Where is the lounge situated?
The lounge is situated after security on the level 1 of the ‘Lounge Pavillion’ (going down two levels from the upper level that you entered). The lounge is glass fronted and enjoys an abundance of natural light throughout the day. Simply follow signs for Airport Lounges once in the main terminal area.
What food and drink does the lounge provide?
As an airport lounge, we don’t offer full meals as part of your entry but do provide a good range of snacks and hot food items (such as bacon rolls in the morning / soup and roll at lunch) to help keep you going in between.
Can I use this lounge if I am not flying from the North Terminal?
No, due to security restrictions you can only use this lounge if you are departing from the North Terminal. There is also an Aspire Lounge in the South Terminal for flights departing from there.
Does this lounge offer a quiet area for catching up on work?
Yes, this lounge has a ‘Quiet Zone’ which will enable you to sit back and relax whilst catching up on last minute business.
Does this lounge have a dress code?
We understand that all our customers want to travel in comfortable clothing with our lounges having a relaxed dress code to reflect this. We do ask that guests refrain from wearing sportswear (such as football shirts, tracksuits, baseball caps etc) and clothing with offensive slogans. Smart, tailored shorts are accepted.
How do airport lounges differ from the busy cafés or restaurants in the airport?
We are very different - Our lounges offer simple snacks and light meals away from the hustle and bustle of the main airport terminal, but we don’t offer full meals. Cafes and restaurants offer full meals within the main terminal area, however if you’ve travelled through and airport recently, you’ll know how busy these establishments can get. So if you’re looking to help yourself to a range of snacks, along with a few drinks, free WiFi, great customer service and a tranquil environment with a guaranteed seat, airport lounges are for you.
Who are airport lounges open to?
All travellers, no matter which airline or class of travel, are welcome. It’s a common misconception that you have to be a first or business class passenger to get access to an airport lounge, and this isn’t the case. We do however ask that passengers adhere to our smart casual dress code which is outlined below.
Can I earn LoungeMiles® Stamps at this lounge?
Yes you can at all UK Servisair and Aspire Lounges.
Catching your Flight
All lounges have flight information screens within the lounge and due to the number of flights departing at any one time, flight announcements aren't made by lounge staff - we'd ask you to keep an eye on when your flight leaves.

We welcome all travellers whether you are travelling economy or first class and as long as you agree to our terms and conditions of entry. We are also open to you no matter which airline you are travelling with. Do make sure that your flight leaves from the terminal you are booking.
Drinks, Snacks and Hot Food
