Heathrow Airport has provided updated advice to those who wish to travel abroad after the government announced that Corona virus tier 4 restrictions have been imposed in many parts of the South East.
Following Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s announcement last night, new restrictions have been imposed on London and surrounding areas, including Berkshire and Buckinghamshire.
In the UK itself, along with various travel restrictions, people living under Tier 4 restrictions are now banned from traveling abroad.
People in Tier 4 have very few reasons to catch flights, including work.
The latest guideline on Heathrow Airport’s website says: “Following the advice of the UK Government on 19 December 2020, if you are in a Tier 4 area, you are not allowed to travel without a permit. Should be considered.
“Passengers should not plan unnecessary time at the airport, but should be allowed 2 hours before departure and 3 hours for short flights. If you have any concerns or questions about your flight, please contact your airline who can provide the most up-to-date advice.
