The World’s Transit Point

Handling Some 200,000 Passengers A Day, Heathrow Airport Is Not Only Europe’s Largest But One Of The World’s Largest And Busiest Transit Points. You May Need A Few Clues To Help You Navigate This Airport.

You have two alternatives for transportation into the city: Providing “Business Class” transport, Heathrow Express leaves every quarter hour and gets to Paddington Station in central London in approximately 15 minutes. The London Underground will take you to central London via the Piccadilly Line in about  55 minutes.

If you have to spend time time at Heathrow, you can visit the Terminal 5 Expo Gallery. Located on the check-in level of Terminal 5, the gallery hosts mainly popular culture exhibitions. Since England is hosting the Olympics this year, you will be able to see and buy works based on this theme.
   
The London Metro is expected to be crowded this summer on account of the Olympics. A better choice may be to use Heathrow’s express, especially during the festivals.

“Journey Team” at Heathrow provide support and information services as you shop. Plus there are Turkish-speaking representatives at Terminal 3.

A volunteer team of “Travel Ambassadors” in purple uniforms will be on hand in all terminals 24/7. You can consult them in case of any problems.

Duty free shopping is available both before and after airport security screening.
   
On long journeys especially, you may want to avoid the hassle of taking baby food through airport security screening. In this case, parents may order the baby food of their choice over the internet and pick it up ready and appropriately packaged after security screening in the departure lounge.
   
In case of a medical emergency, you can call for help by dialing 222 on any internal phone.

Like many big airports, Heathrow also offers passengers the possibility of a shower for a fee. The shower areas are located in Terminals 3 and 4 after airport security.
