Always check in early. We recommend getting to the airport 3 hours in advance of your flight for International flights, and 2 hours before for domestic flights.
At most UK airports, the restriction on only carrying one piece of hand luggage has been lifted. There are still some exceptions though and we would advise you to check on www.baa.com or with airline you are flying with for up to date information.
Only limited quantities of liquids may be carried in your hand baggage.
The following restrictions apply to all liquids, creams, gels, pastes and aerosols taken through security control:
Exceptions to the 100ml rule can be made for baby food or milk. However, you should only carry what you need for the flight, and you may be asked to taste these items at security control.
Exceptions may also be made for medicines. However, you may be asked to taste any liquid medicines, or to provide evidence (such as a doctor's letter) that you need them for your journey.
Sitting for a long period of time such as on a long haul flight, has been linked to cases of Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT). DVT can occur in anyone at any time although some individuals, such as those who have had recent surgery or have a history of blood clots in their family, may be at higher risk.
DVT may be avoided by periodically walking around the aircraft and exercising the leg muscles, drinking adequate fluids, wearing loose fitting clothing and avoiding alcohol and caffeine before and during the flight. Many airlines now include a section in their in-flight magazines on wellbeing, including exercises you can do whilst still seated. If you are concerned about the risk of DVT, we would recommend that you consult your GP for further advice.
