How to find the correct Heathrow airport postcode

on Sunday, 17 April 2005. Posted in News, News from 2005

Finding driving directions to UK airports can be difficult, as not all of the mapping websites recognise each airport by name, whereas it can also sometimes be difficult to find the correct postcode for the airport's exact location. In most cases, the full address and postcode can be found on the relevant airport homepage, although this can sometimes mean a bit of trawling around. In the case of London Heathrow, the main management offices for the airport are actually situated on the northern perimeter road, so any driving directions to here might land you further away from the airport terminals than you anticipated. If you are rushing to meet those tight check-in deadlines, then trying to get to the wrong part of a substantial airport site can make that vital difference between catching or missing your flight. Other airports with more than one terminal include: London Gatwick - RH6 ONP (North and South), Manchester - M90 1QX (1,2 and 3) and Birmingham - B26 3QJ (1 and 2; formerly Main and Eurohub). Coventry Airport's interim facility has separate departure and arrivals buildings, although both of these are in the same part of the site, to the south of the runway (CV3 4PB). Fortunately, at most UK airports, the terminals are accessible using the same approach road. We will shortly be publishing a more comprehensive UK airport guide, which will include information about which airlines operate from which terminals, and full driving directions, including the postcode and switchboard telephone number for each airport. London Heathrow Postcodes The exact postcodes for the terminals themselves do not appear to be available, although the national rail website does publish postcodes for all the stations in its network, including those which serve airports. As the Heathrow Express station at Terminal 4 is directly underneath the building, whereas the terminal 1,2 & 3 station is in the middle of the airport's central core, these should serve as the most useful addresses to use on direction finding websites: Heathrow Terminal Four (railway station) Southern Perimeter RoadLondonTW6 3AA Heathrow terminals 1, 2 and 3 (railway station) The Cofferdam, Chester RoadLondonTW6 1JS Any correspondence regarding the carriers which operate from Heathrow airport should be sent to the relevant airline concerned.
