There are no Airline Liaison Officers (ALOs) or Returns Liaison Officers (RLOs) based in the United Kingdom.

Airline Liaison Officers work at points abroad identified as significant points of embarkation for inadequately documented passengers boarding flights to the United Kingdom. Returns Liaison Officers are based overseas and are responsible for establishing and maintaining liaison with foreign officials on the ground to facilitate the return of those with no legal basis to remain in the United Kingdom.
