Heathrow has opened what it describes a pop-up park in Terminal 5 to give passengers, “a relaxing space to de-stress in.” Heathrow’s market research shows that, “Brits”
take a third of their annual holiday allowance – around eight days a year – to
relax into their holiday, while more than one in ten (11%) are never able to
fully switch off while away. As a result, Heathrow’s eateries have launched a pre-flight menu developed for al fresco dining, in recognition of the positive effect food and drink can have on people’s relaxation and wellbeing. The variety of food on offer uses ingredients that are said to be scientifically proven to help people unwind.
Heathrow has set out to become a word-class dining destination and can boast s string of awards, openings and airport firsts that have continued to highlight its new era of airport dining.
Earlier this year Heathrow was named ‘Best Airport Food & Beverage for over 25 million passengers’ as well as ‘World’s Best Airport Food & Beverage’ at the prestigious Food & Beverage Awards.
Ben Crowley, Head of Food & Beverage at Heathrow commented: ‘We are tremendously proud of our world-class dining offering at Heathrow, created to cater to our passengers’ diverse palates. “With the best of British and international cuisine, our passengers have come to expect high standards and an innovative food and beverage offering which sets Heathrow apart from the rest.”
