Terminal Information – Departing
This is only a guideline. Always check your boarding pass for up-to-date terminal information.
Brussels Airlines flights leave from terminal 1. This terminal has a good range of shops including high-street favourites like Monsoon, Boux Avenue and Fat Face. Because you're flying out of the EU you can enjoy your tax free discount in these stores as well as at Biza Duty Free. Dining options in terminal 1 range from quick and easy snack bars to sit-down restaurants. United Airlines and Delta depart from terminal 2. There's a Biza Duty Free in this terminal too, as well as airport favourites like WH Smith, Boots and Dixons Travel. There are two coffee shops, a restaurant, a fast-food joint and a bar. Both terminals have an Escape lounge, but if you're planning to use it we recommend booking well in advance.

British citizens don't need a visa to visit Canada for short trips. If you're going on a long-term visit, have a criminal record, or are planning to work in Canada, we recommend speaking to the Canadian High Commission. If you're flying into Canada you will need to apply for an Electronic Travel Authorisation (ETA) through the Canadian Government Website. If you have dual Canadian nationality you won't need to, although it's recommended that you enter the country with your Canadian passport.
When you fly with a combination of airlines (for example United and Expressjet Airlines) make sure you give yourself plenty of time to make the connection. Remember you'll need to collect your baggage, go through customs, check-in for the second flight and go through airport security. If the first leg of your journey is delayed you might not have much recourse with the other airline. Make sure your travel insurance covers this.
