Exclusive security channel from check-in to lounge
Since The First Wing opened on 5 April , the new exclusive check-in area for British Airways’ First, Gold Executive Club and oneworld Emerald customers at London Heathrow Terminal 5 has welcomed nearly 200,000 travellers through the dedicated security channel leading directly into the Galleries First lounge and Concorde Room.
Around 1,800 customers a day transferring through The First Wing from check-in to the lounge, which takes a lot of traffic away from normal check-in channels.
