  • Terminal 3 to Terminal 2

    Transferring from T3 to T2. Separate airlines, separate tickets. Traveling from USA to Spain with stop-over at LHR. Carry-on from arriving flight, but will need to check a bag for departing flight. I have 2 1/2 hrs between flights. Will this be enough time? Thx!

    Flying BA from USA, landing Terminal 5 and then leaving 2 hours later from Terminal 1 to Spain. All on one ticket with bags checked thru. Do I have to go thru customs on landing LHR or can I go directly to Terminal 1? Is 2 hours sufficient to make this transit?

     

    You should be able to take a shuttle bus directly to Terminal 1. You should have enough time.

    AA flight #46 ORD to LHR arriving @ 9:05. TP flight #363 LHR to LIS departing @ 11:55 (separate tickets). Transferring from T3 to T2. Is this enough time with checked baggage?

     

    I believe it will be difficult but I won't say it's completely impossible. I personally wouldn't try it.

    Flying from O'Hare to Stockholm with a connection at Heathrow. Chicago flight lands at terminal 3, Stockholm flight departs from terminal 5. Connection time is 2:20. Same reservation, US Passport. Do I collect any checked bag and re-check or does the bag go straight through? Is 2:20 enough time with a checked bag? or should I do only carry-on (and practice sprinting)?

     

    Your bags will go straight through and you can take a shuttle between terminals. you should have enough time.

    If I have no checked baggage, but a connecting flight ticketed on another carrier, can I use "purple" transit path and connecting bus?

     

    Sorry, arriving from SFO on Virgin Atlantic, flying BA to Rome

    I have a BA flight from Rome (fiumicino) to Glasgow International. I'm going through LHR first and I have 1 hour 45 minutes wait before the next flight. All within terminal 5. do I have penty of time to make the flight?

     

    Yes, that should be plenty of time.

     

    ZAP - you seem to be the authority on these questions - thank you for your insight. So hoping to get some more of it! I' connecting LHR to FCO, travelling on two separate tickets. I arrive from SFO on VA in Terminal 3, and depart 2:20 hrs later on BA out of terminal 5. I am not checking baggage. My question is can I follow the p "purple" path and bus direct to terminal 5 and avoid immigration? Thanks, Sam

    Taking a flight from ORD to LHR (Business Class) arriving at 9:05 am (AA046). I believe we will arrive in Terminal 3. We are traveling on a US passport. Then taking a flight from LHR to LIS on TAP Portugal airlines at 11:55 am. I believe they fly out of Terminal 2. Is 2 hr. 50 min. enough time to collect bags from terminal 3 and re-check them in terminal 2? Also, do you know what the process is (customs, immigration) that we will need to go through? Thank you!

     

    I have a flight the same to this one described. Would this be enough time to make the connection? T3 to T2 in just under 3 hrs.

     

    Hi ZAP I'd appreciate any input on this. Thank you!

     

    I'm in the same boat. I need to collect and re-check luggage in 2hrs 40 mins bwteen term 3 to term 2. Is this possible?

    Hi 3 of us taking BA from San Diego - arrive at LHR at 1505 on 6/29. We want to go to Naples on the same date - 6/29. There is a Lufthansa flight at 1750 from Terminal 2. We are flying 1st/business. Will this be enought time to collect bags, go to terminal 2 and make the 1750 flight to Naples. We all have Global Entry (if that means anything). Thank you.

     

    That's barely enough time if everything goes smoothly.

While on separate tickets, DL and AF have through-check baggage arrangement - so all set there. What other steps/stops/security will I have to go through - and is 2hrs20min enough time?

    I am flying from CPH-LHR on SAS with 1:30 layover onward to JNB on South African all within T2. Is the layover sufficient? Also, I am an American, do I need a UK Transit Visa? Thanks in advance.

     

    American citizens never need a visa to visit or transit the UK. You should have enough time.

    Arriving on Direct Air Canada to LHR how much time needed to connect with checked baggage to BA to Glasgow? Separate reservations.

     

    I recommend at least 3 hours between flights.

    Do I pass through security again or just passport control to my connecting flight. I don't want to rearrange my liquids if they go through another check at Heathrow. Arrival and departure flights are in terminal 5

     

    You will go through neither passport control or security.

    I'm flying in from the US to Heathrow before connecting to Manchester. Do I have to collect my bags and recheck them at Heathrow? I only have about an hour inbetween flights. I'm concerned if I have to go throw customs at Heathrow that I won't have enough time. Thanks Jennifer

     

    No, you don't have to do anything with your bags in Heathrow. You will just go through passport control. You should have enough time.

    I will arrive from Singapore in T2 at 1540pm and thinking on hopping on a flight to Paris via Air France in T4 at 1745pm. Both are on separate reservation and I assume I will need to recheck my bags. Is there any chance that I can make it on this connection? Thanks

     

    I think you would barely have a chance if you hurry.
