Heathrow, terminal transfers?


Anyone know how to and how long it takes to transfer from T1 to T5 at Heathrow? Our luggage is thru checked.

The booking should allow a minimum of 90 minutes.

As you haven't given much information to go on I will give you the general Flight Connections link.

The 90 minutes wirewiper mentions as the official minimum assumes you will also have the boarding passes for the second flight. We might be able to help more if you could say which airports you are flying from/to and on which airline you're arriving. It's a safe bet you're leaving on BA or Iberia!

90 minutes is the recommended minimum but it is possible to do it in less time - I have on many occassions.

Arriving on Aer Lingus listen up for announcements just before or after landing, I've been on these flights where they tell the passengers transferring to wait because they will be bussed directly to their departure terminals. As I haven't been transferring I haven't experienced the transfer myself but it would I am sure be quicker than getting off the plane and following the standard Flight Connections route..
