03 July 2015 Thai Airways debuted their new A380 on its inaugural flight to Heathrow Wednesday morning. Passengers were welcomed by greeters in guardsman uniform, while airline staff handed out purple orchids as a sign of hospitality. Have a look at our album for photos of all the fun, as well as the stunning aircraft!
30 June 2015 Last night marked the end of 47 years of operations in Terminal 1. We celebrated this icon of our history with members of the 1968 opening team as the final flight, BA 970, departed for Hannover. Its closure marks the end of an era, but will enable us to make way for improved services and the eventual expansion of Terminal 2. Take a walk down memory lane through this short video #T1lightsoff :
