The UK’s most exclusive pop up landed at Heathrow today as we unveiled an igloo on the roof of our terminal three Clubhouse – creating the most over-the-top (literally) airport experience in the world.
We’ve collaborated with London’s Coppa Club to bring one of their highly sought after igloos to the Heathrow Clubhouse. This one of a kind igloo welcomes customers between now and 14th January 2018 offering spectacular views of the runway.
The heated igloo seats up to eight people, and is luxuriously decorated in a Nordic style with Virgin flair. Visit the Clubhouse over the festive period and you’ll be able to enjoy our mouth-watering food menu and award winning drinks as you dine before your flight.
The Coppa Club igloos quickly became one of the UK’s most in demand pop ups when they were introduced in 2016, and sold out within four hours when put on sale again this year. Our customers will now be amongst the lucky few to experience the fashionable pop up for a highly shareable selfie in this unique location.
“Once again we have shown what sets Virgin Atlantic apart,” said Daniel Kerzner, our vice president for customer experience. “We’ve created one of the world’s most thrilling airport experiences where customers can eat, drink and relax under the stars with unrivalled views of the runway.”
“Our customers love flying Virgin Atlantic as we are constantly innovating to create unique experiences that set us apart. This is another example of doing the unexpected and wow’ing our customers with something they won’t get anywhere else. This is the first of many experiences we will be launching on the ground and in the air throughout 2018.”
We’re also delighted to announce a new collaboration with Laplandia Super Premium Vodka, the flagship product of the Finnish Laplandia brand. Our Clubhouse bar team were challenged to come up with a Christmas themed cocktail, and the winner and three runners up will be featured on our December cocktail menu.
Created by Theo, the star of the show is an elegant, clear martini style drink whose complex and rich flavours bring to mind a high-end Christmas chocolate orange with attitude. The three runners up include a clementine based, citrusy drink with a dash of marmalade designed by James, a punch hot toddy style drink with a star anise garnish created by Thomas, and Antonella’s clever, creamy cocktail made using coconut cream, cinammon, and the coffee flavoured variant of Laplandia.
