Christmas trees at Heathrow

Swarovski have unveiled two 12ft Christmas trees in Heathrow T5 draped in over 2,000 sparkling decorations to celebrate the holiday season.  A specially designed pop-up store features Swarovski’s Crystal Forest architecture concept, and displays a range of products, including jewellery, time pieces, fragrance and gifts.

Swarovski also have shops in Terminals 1, 3 and 4, but no Swarovski trees.

Heathrow has the highest retail sales of any airport in the world ahead of South Korea’s Incheon airport in second place.  Gross retail sales in 2011 rose to £1.7bn from £1.5bn the previous year.  Net retail income per passenger increased by 5.3% to £4.35 (2010: £4.13).

In another move, the airport has introduced ‘Heathrow Boutique’ – a new service designed to allow passengers to browse and reserve products online before they arrive at the airport.  UK travellers will also be able to have items delivered to their home, allowing them to buy items such as laptops and televisions, without the hassle of baggage with a service called ‘Heathrow Delivered’, enabling to have luxury items delivered to their home address for free.  www.heathrowairport.com/shop,-eat,-relax-and-enjoy
