UK's Heathrow and JCDecaux Airport UK unveiled (26-Sep-2013) the range of airport advertising opportunities that have been built into the fabric of Heathrow’s new terminal 2. Following terminal 5’s blueprint, JCDecaux Airport UK and Heathrow have worked alongside architects to develop a streamlined media space of digital screens and posters strategically planned-in to the design of this new terminal. Opening to the public on 04-Jun-2014, 20 million passengers are projected to pass through terminal 2 in one year alone. As well as providing a strong digital network of 100 Digital Airport Panels and Carousel Airport Panels, Heathrow terminal 2 will offer brands an extensive selection of large format digital sites. The most high-profile of these digital sites include the T2 Digital Towers (11.5m x 4.8m) that will reach 100% of the audience arriving at Departures, the T2 Motions (6.9m x 1.7m) located at the ticket presentation channel, the Couture Portals (7.5m x 1.7m) visible to all the passengers descending the escalators into the departure lounge and the T2 GrandView – a three-sided exterior structure that towers over the main entrance roads to the terminal. Other opportunities for brands include the Global Gateways, Couture Towers and Baggage Hall Domination. The Global Gateways target 100% of passengers departing the lounge whilst the Couture Towers will target the affluent consumers located in the retail areas. The Baggage Hall Domination will offer a network of six imposing sites strategically positioned above the baggage belts, dominating Baggage Reclaim. Terminal 2 will also provide two zones for exciting new experiential opportunities within the check-in area. JCDecaux Airport will extend formats that have proven successful at other terminals to terminal 2 such as the Digital Airport Panels, Carousal Airport Panels and Zonal Beacons. Heathrow head of advertising Nick Webb said: "Advertising is part of the fabric of Heathrow. Adopting the same successful approach we initiated at T5, the advertising panels and screens were designed into the construction blueprints. It is this integration that will ensure their effectiveness. Terminal 2 is central to Heathrow’s vision of Making every journey better". [more - original PR]

Brexit and aviation: still no clarity, even as UK government sets timeframe and broad principles
Over seven months after the UK voted in a referendum to leave the European Union, the longer term impact on aviation remains uncertain. The UK Prime Minister Theresa May will almost certainly gain parliamentary authority to trigger Article 50 by her planned deadline of the end of Mar-2017, taking the UK out of the EU by Mar-2019.
On 17-Jan-2017 Mrs May set out 12 principles which will guide the UK in its negotiations with the European Union over the terms of its exit. These principles formed the basis of a White Paper outlining the government's planned approach to the Brexit negotiations. Among other things, the UK does not plan continued membership of the EU Single Market and wishes to control immigration.
There is now a clear timeframe for the Brexit negotiations and a broad framework to guide the UK government in these talks, but still no clarity for aviation. There are obstacles to the UK's continued membership of the European Common Aviation Area, and a bilateral approach may now be more likely. The UK Transport Secretary wants the "best possible access to European aviation markets", but is not yet able to say how that can be achieved.
