LHRT2 reveals 60+ commercial units

By Doug Newhouse |


More than 60 commercial outlets will open at Heathrow T2 when ‘The Queen’s Terminal’ is formally opened on 23 June 2014.

 

The Heathrow Airport company says the new terminal will also feature the world’s first Personal Shopping lounge (Plaza Premium) at an airport, ‘providing customers with a comfortable and private space with an accredited stylist, delivering individually tailored sessions free of charge and regardless of ticket type’.  [Plaza Premium boasts a champagne bar, private relaxation rooms and a wellness spa-Ed].

 

The company said: “Terminal 2 will house a number of firsts, including an airport debut for British High-Street favourite John Lewis. The airport edition of John Lewis will see a unique collection covering the best of home, fashion and gift ranges.

WIDE SELECTION OF OFFERS

“Terminal 2 also welcomes multi-award winning chef Heston Blumenthal with the opening of his newest restaurant, which boasts the first wood-burning oven in a UK airport. The Perfectionists’ Café will cater for passengers who want exceptional food, quickly.”

 

“The Queen’s Terminal will open to the public on 4 June 2014 with a wide selection of retailers on board, from iconic British brands such as Cath Kidston and Ted Baker, through to luxury fashion houses including Bottega Veneta and Bvlgari.

 

This will be complemented by carefully selected restaurants, including a Seafood bar by Caviar House and The Gorgeous Kitchen – created by four local female chefs”.

 

Commenting on the impending opening, which is part of an £11bn ($18.5bn) airport development programme, Max Vialou-Clark, Heathrow’s Retail Director said: ‘Terminal 2 marks the next step in our quest to provide passengers with the best possible experience when they choose to travel through Heathrow.

 

Personal shoppers will be a feature.

 

 

A WORLD FIRST….

“Heathrow is now the only airport in the world to offer a free Personal Shopping lounge together with a selection of over 140 brands that have been selected especially for our customers.”

 

The new Terminal 2 will serve 15.8m passengers a year and be home to 23 Star Alliance airlines, Aer Lingus, Germanwings and Virgin’s Little Red. Heathrow Airport claims to generate total annual commercial sales of over £1.8bn ($3bn) a year.
