Half-term high jinks at Heathrow

Families are due to receive a special welcome at Heathrow during half-term week with Mr Men characters, activities for children and the return of the airport’s Kids Eat Free promotion. New family-friendly super-fast wi-fi is also being unveiled.

For 10 days from next Thursday, 13 February, Heathrow’s Mr Men characters Mr Adventure and Little Miss Explorer will be visiting the terminals with passenger ambassadors, encouraging children to take part in craft activities.

Young passengers this year can also start on the Mr Men fun ahead of their travels through a new Mr Men family portrait feature which allows them to assign Mr Men characters to family members and friends to create a personalised portrait.

The Kids Eat Free offer is available at selected restaurants across terminals when an adult also eats, while this month also marks the start of Heathrow’s government-certified 'Friendly Wi-Fi', which filters out inappropriate content.

Heathrow chief commercial officer Ross Baker said: “Our ambition is to provide the world’s best airport service for all our passengers – no matter their age – and we are delighted to welcome back our Mr Men characters, family services and offers.

“As a parent myself, I am especially pleased that we now offer certified 'Friendly Wi-Fi' which will keep our youngest passengers safe online and give parents the reassurance and peace of mind they deserve in their travels through the airport.”
