Heathrow at night

We arrive at terminal 5 at aprox 04.15 for our 06.30 flight. It seems there is nowhere open for coffee in departures untill 05.30 however there seems to be Costa in arrivals 24hrs. Departures to arrivals (& back) at other airports we have used is usually easy to do is this the case at T5 at this hour.

thanks

There's no problem getting between arrivals and departures areas - it's a walk up or down a flight of stairs, escalator or lift

Arrivals is on the ground floor, departures on 1st and it's easy by lift between the two. It's quite a few flights of stairs between the two so wouldn't reommend unless feeling fit, which I doubt you will be at 04:30!

The self serve check in kiosks at T5 are switched on at 0445, and the bag drop desks will be staffed and ready to go from 0500. Although early mornings can be busy at T5, you really don't need to get to the terminal building at 0415 as there won't be much you can do before then to speed the check in process.

Thanks for that great bit of info. I assumed desks would be open at 04.20 for a 06.20 departure!

You will be amazed how many places are still open even if they claim not to be on the website. By the time you have checked in and got through security there will be plenty of options.

Have a good flight.
