    Heathrow’s VIP Luxury Service

    Travelling via plane can be stressful due to the airport process and time management needed to make your flight on time. This includes getting to the airport, getting through security, locating the correct terminal and gate as well as many other factors.

    But recently Heathrow Airport gave travellers a sneak peek of their VIP luxury service that's traditionally used by celebrities as well as the royal family. The main purpose of the service is to give travellers a more luxurious and stress-free journey from their front door all the way up to boarding the plane. Heathrow Airport themselves have confirmed that almost 100 airport employees are part of this VIP team, with some employees starting as early as 4am in order to reach the holidaymakers in time.
