Cumbria’s Ast Signs helped London Southend Airport open their new terminal in time to receive visitors for the London 2012 Olympics this summer. All the signs and cut vinyl, including a 60ft vinyl wall wrap were designed and printed at Ast Signs’ head office in the North West.
Ast Signs' specialist designers have created a distinct look for the brand new terminal at London Southend Airport; passengers can view the design on assorted products throughout the airport terminal when it becomes fully operational at the end of February. Inside the terminal, one of the items supplied by Ast Signs is an impressive 60 metre, full colour printed wall wrap. The Ast Signs fitters required various high access equipment to reach the top of the building and manoeuvre their way around obstacles, including an escalator.
Ast Signs have provided over 2,000 square metres of print, signage and dibond panels cut to shape along with large flat cut lettering that has been added to the new rail station at the airport. When guests arrive at the front of the new airport terminal they are welcomed by 60 metres of one-way vision window film which has been applied to the striking floor to ceiling glass windows at the terminal. The graphics contain tiny holes so that guests who are sitting in the lounge won’t have their view obstructed.
The new terminal building at London Southend Airport, Essex is only 53 minutes from central London via train and over the next few months will run flights to a range of different European destinations including; Belfast, Jersey, Ireland, Faro, Barcelona and Ibiza, flying with easyjet and Aer-Arran. Future plans for the airport include a 300m extension to the current new terminal and a new hotel.
