Covid-19: Red list arrivals terminal opens at Heathrow Airport

From 04:00 BST, travellers arriving on direct flights from "Red list" nations will transit through Terminal Three. There has been concern at reports that travellers from red list areas were mixing with other passengers in immigration halls, where they could be waiting for several hours on occasion. "As we reopen international travel safely, we will maintain 100% health checks at the border and the new dedicated terminal at Heathrow for arrivals from red list countries will enable passengers to be processed as safely and as efficiently as possible, before being transferred to a managed quarantine facility," she said. Before red list passengers make their way to the hotels for their 10 days of isolation, they were waiting in the same arrivals hall as passengers from other lower risk countries, sometimes for hours at a time. International travel is likely to remain very different for a while, as Heathrow anticipates that a red list terminal will be needed for some time.
