McFly light up Heathrow this Christmas
Thursday 18, November 2010
Heathrow has switched on its first ever Christmas lights with the help of McFly.
Dressed in pilot uniforms, the acclaimed pop rockers flicked the switch outside Terminal 5 Arrivals on 16th November before performing a surprise gig for staff and passengers.
Despite the chilly temperatures, McFly put on a warm welcome by serenading a crowd with hits such as Party Girl and Shine a Light from their new album, Above the Noise, for the first ever airport gig, as well as old favourites, including All About You and Star Girl.
The Christmas lights will remain on at the world’s busiest international airport for the whole of the festive season during which time three million passengers are expected to fly through Heathrow with nearly half a million between Saturday 19th December and Thursday 24th December alone.
More and more travellers think that researching and planning a European city break is half the fun and they're not interested in pre-arranged trips or escorted tours. Self-guided tours offer a lot of advantages but require some guidance and good resources.
With the recent wild fires, disrupting flights and increasing air pollution, environmental quality is a growing factor in attracting tourists.
