Heathrow Airport is now selling access to its Fast Track security lane, with passengers asked to stump up £12.50 (A$22) each in their effort to jump the queue.
Available to outbound travellers at all four of Heathrow's terminals, the Fast Track path is normally reserved for business class and first class passengers and top-tier frequent flyers.
However, Heathrow Airport has opened up the program to any traveller provided they pre-book their spot.
That booking "must be made no later than two days before travel" and includes nominating "a time slot approximately two hours before your flight is scheduled to depart."
Confirmation is sent via email, which is presented along with your boarding pass at the Fast Track desk.
British Airways passengers headed out from Terminal 5 are advised to use the North Security area, which is closest to the Heathrow Express and Tube exits.
That said, BA's first class flyers, Executive Club Gold and Oneworld Emerald passengers (including Qantas Platinum and Platinum One card-holders) enjoy their own 'fast track' straight from the terminal to the lounge in the form of BA's First Wing.
The only issue with paying for Fast Track access is that, as regular travellers will attest, it's not always that fast to begin with...
