Just Plane Fun returns to PHL Airport


Philadelphia International Airport has brought back its popular “Just Plane Fun” series of summertime customer appreciation events ranging from product demonstrations and live music to make-overs and a variety of events with prizes.

The schedule changes weekly, but this week’s events include beauty makeovers and skin consultations for men and women – along with free photos – on Wednesday and live music (and dancing) on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday.

But wait – there’s more!

The Pennsylvania Horticultural Society has a pop-up garden in the Terminal B/C baggage claim and a new exhibit just opened (in Terminal A-East) with photos illustrating a long list of Philadelphia firsts – including the first lending library, hospital, university, art museum, zoo, U.S. Mint, and children’s hospital.

Photos in “About Philadelphia: A City of Firsts” also remind travelers that Philadelphia hosted the country’s first World’s Fair, and was where the first ice cream soda was made, and where Mother’s Day was first celebrated.
