Border Force is committed to providing the best possible service to all passenger. For example, by maximising staff available at the busiest times of day, making the best use of e-gates, and deploying 220 additional staff over the summer, mostly at Heathrow. Border Force is also recruiting an additional 300 frontline Border Force officers to provide further resilience going forward.

Border Force has continued to engage with key stakeholders including airlines and airport operators over the busy summer period to deal with the increasing demand and ensure we keep the border secure.
