From 25th January 2017, British Airways flights departing London Gatwick will move to South Terminal.  The British Airways departures area is located in Zone A in Gatwick's South Terminal. Passengers must meet the following times, or you will not be allowed to travel:

Check-in closes 45 minutes before your flight departs for short-haul departures. If you have bags to check in, please take them to Bag Drop in Zone C.

Pass through security at least 35 minutes before your flight departs.

Be at the boarding gate at least 20 minutes before your flight departs. Please check how long it will take you to get to the gate. NB It's worth ensuring you have logged your contact details via Manage My Booking on ba.com as they will try to contact you when your gate is about to close but can't delay the aircraft's departure to wait for late passengers.


We try to update the above timings as soon as we are notified by BA but do please check their website for the very latest information as these times may be subject to change.
