About filming, photography and recording permits
Generally, a request for a permit must be made at least two working days before the required date. Security will remove anyone filming, photographing or recording without this permission.
Commercial filming, photography and recording requests are charged a service fee unless they are related to a current news issue or involve a BAA business partner – view location fees (21KB PDF).
The fee schedule takes into account the number of people involved in the shoot and the time required on our property.
Permission can only be granted if the applicant can demonstrate that they have at least £5 million in public liability insurance.
All permits issued are location- and time-specific.
Applicants wishing to film, photograph or record airline property or staff must first obtain the airline's permission.
Unfortunately, it is not usually possible to allow student filming and photography at Heathrow, although we will consider all requests.
