Assalamu alaikum,

I have a flight on Friday at 12.30pm. In terms of salaatul Jumuah what should be done as we will be in the waiting area for the flight at the Begining time for zuhr in London which is at 11.59am. Should we do Zuhr or should we still try to make a jamaat for Jumuah?

Jumu'aah Salaah is not necessary for travelers. In your circumstances, it is better you pray Dhuhr.
