Heathrow Airport unveiled three freshly wrapped pods with a brand-new design.

The new designs for the pods were created by Heathrow Express’ charity partner, Pursuing Independent Paths (PIP) –a charity which helps adults with learning disabilities and autism, to find their voice and lead a life of their choice.  

Last year, Heathrow Express organised for a group of adults from PIP, to travel from Paddington to Heathrow Airport.

Arriving on the Heathrow Express, the aim of the day was to learn and experience the process of arriving at the airport and going through the process of getting on a flight.

This journey can be stressful, scary, and unsettling for those with autism and could result in missed flights for individuals and their family. 

Design winner Pamela enjoyed her visit to the airport and was delighted to learn she had won the competition.
