Is 70 minutes enough time to connect between Heathrow terminals 1 & 5?
We’re planning on flying with BA from Edinburgh to Rome, via Heathrow. We need to be in Rome as early as possible and can’t fly a day earlier due to other commitments.
So my questions are really:
1) Will BA transfer the luggage between the flights within 70min? It will be a through ticket we will purchase.
2) I assume, if they transfer the luggage for us, we don’t have to go to the check-in desk at terminal 5?
3) Can you actually get between the two terminals and through security in 70min or less? I’m a BA Silver card holder so I can use the fast track security line. It will be a Saturday morning on the first weekend of July if that makes a difference.
