Unite Union has confirmed a strike among two groups of Heathrow security officers for 31 March – 9 April 2023.

Heathrow airport will remain open and operational, but the strikes may affect the journeys of some passengers planning to travel during this period.

As such, please be patient and anticipate longer wait times at Heathrow Airport.

Here are some things you can do for a smoother airport journey

  • Arrive to Airport on time – To avoid crowding at the airport, for international flights, please ensure that you only arrive at the airport three hours before your schedule departure and not earlier.
  • Hand Luggage Policy – Each passengers are allowed one hand luggage no larger than 56cm x 45cm x 25cm (22in x 18in x 19in) + one handbag or laptop bag.
  • Observe the liquids rule – Liquids may only be carried in containers holding 100ml or less, and must be carried in a single transparent and resealable bag (no larger than 20cm x 20cm).  At security control, place the bag in the tray with your other items.
