Terminal Information – Departing

British Airways flights from London Heathrow to Geneva usually leave from Terminal 5, while Swiss International Airlines leave from Terminal 2. Terminal 5 is the newest addition to the airport, and is known for its luxury shops and restaurants. Terminal 2 also has plenty of high-end stores to browse, with the likes of Mulberry and Paul Smith as well as British mainstays like John Lewis and M&S.

Gatwick Airport has two terminals: British Airways and easyJet flights to Geneva leave from the North Terminal, while Monarch and Swiss both leave from the South Terminal. The airport's train station is in the South Terminal, but there's a frequent inter-terminal shuttle. Both terminals offer a wide range of shopping, entertainment, and dining options.

Luton Airport only has one terminal which is currently receiving a £100 million makeover. Food options are varied: you can grab a quick doughnut at Krispy Kreme, enjoy a healthy salad at Pret A Manger, or sit down for a slap up meal at Frankie & Benny's. There are plenty of shops too, from Kurt Geiger and MAC Cosmetics to Aelia Duty Free and Dixons.

Stansted Airport also has one terminal, with plenty to keep you happy while you wait for your flight to Geneva. Pick up some toys at Hamley's, some trendy clothes at Fat Face, or some last minute beauty bargains at Boots. Snack on some sushi at Itsu, enjoy dinner at James Martin Kitchen, or just celebrate your holiday with a glass of fizz at Halo.

Southend Airport has one terminal, which is functional but a little light on shops and restaurants. There are two places to eat, a first class lounge, a WHSmith and a duty free shop. London City Airport is similarly functional. Designed with business travellers in mind, the focus is on free Wi-Fi and coffee bars.
