Travel Restarts as the World Opens it’s Doors

May 17th 2021 was an exciting day as the UK continued to relax COVID-19 travel restrictions. More thrilling was Starstruck being right at the heart of the story as we produced the Travel Restart announcement event for British Airways.

Featuring BA CEO Sean Doyle and John Holland-Kaye, CEO of Heathrow Airport, our crew literally set the stage for some major travel announcements, live streaming a special broadcast to the country from Heathrow’s Terminal 5.

Starstruck was responsible for an end-to-end facilitation that included venue branding, set design and builds, infrastructure of the multi-camera live stream, plus a suite of post-event social content and announcement highlights.

Starstruck was also selected by British Airways to live broadcast the sad moment of the airline’s final departing Boeing 747s from Heathrow. Retired two years early due to the coronavirus outbreak, our production team took to the runway whilst over half a million people watched on live as we streamed this iconic moment for BA.
