Passengers travelling back to the UK from some European airports may experience longer waiting times due to extra security checks at Passport Immigration for both arrivals and departures on passengers from countries outside the 26-nation Schengen border-free zone, which includes Britain. Huge queues have been reported at passport controls across Spain, Portugal, France, Italy and Holland. We advise departing customers to allow extra time as they may experience longer queues especially at this busy time of the year.
