All travellers are welcome at the Aspire Lounge (Gate 16) at Edinburgh Airport, irrespective of class or airline. Make sure your holiday gets off to the best possible start by booking with the newest Edinburgh Airport Lounge today. The lounge is conveniently located in the north-east of the terminal above Pret a Manger with easy access to all gates, but best placed for those with flights from gates 12-29.


The brand new Aspire Lounge at Edinburgh Airport has been designed for comfort and to help you start your trip in style. We've compiled our many years worth of customer feedback and airport lounge experience and knowledge and poured it into designing a lounge which considers all our guests' needs, from the lounge's atmospheric ambient lighting to seating styles and plans. You will also notice this brand new Aspire Lounge at Edinburgh has local touches throughout. 

We understand that guests travel for all sorts of reasons and purposes, and we consider this when designing our Aspire Lounges. We have Work Booths for those travelling on business, which work as your office away from the office, fully kitted out with everything you need. 

Our free and unlimited Wifi service in the lounge allows you to catch up on those last minute emails, or even download the latest, bestselling book.

We also have table-side charging facilities for your portable devices, to ensure you're fully charged for your flight. There are a variety of complimentary magazines and newspapers you can flick through and browse before your flight.

Further to this, we offer a Family Booth area, allowing you to sit back, relax and enjoy some family time in comfort before your flight.

Maybe a good view is your thing? If so, you won’t be disappointed at this lounge with amazing views to enjoy across the airfield and overlooking Edinburgh.


One of the most important features of any airport lounge is having freshly prepared complimentary food dishes, snacks and beverages to enjoy before your flight.  


 To view what hot food, snacks and drinks will be on offer to you during your next lounge visit, please view our menu. 


Want something a little extra? No problem, this lounge also provides Champagne and Prosecco which is available to purchase at the lounge.


PressReader, a digital news stand, is available at this lounge, allowing you to access to the largest selection of newspapers and magazines from over 120 countries in over 60 languages. That’s 7,000+ trusted publications on a single platform. Readers can instantly translate articles in up to 18 languages.

PressReader is a complementary service at this lounge and is accessed via the lounge WiFi. To access PressReader, please follow these steps:

  • Log onto the Aspire Lounge WiFi network
  • Once on the WiFi either open up an internet browser and visit pressreader.com or go to your App store on your device and download the PressReader App to start viewing your favourite publications.

By downloading the PressReader App in the lounge, you can download and keep any publications on your device even after you disconnect from the WiFi and leave the lounge, meaning your in-flight reading materials are all sorted, and they’re yours to keep! 


Happily, we provide two airport lounges at Edinburgh Airport, this one and Aspire Lounge (Gate 4). We advise pre-booking your visit to these lounges, particularly in summer months as far in advance as possible to ensure entry. 

To get the best Edinburgh Airport Lounge deals, we advise booking on this website ExecutiveLounges.com as booking direct gives you much more, including: free delay cover, access to our amazing customer service team, exclusive senior discount and much more. 

If you are travelling from gates 10 - 29, we would recommend this lounge to you. However, if you are travelling from gates 1 - 9 we would recommend the Aspire Lounge (Gate 4) as this is located closer to your departure gate.

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.

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.

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.

Does this lounge have a view?

Yes! And a spectacular view at that, from the comfort of your seat in the lounge you can see panoramic views of the edge of the runway at Edinburgh Airport and views across Edinburgh.

Important Information

Cardholder Pre-Bookings Access

Please note, if you have reserved a place at this lounge using a cardholder scheme,  you will be asked to present your card in addition to this confirmation upon arrival at the lounge. Anyone who fails to provide a valid card, will be denied entry to the lounge.

If you have reserved for more than one person, but do not have enough credits on your card for this on the day, you will be asked to pay the walk up price at the lounge or you will be denied entry; in this circumstance the £5 booking charge would be non-refundable.


As you're booking direct through us (executivelounges.com), you are covered for delays if and when they occur. This means that should your flight be delayed for any reason, you and your booked party will be welcome to stay in the lounge until your flight departs or the lounge closes. 

Charging Points

Drinks, Snacks & Hot Food

We're Open to All Travelers

We welcome all travelers whether you are travelling economy or first class and as long as you agree to our terms and conditions of entry and have a valid boarding pass. 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.

Length of Stay

Standard stay time in our lounges is 3 hours prior to the scheduled departure time of your flight. If your flight is delayed, and have booked directly with us, you can remain in the lounge through our Guaranteed Delay Cover, until your flight is ready to board.

Getting to the Gate

To maintain a calm and peaceful ambience in our lounges, we don’t make flight announcements. Please make sure that you keep an eye on the flight information screens and leave enough time to get from the lounge to the gate.
