Heathrow has teamed up with London-based street artist Ben Eine to create a range of personalised welcome home banners to greet passengers with this Christmas! We’re giving you the chance to download your own banner here as well as a chance for 20 lucky people to win a personalised original from the artist himself! Details below.

This Christmas, Heathrow is giving every passenger the chance to have their own heartfelt reunion in arrivals just as teddy bears Doris and Edward* did in their Christmas film.

The limited edition welcome home banners will be available to pick up at Heathrow terminals* for a week from Tuesday 6th December, when Ben Eine will be customising the prints for people waiting to welcome home loved ones for Christmas.

All donations for the personalised banners will go to Heathrow’s charity partner, Oxfam.

More about the banners and the 2.5 million people expected to fly through Heathrow over Christmas…

Commenting on the upcoming launch Ben Eine said; “I’m always traveling and spend a lot of time in airports so I know what it feels like to get a personal welcome home. I wish I got more of them! I love being able to communicate through my artwork and I am looking forward to helping to put a smile on the faces of people arriving into London Heathrow this Christmas.”

Fiona Carleton, Head of Passenger Experience at Heathrow, said “We are looking forward to welcoming over 2.5 million people over the Christmas period and making their journey extra memorable. We hope the banners not only give our passengers a welcome home to remember but that the friends and family greeting them have a little extra something to make the experience special, too.”

Over 1,000 people visit Heathrow each month just to give their loved ones an extra special welcome.

There will be one of three banners to choose from; Welcome Home, Love You and Missed You, all of which Ben will add the name of the person being greeted, using his iconic and colourful fonts.

The Ben Eine banners can be picked up from all terminals from Tuesday 6th December until Saturday December 10th. Alternatively, you can download the banners below.
