As we know, enhanced security measures mean that checking in can take longer than it used to. It is advised that you arrive at the airport in plenty of time:
This service is available to all travellers for the small cost of £5 per person when booked in advance. It offers rapid routing through security clearance and leads you through to the Departure lounge.
