Heathrow Airport passport queues reach 2.5 hours – BBC News

Delays at Heathrow Airport passport control left passengers queuing for up to two and a half hours last month, figures show.

On 30 of 31 days in July, the border force missed its target of a 45-minute wait or less for 95% of visitors from outside the European Economic Area.

Virgin Atlantic, which obtained the data, said passengers were “frustrated”.

The government said it would send 200 extra staff to Heathrow this summer.

According to the data, the longest immigration queues were on 6 July when travellers from outside the European Economic Area (EEA) – an area made up of 31 European countries – had to wait in line for up to two hours and 36 minutes.
