Find out how to prepare your baggage for travel
If you have baggage to check in, and already have your boarding pass through the British Airways mobile app or our website, you can go directly to the Bag Drop area in the airport with your boarding pass, identification and other required travel documents (e.g. visas).
If you do not have your boarding pass, please use the Check-in Kiosks to print your pass before going to the Bag Drop area.
At London Heathrow Terminal 5, London Gatwick and London City airports, once you have a boarding pass, you can get your baggage tags and check your bag in at our Bag Drop points.
- At London Heathrow Terminal 5 the Bag Drop points are in Zone C, D and F of the Departures area.
- At London City the Bag Drop point is on the main Departures concourse.
If you are travelling from London Heathrow Terminal 3, you can print your baggage tags at a Check-in Kiosk (even if you have already checked in), attach them to your bags and take them to the Bag Drop area in Departures.
