The airport say they have chosen each of the 62 shops and restaurants following passenger requests and a study of the latest industry trends which called for more premium restaurant experiences and a greater number of British brands. Those confirmed include Cath Kidston, London’s Pride by Fullers, Bottega Veneta, Michael Kors and a new restaurant created by four local female chefs – The Gorgeous Kitchen.
Heathrow is home to some of the world’s most successful retail space, with outlets at the airport delivering annual net sales of over £1.8 billion and sales per square meter of £30,052.
The competitive two-year tender process resulted in more than five proposals for each unit In T2, surpassing the number of bids received for Terminal 5 opening.
Max Vialou-Clark, Heathrow’s retail director said: “Terminal 2’s opening will introduce Heathrow passengers to a whole new experience when they fly with us. From a restaurant created by Michelin-starred Heston Blumenthal to everyone’s favourite, John Lewis – we have really pushed the boundaries of what is expected from an airport.”
The new Terminal 2, known as ‘The Queen’s terminal’ will open on 4 June this year.
