Minimum Time Before LHR T2 Flight

Tue Aug 22, 2006 6:29 pm

Anybody travelling in the last few days have any good advice for a minimum time to be at the airport before a flight out of LHR T2? Normally not much of an issue, I have 4-5 hours to spare, but this time I am going to be very, very strapped for time and likely will only be able to be there 2 hours before. Thanks in advance.

Hi YEGer!

According to BAA 2 hours in advance for short haul
3 hours in advance for longhaul
Remember no gels/liquids and only a small cabin bag

On a separate but related note, can anyone tell me if transfers have been affected? I'll be arriving at terminal 3 on a flight next month, and connecting to a flight in terminal 1.

Hello, first ever post!

Travelled LHRFRA last Tuesday evening - no problem at all at that time of day - 2 hours was more than queue at LH check in, hardly any queue through security
