The Heathrow Airport Terminal 5

Heathrow is one of the busiest airports in Europe. The airport currently employs 68,000 personnel. It has several terminals.

For example, Terminal 5 has its own modern rail station with six rail platforms which improved the transport infrastructure between the centre of London and Heathrow Airport.

Passengers use online check-in or self-service kiosks when they reach the airport.

Дэниела: Привет!

Дэниела: Извините, не могли бы Вы сказать мне, через какой коридор нам идти?

Officer: If you’ve got anything to declare you go through the red channel. If you haven't got anything to declare you go through the green channel.

Дэниела: Как мне узнать, имею ли я что-либо для внесения в декларацию?

Officer: Are you staying in Britain for more than six months?

Дэниела: Нет.

Officer: Well, the amount of goods you can bring in without paying duty depends on where you bought them. You can have two hundred cigarettes, one litre of spirits, two litres of wine and presents worth twenty-eight pounds if you bought them in a country not in the EEC...

Джон: Хорошо. У меня есть 1,5 литра бренди и 3 литра вина, которое я купил в Италии. У меня нет никаких подарков. Это значит, что я не имею ничего, подлежащего обложению таможенной пошлиной.

Officer: That’s right. You can go through the green channel.

Дэниела: У меня только две сотни сигарет и 1 литр виски, которые я купила в самолете, но у меня есть видеокамера, которую я купила в Италии за 200 фунтов. Это подарок другу моего отца.
