Heathrow installs sensory park pod in T2

Heathrow claims it is the only gateway in the world to provide passengers with an on-board picnic offering from every one of its restaurants.

To celebrate this, the airport has brought elements of London’s iconic parks to Terminal 2 for one week only, through a sensory park pod.

Situated in Terminal 2, the park pod will incorporate the best that London’s parks have to offer, from the smell of freshly cut grass to the sound of birds chirping in the trees.

When drawing inspiration for the park pod, Heathrow asked passengers to list their favourite parks, with the research revealing British passengers’ top 5 London parks are Hyde Park, Regent’s Park, Richmond Park, Greenwich Park, and Victoria Park.

Available all-year-round and with 118 outlets such as Caviar House & Prunier, Heston Blumenthal’s The Perfectionists' Café and Gordon Ramsay’s Plane Food offering on-board picnic options, travellers can enjoy dining at 30,000 feet whenever they fly from Heathrow.

Ben Crowley, head of F&B at Heathrow, says “On-board picnics not only give our passengers the freedom to choose when they eat their meal, it also provides them with an unparalleled selection to choose from.

“With a range of on-board picnics available from 118 different retailers across Heathrow’s five terminals, customers are spoilt for choice. Whether they want caviar, sushi or pizza, there’s a restaurant that will package something up for them to take on board their flight.”
