Event

London’s Metropolitan Police issued a dispersal order for the areas surrounding Heathrow Airport (LHR) on Friday, September 13. The order will be in place for approximately 48 hours, commencing at 04:30 (local time). A map of the dispersal zone can be found on the Met website. Under the measure, police officers are allowed to order individuals who have committed, or are likely to commit, anti-social behavior to leave a specified area and not return for up to 48 hours. Authorities issued the order to prevent climate change protesters from flying drones over LHR on September 13 to force all flights to be grounded. LHR officials have also issued a statement saying that they are working closely with the authorities to ensure the airport will remain open and to minimize any intended disruptions.

According to social media posts from the "Heathrow Pause" group on Friday morning, early attempts to fly drones into LHR have been unsuccessful due to signal jamming. Associated flight disruptions, including delays and cancelations, are still possible through Friday.

Context

Police officers arrested five environmental activists associated with Heathrow Pause on Thursday, September 12. According to the Met, the five people were held on “suspicion of conspiracy to commit a public nuisance.”

Advice

Travelers flying via LHR are advised to monitor developments to the situation, confirm flight reservations, anticipate flight disruptions, and contact their airline for further information.
