Clearing Customs on arrival at Heathrow

Will be arriving 7:30 AM on a Friday at Heathrow from Atlanta. What is the average time to deplane and clear customs?


  • Hello Bob28,

    That's a tough question...

    Once landing, there may also be delays until the plane actually parks. and deplane can be anywhere from 15 to 30 minutes Then customs, sometimes it is only 20 minutes...... but you need to plan on an hour if not a UK citizen.

    Please note that there is not a definitive answer.

    Hope this helps,
  • Thanks Emily. That helps. We're arriving a few days early and will be travelling by train to Nottingham before returning to London to begin our tour. Wanted to see what we need to prepare for.
