Tim Peake posters unveiled in all four terminals at London Heathrow

British European Space Agency (ESA) astronaut Tim Peake arrived back in the UK today (July 13) for the first time in seven months following his six-month trip to the International Space Station. The astronaut touched down in London Heathrow Airport Terminal 2 (T2) after setting off from Houston, Texas.

To celebrate the occasion, Heathrow unveiled Peake as one of 20 iconic figures represented in 60 welcome posters at the airport, located in a variety of areas from baggage reclaim to the departure gates. Photographs of Tim with his arms outstretched in his distinctive blue overalls will be showcased in all four terminals. Peake’s first public appearance in the UK is planned for July 15, 2016, at the Farnborough Air Show.

John Holland-Kaye, CEO, London Heathrow, said, “Heathrow is a great British asset that is recognized around the world and now from space too. We are honored that astronaut Tim Peake has joined our line-up of iconic personalities that celebrate the diversity and color that the UK has to offer.”
