British Airways Aquarium Upgrade

British Airways is promoting the new ambience available at Terminal 5, at Heathrow Airport, with a television commercial, “Aquarium”. Fish, seals, rays, jellyfish, turtles, dolphins and a whale glide and cavort through the new Terminal 5.

British Airways Aquarium

“The creation of Terminal 5 has been a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for us to redefine air travel. Our aim was to replace the queues, the crowds and the stress with space, light and calm. Whether departing, arriving or connecting through, to travel with British Airways and to fly from or to Terminal 5, is to change the way you fly forever.”

Music is “The Good Life”, performed by Julie London. Publishing and master synch licenses were brokered at Leap Music, London.
