Samsung will take airport branding to dizzying new heights next week with the renaming of a Heathrow Terminal.
For two weeks from Monday, Terminal five will be known as “Terminal Samsung Galaxy S5” to promote Samsung’s new phone.
The new name will be plastered on signs at the entrance, drop-off area, lounges, security and gates and the new name will appear on the terminal’s 175 digital screens.
Signs will point travellers to the terminal’s Dixons where they can buy the mobile phone.
The terminal five website will also be rebranded.
Terminal five was opened in 2008, is 353,000 square metres large and hosts thousands of passengers a day.
This is the first time it, or any other Heathrow terminal, has had its name changed for sponsorship.
Any attempt to make boring commutes across London more fun is to be admired - and when it involves a game of pass the parcel then that’s even better.
Commuters at the newly-refurbished Tottenham Court Road Tube station got a surprise when a gang of underwear models turned the platform into a catwalk.
A bar fitted out like old abandoned Tube station will whisk passengers back in time to the Blitz in 1940s Soho when it opens this week.
A stray cat who lived in Acton Town Tube station has finally found a new home - and it’s not even in Zone 6.
It’s the subject of countless greasy spoon arguments: should the perfect bacon sandwich be made with brown sauce or ketchup?
The charity which was set to receive donations from Annie the Owl has backed away from the owl cafe and called the plans for a pop-up bar ‘abusive’.
