Heathrow partners Gay Star News to share editorial and social media news on the travel section of Gay Star News, Gay Star Travel.
The partnership aims to bring interesting and relevant information, tips and news highlights to LGBT+ travellers to enhance their experiences, each time they fly.
Seventy five million passengers fly through Heathrow, the UK’s only hub airport each year. The partnership will bring them the most up to date travel innovations and services to help them make the most of their journey.
Heathrow’s business lead for marketing, Rebecca White, said: “After a successful year working with Gay Star News, we wanted to continue the partnership to offer interesting news, relevant to the diverse mix of travellers we see each day. We hope the stories we share make people feel excited to start their travel experience as soon as they arrive through our doors.”
After engaging with LGBT+ communities on successful campaigns last year, Heathrow is developing a larger and more encompassing campaign to demonstrate its commitment to diversity and inclusiveness.
Tris Reid-Smith, Editor-in-Chief of Gay Star News, added: “Heathrow is one of the most diverse places on earth. It’s literally a place where people from around the world come together. And it’s fantastic Heathrow is embracing the LGBT+ part of that diversity.
“As Oscar Wilde said: “Travel improves the mind wonderfully, and does away with all one’s prejudices.” This seems the perfect partnership to share that message.”
Jaime Tabberer, Editor of Gay Star Travel, said: We at GSN share the Heathrow team’s passion for exploring the world and making connections with people, so it’s the perfect partnership.
“I’m a firm believer that a positive airport experience can make or break a trip. Indeed, your holiday should start as soon as you check in, and it’s always a pleasure whenever I visit Heathrow. I’m looking forward to encouraging readers to enjoy Heathrow’s famous customer service, its plethora of amazing stores, restaurants and hotels, and its countless fabulous lounges.”
