Reply To: BAA Pulls Its Finger Out: T5 Security South to Be Redesigned

Back to Forum


I fly to Manchester at least twice a week and made the difficult decision (as a BA Gold Card holder) to switch to BMI last year. The queues at security were a major driver – I typically spend 5-10 mins in T1 “normal” security vs. 15-30mins in T5 “fast track”. This is a shame as I prefer the BA lounges and in-flight service but I do not wish to have to leave the house 30 mins early just to fly BA.
The other driver for the switch is business parking – the Park 1 facility with its fleet of “always-there” minivans is far superior to T5’s Business Parking facility, where it is typical to wait 15-20 mins for a bus on return to LHR.
