Holiday warning: Borders see huge queues as Brits rush home – which airports are affected?

Almost 400,000 Brits were travelling this weekend as the amber list destinations were opened up a bit more.

Gatwick Airport said it expected to see between 25,000 to 75,000 passengers a day – up from a devastating low of just 15 flights per day at the height of the pandemic.

Stansted is seeing 1,330 planes take off this weekend, compared to a tiny 735 at the exact same time last year.

But Heathrow was another matter, with travellers being forced to queue hours just to check-in due to the debilitating issues.
