Good news for our Australian, New Zealander, Singaporean, Japanese, South Korean, Canadian and USA-based LUXE customers travelling to London.
You can now swipe your passports at the automated e-passport gates of all UK airports, including Heathrow, bypassing the slow queues of the manual immigration desks. This should be especially welcome for those wishing to beat the long morning queues at London's busy Heathrow hub.
No special advance registration is needed to use the e-passport gates at UK airports, as well as the Eurostar rail terminals at St Pancras and Ebbsfleet International.
The UK is also scrapping landing cards for all passengers; not just for those arriving through the e-passport gates.
