London's Heathrow International Airport is celebrating 70 years of travel with its new ad 'First Flight.' The ad features a little girl named Harriett and her travel companion, which happens to be a mini rolling suitcase with a wide-eyed owl on the front.

First Flight captures the heartwarming story of the little girl's first flight, from waking up early to arriving at the airport. Harriett is seen putting on her very own aviator hat and goggles, although she substitutes swim goggles for aviation ones for a very Amelia Earhart-esque look. The adorable little girl and her equally cute luggage companion are a reminder of the wonder and excitement of adventure.

Quantas is hosting a contest for people to share their favorite Heathrow memories to celebrate the airport's 70-year history.
