I fear that this is a very simple question, but I have no experience of Heathrow or BA and I could not find an answer elsewhere.
I have a colleague who is arriving at LHR from HKG (with CX), and at once transferring to a domestic BA flight (LHR - EDI). Can someone kindly confirm that the situation is as follows:
- even with the increased security situation, check-in baggage can be checked in from HKG to the final destination (EDI)
- she will not need go through passport control at LHR, only at EDI
- she must however go through security at LHR, and must therefore follow the UK security rules for hand baggage (one hand carry only, no liquids, toilet items etc)
Thank you for your kind advice !
