How long can I stay in the lounge?

This varies by lounge. At the majority of lounges, it is 3 hours prior to flight departure. This information will be clearly displayed on the first step of the booking process as well as on each individual lounge page.

Your time in the lounge may also be limited by lounge opening and closing times. These times are again detailed on the individual lounge page.

If you would like to enter the lounge for more than 3 hours before your flight departure time, this would needs to be booked as an extended stay. 

In order to book for an extended stay, for example to book a 6 hours time slot, you would need to make 2 separate bookings via our website. The best way to do this is as follows:
Example: You are wanting to access the lounge from 8:00am-14:00pm
When making the first booking you will need to put down that the flight time is 14:00pm, this will then give you access from 11:00am (3 hour time slot)
The 2nd booking you make you will need to input the flight time as 11:00am, this will then gain you access from 08:00am (3 hour time slot)....which now in total has given you a full 6 hours of continuous stay.

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.

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.
