IN PICTURES: Avianca returns to Heathrow

A water cannon salute, beefeaters, guardsman and a Colombian musical band provided a spectacular welcome to Terminal 2 for new entrant and Star Alliance member, Avianca.


The first Avianca flight from Colombia (Bogota El Dorado) touched down at 14:40 on Friday 4 July. A floral flourish was provided by the handing out of yellow and red roses to passengers. Check out more action from the day by clicking on the gallery below!
