It may be the busiest time of the year so far for Heathrow; but this Easter, the airport is preparing to make the experience as pleasant and seasonal as possible for passengers.
An expected 1.2 million passengers are expected to travel through the airport over the Easter break. Thursday will be the busiest for departures, with 116,000 jetting off on holiday.
Over the entire two-week school break, it anticipates 3.6 million total passengers, with over 40% more families. In preparation, there will be a welcome area for families, created in partnership with Beatrix Potter’s Peter Rabbit™. He will be on hand to present storytelling and arts and craft sessions over the holiday period. There will also be free Peter Rabbit™ Passport activity booklets and chocolate treats distributed across all terminals.
Heathrow will also put on more staff, including 150 passenger ambassadors in the terminals to help direct parents to dedicated family lanes in security and free play areas in the departure lounges. The airport’s restaurants are also prepared for the holiday season with Kids Eat Free offers, high chairs and fun packs.
Those checking in to Terminal 5 will also be treated to performances from the London Philharmonic Orchestra.
