Important Change Of Check-In Time At London Heathrow.

From 30th October 2016 the minimum check-in time for British Airways long-haul flights at London Heathrow Airport will be 60 minutes prior to departure.

Check-in for short-haul flights will remain unchanged at 45 minutes.

British Airways – Important Update.

Please note that British Airways is in the process of standardising check-in and bag drop closure times at airports across its network.

The new standardised time for UK domestic and short haul customers to clear check in, and drop their bags, is up to 45 minutes before departure. Whilst the new standardised time for long haul customers to clear check in and drop their bags is up to one hour before departure.

Global Travel Management recommends that passengers allow plenty of time for check-in, or bag-drops, particularly during peak travel times. GTM customers can access either our itinerary management app, or the BA app, to assist them.

Lastly, GTM recommends that all travellers flying with British Airways ALWAYS check in online for their flight/s.
