The changes announced today by the UK and US governments are not expected to have any impact on security procedures for those departing from Heathrow.

Passengers travelling to the UK from Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan, Egypt, Tunisia, and Saudi Arabia are advised to contact their airline with queries about any additional security measures they may experience at airports in those countries. For more details, please visit the UK Government’s website.
