All about security fast-track lanes and how to book your place
What are express / fast-track lanes: Put simply, they’re your ticket to beat the queues by using a lane reserved for passengers who are prepared to pay a little extra to dodge hold ups at security.
How do they work: Some airports require you book fast-track tickets before you fly, while others will let you pay on the day. It’s often cheaper to purchace before departure day.
How much time will I save: Most airports limit tickets for individual departure times, so queues will always be kept to a minimum. The exact waiting time will vary, but many airports aim to get paying passengers to security within five minutes.
How much does it cost: Expect to pay from £3 – £12.50 depending on airport and whether you pre-book. Use the links below to find out how much your airport charges.
My airport isn’t on the list: Sorry – express lanes are not available at all facilities. Grab a coffee and think of the good times to come, instead.
