Terminal Information – Departing
This is only a guideline. Always check your boarding pass for up-to-date terminal information.
British Airways flights usually depart from Terminal 5. Check your boarding card before heading to the airport: the Piccadilly Line and the Heathrow Express run different trains to Terminals 4 and 5, which have separate stops. Check that the train you board is definitely going to Terminal 5 before boarding, and double-check that this is where you want to be. Terminal 5 itself is a modern and spacious place to while away a few hours. There are plenty of designer stores, including Burberry and Bottega Veneta, where you can make the most of duty free shopping. A fine array of restaurants, including Gordon Ramsay's Plane Food and Carluccios, mean that you don't need to fly on an empty stomach. There's also an executive lounge, if you really want to travel in style.

Manuel Tienda León coaches will take you to Retiro for 130* pesos, and from there you can decant onto a smaller bus which will take you on to your final destination. You can buy your ticket inside the airport at the appropriate desk. Public buses are not recommended for first-time visitors and those who don't know their way around the city. The journey can take up to two hours.
