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:

  • 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
