Arrivals Has Never Looked So Good

Tuesday, 20 April 2010

PA photographer Dominic Lipinski caught this great image of the first passengers disembarking at Heathrow Airport following the lifting of the ban on entering UK airspace. The photo appeared on the Guardian's article on the lifting of the restrictions.

The decision brings to an end the six-day long suspension of air travel, caused by a volcanic eruption in Iceland, that has stranded thousands of Britons overseas and pretty much shut down air travel right across Europe.

The typeface is FF Info, designed by Erik Spiekermann of EdenSpiekermann.
