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.

Further Lounge Info

Important Information

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'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

The length of stay is dependent upon the lounge and will be clearly stated in your quote - the usual length of stay is 3 hours although there is the option to purchase an extended stay when booking your lounge visit. If your flight is delayed, we'll always do all we can to help.

Drinks, Snacks & Hot Food

Drinks and snacks are provided completely free of charge. We do ask that you enjoy the food and drink within the lounge and don't take it out.

Some items are only available at selected times of the day (ie breakfast items). Champagne and Prosecco are available for an additional charge during the booking process. Alcohol is not available to anyone under the age of 18.

Children & Infants

The lounge accepts children but we do ask that they be accompanied by an adult at all times.
