Qantas opens pop-up beach at London Heathrow to celebrate Australia Day

To celebrate Australia Day today (January 26), airline operator Qantas and London Heathrow Airport have opened a pop-up beach in the Terminal 3 (T3) forecourt.

The event celebrates the Australian national holiday and Heathrow’s successful partnership with Qantas as part of the airport’s 70th birthday celebration campaign. Travelers visiting the stand will experience a taste of Australia, including sweet treats and entertainment by a live acoustic band.

Markus Svensson, regional general manager UK, Europe, Middle East and Africa, Qantas, said, “Australia Day is all about celebrating the best of Australia, no matter where you are in the world. When London to Perth flights launch next year, UK travellers will be able to experience Australia firsthand with our non-stop services. But today, Qantas and Heathrow are bringing the Aussie summer to them.”

Jonathan Coen, customer services director, Heathrow, said, “We are delighted to give passengers a ‘warm’ Aussie welcome to Terminal 3 on this chilly January day. We have had a fantastic year working with Qantas celebrating our birthday and hearing all the exciting stories from passengers travelling with us. Here’s to the next 70 years of stories.”
