Heathrow Airport reintroduces Fast Track security

Heathrow Airport has announced the reopening of its Fast Track Security service for all passengers starting 1 June, just in time for what is expected to be its busiest summer ever.

With over 30 million passengers anticipated between June and September, this service will facilitate a smooth start to journeys across all Heathrow terminals.

Available daily from 06:00 to 22:00, Fast Track Security enables passengers to breeze through security checks, allowing more time to shop, dine and relax before their flights.

The service, which costs £12.50 per person and travellers can select a one-hour window for security clearance.

Fast Track is already included for those with a business first Heathrow Express ticket, eligible frequent flyer cardholders or passengers travelling in premium cabins.

Ross Baker, Chief Customer Officer at Heathrow Airport, commented,

We’re thrilled to bring back our Fast Track Security booking service for all passengers ahead of the summer getaway. Fast Track offers a premium security experience, cutting down queue times, getting journeys off to smooth starts and giving passengers extra peace of mind ahead of their trips.

Fast Track Security is part of Heathrow’s broader commitment to enhancing the passenger experience. In the first quarter of the year, almost 99% of passengers waited less than 10 minutes for security clearance, underscoring the airport’s efficiency.

In addition to Fast Track Security, Heathrow offers several airport lounges for passengers to relax before departure. To ensure a hassle-free experience, Heathrow advises passengers to check-in online, wear comfortable clothing, keep travel documents easily accessible, and fully charge electronic devices.

For long-haul flights, arriving at least three hours before departure is recommended, while two hours is sufficient for domestic and European flights.
