London Heathrow Airport is trialling the calming quality of plants in its airport to relax stressed passengers.
Travellers flying from Gate 25 Terminal 3 at the west London airport will go through what Heathrow has dubbed a 'Garden Gate', the first, it says, in the UK.
The gate is created with seven 1.8m high x 2.4m wide Biotecture green walls, each with 240 plants, including English Ivy and the Peace Lily.
On average 287,274 passengers go through Gate 25 every year Heathrow strategy director Emma Gilthorpe said passengers can now "enjoy a natural sanctuary of rest and relaxation as they make their way through the airport"
"We are proud to have received our best ever passenger service scores to date this summer, but we are always keen to make our passengers' journeys better. "
The walls will be trialled for the next 6 months and could be replicated across the airport if successful.
