BAA has introduced a discounts website for all 73,000 Heathrow Airport staff this week, including those working for airlines, retailers, catering and security firms.
For the past three years, the discounts had previously only been promoted at Christmas time, but the introduction of the website will allow employees to access the savings all year round.
Discounts on offer to employees include savings at many retailers within the terminals such as Ted Baker, Hamleys and Hugo Boss, restaurants including Wagamama, and tickets for London theatres.
A Heathrow spokesperson said: “For the last three years we have promoted staff offers at Christmas, everything from Christmas dinner to money off great gifts. These offers have always been well received so we decided to roll this out to a year-round benefits programme for staff at Heathrow. We always offer our customers great prices and service and feel it is important to treat our staff too.”
The website, which details the various employee savings on offer, can be accessed through a link on the BAA site but can also be accessed externally from any computer. Staff can then take their valid airport ID card to the specific retailer to cash-in on the discounts.
In order to promote the scheme, posters were placed around the airport and leaflets were delivered to all Heathrow-based staff.
