Getting permission to fly from Heathrow was a big moment for us. Until then, we'd been growing fast and flying our long haul routes to JFK, Los Angeles, and Tokyo from Gatwick. After years of lobbying, we were finally allowed to paint Heathrow red. It was the start of a beautiful relationship.
In those 30 years there have been so many memories. Inaugural flight parties, new aircraft deliveries, the stepping off point on countless adventures, those Clubhouse cocktails and then for us personally, the teamwork, the great moments, being there for our customers. Here are just three of our favourite Heathrow moments.
