Terminal Information – Departing

Gatwick: British Airways and easyJet fly from the North Terminal, while all other airlines depart from the South Terminal. The train station is in the South Terminal, so if you're flying with BA or easyJet you will need to take the inter-terminal shuttle to reach the correct check-in area. Both terminals are like mini shopping malls and have a fantastic range of bars, restaurants, cafes and shops. The Canary Islands are outside the European Union so you can indulge in duty free shopping.

Heathrow: Iberia Express flights generally leave from Terminal 5. There are some great luxury shops such as Alexander McQueen and Burberry, as well as some great places to eat: including Gordon Ramsay's Plane Food.

Luton: There's just one terminal to navigate. Enjoy duty free shopping at the likes of Kurt Geiger and Dixons Travel, treat yourself to a pre-holiday manicure, or enjoy a quick bite to eat in one of the many cafes.

Southend: This is a simple airport with two places to eat (Lakers Bar & Restaurant and Arnold & Forbes Cafe Kitchen) and two places to shop (WHSmith and Stobart Airport Shopping duty free store).

Stansted: Most of the shops and restaurants are clustered together in the airport's one terminal. You can pick up some bargain beauty buys at The Body Shop, have a sit-down meal at James Martin Kitchen, or enjoy a glass of fizz at Blanc et Noir.
