Terminal Information – Departing
From Gatwick: easyJet and Thomson Airways depart from the North Terminal. Monarch Airlines, Norwegian Airlines, Small Planet Airlines, Thomas Cook Airlines and SmartLynx Airlines all fly from the South Terminal. Gatwick's train station is in the South Terminal. If you're flying with easyJet or Thomson, make sure you take the inter-terminal shuttle to the North terminal before going through security. Both terminals have a wide range of shops and restaurants. As a rule of thumb, shopping is on the lower level of the departure lounge and eateries are on the upper level.
From Heathrow: Iberia Express and British Airways both depart from Terminal 5. This terminal is known for its gourmet restaurants (including Gordon Ramsay's Plane Food) as well as its wide range of designer boutiques. There are some good high-end executive lounges here, too.
From Luton: Luton Airport only has one terminal. The departure lounge has a wide range of high-street shops and snack bars. Cloud Nails is great for a pre-holiday manicure, and there's an Aspire lounge for those who enjoy relaxing in style before they fly.
From Stansted: Stansted has one terminal. Shops include World Duty Free, The Body Shop, Hamley's and WH Smith. Gran Canaria is technically outside the EU so you can enjoy tax free shopping. Restaurants include British favourites like Giraffe and Itsu, as well as a James Martin Kitchen.
