The First Flight

Client: Heathrow

Heathrow has launched its first ever television campaign ‘First Flight’ to celebrate 70 years of flight at the airport. Set to David Bowie’s ‘When I Live My Dream’, the airport’s advert tells the story of the magic of a journey as seen through the eyes of a 5-year-old girl with her companion, Owly. On the girl’s journey from home, through the airport and then onto a flight with her treasured suitcase at her side, Harriet marvels at the magic all around her. The advert ends with the line ‘To the next 70 years of first flights’.

The advert launches on the airport’s social media channels today and will then feature on TV for the first time on Thursday 21st July during the first break of Emmerdale on ITV.

In honour of Heathrow’s 70th anniversary, Qantas is offering 70 people the chance to win ‘The Ultimate Trip’: a five-night stay in Sydney, Australia, travelling from Heathrow on the award-winning Qantas A380. Travellers are invited to share their favourite Heathrow memory – from amusing anecdotes to heart-warming tales – to be in with a chance to win one of 35 pairs of tickets available at stories.heathrow.com.

Heathrow’s CEO John Holland-Kaye said: "Heathrow has been proudly connecting the UK to the rest of the world for 70 years. Our campaign subtly celebrates the work that goes on behind the scenes by more than 400 organisations to make flight possible at Heathrow. The story is told through the eyes our heroine who sees the result of the airport team’s work as touches of magic throughout her journey with Heathrow."
