It's no problem to reach them: just take the bus to the BA center in the neighbourhood (on the northwest side of LHR), and walk from there on to 09L. 09R is a bit further, but I think it's still easier to get off the bus at the BA center than at T4.

But, we know how to get there, it's no problem and it's free  Wink/being sarcastic
