Time Estimates for Clearing Customs/Immigration/Passport Control

Jump to last reply

Hello!

My husband and I are US citizens with global entry flying to/from NYC, but I'm curious about the estimated times to get through the various international airports we're visiting for our trip in September. I'm trying to figure out as I plan my itinerary approx what time we'll be arriving at our hotels to see if we need to plan for killing time before we can check in (or try to negotiate with the hotel for an earlier check in). We'll be checking bags on each leg, and taking cabs from the airports to the hotels, so I'm factoring that in too. It's been a number of years since either of us have travelled internationally, so I don't remember how long anything took.

*US to Heathrow --> At Heathrow, how much time approx to get through all security check points (customs/immigration/passport control)? We're flying Virgin Atlantic if the terminal matters.
*Gatwick direct to Santorini --> same question, flying Easy Jet.
*Santorini direct to Barcelona --> same question, flying Vueling.

Thank you in advance!
