Park Live Presented by British Airways at Olympic Park

As British Airways is busy flying passengers into Heathrow Airport (LHR), London Gatwick Airport (LGW), and London City Airport (LCY), the airline has lawn captains testing out their moves and giant wings in anticipation of greeting the crowds at Olympic Park.

Despite some hiccups with public transportation, North Korean athletes being pictured next to the South Korean flag, and crowded airports, London 2012 has the Green Light!

Even the immigration queues are said to be reasonable with a a strike called off by UK Immigration & Customs employees — the strike being called off is great news as today, July 26, is predicted to be the busiest day ever at London’s Heathrow Airport (LHR), as thousands of spectators arrive on the eve of the Friday’s opening ceremony.

Thousands of the spectators will have the opportunity to take-in what is set to become the ‘Henman Hill’ of the Games, “Park Live Presented by British Airways” — Park Live was tried and tested by hundreds of the airline’s staff and volunteers.

Visit BA’s Park Live for Fun and Prizes

Park Live, located in the center of the wetland bowl, will be a place for spectators to go during the games to watch record-breaking action take place on giant LED screens and to see the athletes interviewed on the BA Stage – the area is setup to accommodate 10,000 spectators at any given time.

Visitors to Park Live will encounter a lively atmosphere with sing-a-longs, dance routines and prizes – including free British Airways Tickets – during intervals. The LED screens, three times the height of a double decker bus, will broadcast non-stop footage of live action from the BBC and Channel 4 during the Olympic Games and Paralympic Games respectively.

The British Airways Stage

However, the main focal point will be the BA stage – already tested for durability, weather resistance and its acoustics, has been given the once-over by Park Live presenters; Matthew Lorenzo, Graham Rogers and Jo Pickard who will be entertaining the crowds and interviewing guests daily.

British Airways staff who will take the part of hosts come from right across the airline including cabin crew, engineers, pilots and airport staff and will be looking after visitors come rain or shine.

Park Live presented by British Airways opens on Saturday 28 July, and is free to access daily between 7am and 11pm for all Olympic Park ticket holders.
