BA and ice cream

British Airways is making sure that youngsters know all about the airline from the youngest age.  Customers at Gatwick are being helped to get into the holiday mood with a summer send-off courtesy of the airline and Gatwick Airport.

During two of the busiest weeks of the year for the airport passengers passing through the North Terminal will have the chance to pick up some complimentary ice cream and fun beach giveaways including beach balls, beach towels and frisbees.

British Airways staff will be on hand to offer customers holiday gifts in the glass atrium entrance to the departures level and plans to give away over 50,000 ice creams during the two weeks.

But it is not just British Airways passengers who will benefit.  Anyone travelling through the North Terminal will be able to come along and enjoy an ice cream.

Colm Lacy, British Airways’ Head of Commercial Gatwick, said: “It’s all good fun.  We simply want to get people excited for their holidays and thought this was an ideal way of celebrating with them”.  It seems that children in the South Terminal will have to go without. www.ba.com www.gatwickairport.com
