As one of the world's most dynamic and fast-paced airports, Heathrow is an exciting and iconic location for film and photographic shoots.
Click on one of the links below to submit your filming or photography request. Please note that at present we are only taking new commercial requests from the end of June 2013.
Commercial applicants will be prompted to upload risk assessment/method statement and valid public liability insurance. Please have these to hand.
Commercial filming/photography includes all levels of film and TV production, corporate productions, fashion shoots, educational and charity projects as well as filming/photography for internal use.
A location fee and potentially staff costs will apply. For details, please click here.
Airlines and retail partners wishing to film or photograph for project, internal, audit or proof of posting purposes no longer need to apply for a media permit. If undertaking filming or photography intended for external use, including online and social media, the application and related safety documentation must be completed by the production company.
We're sorry but Heathrow is unable to accommodate student film-makers.

Non-commercial filming is aimed primarily at news - where the story is aviation related, topical, in the public interest and the crew size is minimal.
Filming for internal use is classed as commercial.
Documentaries about the airport should be submitted through the commercial route, though may not necessarily be charged depending on the precise subject nature.
