Airports in London & Miami get Olympics fever

Miami International Airport is saluting the Olympics with some fun events and promotions from Friday, July 27th through Monday, July 30th.

While a DJ spins tunes from around the world, passengers will be able to:

  • Get a picture taken on a winner’s podium and take home a souvenir postcard;
  • Win a gold, silver or bronze medal at a ring toss;
  • Create Olympic-themed crafts;
  • Hold the MIA Olympic torch;
  • Play Wii games against the Olympics mascots.

London’s Heathrow Airport is also having fun with the summer Olympics.
There are ping-pong tables set up in all the terminals, Olympics-themed art, giant globes and a full-schedule of character appearances and live music. Throughout the games, updates on medal winners will be announced on the public address system as well.

    FYI: in the past, Arlanda Airport in Stockholm has had some interesting exhibits during the Olympics. I will be landing there on August 3 of this year so I hope to see some more.
