Easter 2017: Extreme queues at London airports in wake of Easter holidays
Heathrow passengers complained of “shocking service” and “huge queues”, some of them spending over 45 minutes in passport queues, according to Evening Standard.
Grant Lipton wrote on Twitter: “Huge queues at passport control. Over 45 minutes so far with no end in site (sic).”

There were also endless queues of cars in the airport’s access tunnel on Thursday morning.
The large queues are expected to affect other areas as well. Drivers were advised to avoid motorways between 10 am – 2 pm on Good Friday, while Network rail warned that engineering works taking place over the Easter 2017 weekend may cause turmoil for rail passengers.
