Heathrow Airport expects a number of changes in the coming days and travelers are likely to be affected.
It looks like things are starting to turn around for the airport, which lost billions in profits during the pandemic.
Changes to the red list and a new filing fee, both of which go into effect on Monday, November 1, should see the airport’s financial situation begin to change.

At 4 a.m., the remaining countries on the red list will turn green, meaning Britons are welcome to travel to any country they choose – as long as they are allowed to enter the other end.
The countries currently on the red list are Colombia, the Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Haiti, Panama, Peru and Venezuela.
Vaccinated Britons no longer need to self-isolate when returning from any of the aforementioned countries.

Currently, anyone arriving from the seven Red List locations must have their period of isolation in a government-mandated quarantine hotel.
From tomorrow, unvaccinated travelers will still need to self-isolate, but can do so in the comfort of their own homes – this rule applies to people arriving from any location outside the UK.
The second change marks the long-planned introduction of filing fees. From 1 November, those who wish to accompany their loved ones back to the airport will be forced to pay £ 5 to enter the forecourt.
Payments can be made online or through a new phone service.
