    Security measures for passengers travelling to the USA have been stepped up at all UK Airports. All airlines have their own advice so it is essential that you check your airline’s website before travel as the information may change.

    General advice is to arrive an extra hour prior to your flight, this now means 4 hours before departure.  This is due to extra security screening procedures that are in place.

    All Passengers travelling to the USA will only be allowed 1 piece of carry on baggage with dimensions not to exceed 23 x 36 x 56cm, (approx 9 x 14 x 22 inches) and 13lb/6kg in weight, and should only contain the items you need during the flight.

     Passengers are advised that during flight, they will be asked to follow flight crew instructions, such as stowing personal items, turning off electronic equipment and remaining seated during certain portions of the flight.

     Please remember that Since 12th January 2009, UK Travellers to the US under the Visa Waiver Programme (VWP), which allows most British Citizen passport holders to visit for up to 90 days without a visa, have required an authorisation via the Electronic System for Travel Authorisation (ESTA) prior to boarding a carrier to travel by air or sea to the US.  Travellers must register for authorisation online through the ESTA website at least 72 hours prior to travel at  https://esta.cbp.dhs.gov
