It was so nice London Heathrow has decided to do it twice.
The airport has released further items from its now decommissioned Terminal One for public auction.
Aviation enthusiasts have the opportunity to snap up memorabilia such as seats and desks, as well as signs and other directional aids, via an online auction process that is currently underway and closes on September 18 2018.
This second auction comes five months after an initial batch of items was sold at auction by auctioneers Global Partners.
“We were delighted with the global response to our sale on April 21,” Global Partners European managing partner David Brindley said in a statement. “To say the event was a phenomenon would be an understatement.”
“But we are also conscious that however much there was on offer, a large number of bidders still walked away disappointed because of the level of competition for lots.
“We hope this second bite of the cherry will enable some of them to secure a little piece of aviation history with a lot of retro appeal after all.”
Terminal One was officially closed in 2015, almost half a century after welcoming its first passengers through its doors. At its peak, some nine million passengers passed through Terminal One a year. It mostly handled airlines that were members of the Star Alliance. Carriers such as British Airways, El Al and Icelandair also operated out of the terminal.
The full catalogue of the auction can be viewed on the CA Global Partners website.
