Changes to Heathrow flights on Monday to respect the funeral arrangements of HM The Queen.
About 15% of flights into and out of London’s Heathrow Airport will be disrupted on Monday due to Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral, the airport said.
As a mark of respect for the solemnity of this sad and unique occasion, operations at the airport will be subject to alterations to avoid noise disturbance during the State Funeral:
- 1140-1210: no aircraft movements to support the two-minute silence at the conclusion of Her Majesty’s funeral
- 1345 – 1420: no arrivals to support the procession of Her Majesty’s hearse
- 1505 – 1645: no departures to support the ceremonial procession via the Long Walk to Windsor Castle
- 1645 – 2100: reduced departure rate to support the Committal service at St George’s Chapel
