Heathrow viewing platform

Passengers at Heathrow can now enjoy some plane spotting as they wait for their own flight to depart.  The new ‘View Heathrow’ platform at Terminal 4 is the first of its kind at Heathrow since the old Terminal 2’s viewing platform was closed along with the building itself.

The new 270 degree observation deck has a view of the southern runway, the control tower and British Airways’ Concorde.  Fixed ipads on the platform show live flight radars so that visitors can identify the aircraft movements in front of them, as well as binoculars to get a better view.

Kathryn Leahy, Director, Terminal 4, said: “We are proud to be opening this viewing facility for passengers.  We know that many travellers enjoy plane spotting and we are pleased to be able to provide them with the opportunity to do so once again.”

The deck, located between gates 15 and 16 was converted from an unused former airline lounge.  The observation deck is open to all passengers in Terminal 4 during normal operating hours.  www.heathrowairport.com
