Passengers at Heathrow Airport have reported long queues today (March 27) as they wait to board their planes. Some have expressed concerns about missing their flights and have said 'hundreds' have been affected.

Pictures posted on social media show passengers waiting in massive queues to drop off bags, and struggling to find somewhere to sit in the airport's seating areas. It comes after theUK dropped all coronavirus travel restrictions, giving people more freedom to travel abroad.

There appears to be issues at Terminal 2, with one person reporting that "literally hundreds of people" were waiting to drop off their bags. It is not the first time passengers have faced chaos atHeathrow- in September last year they faced three and a half hour long queuesafter an IT failure.

Some people have asked the airport whether people would receive compensation if they miss their flight due to the delays. On Twitter, user @The_Acc_Ev said: "Perhaps it might be useful to have more people Manning the bag drop/check in area rather than the Twitter? Will you reimburse if plane is missed due to lack of competence/staff at @HeathrowAirport?"

Another person claimed that the queues were over an hour long. @smartercommeu said: "@HeathrowAirport not doing a great job of being a world class hub. Queues of over an hour just to check in."

Colum Duffy posted two pictures from one of the airport's waiting areas, and said: "At @HeathrowAirport T5 today. Have never seen the place so busy. Lots of queues...Travel is back."

希思罗机场发言人说:“机场是忙碌的this weekend as relaxed restrictions are allowing more people to travel. We have extra colleagues on hand to help out, and we’re working with all airport partners to get passengers on the move as quickly as possible.”
