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.
Catching your Flight
Flight information screens are visible from within the lounge, due to the number of flights departing at any one time, flight announcements aren’t made by lounge staff. We ask you to keep an eye on when your flight leaves.
We’re open to all Travellers
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
Drinks and snacks are provided completely free of charge and are available for you to help yourself although we do ask that you enjoy the food and drink in the lounge and don’t take it out. Food selection varies and is seasonal and variable according to the time of departure. Alcohol is not available to people under the age of 18.
After Emigration, follow directional signage to gates 7-30, passing through the duty-free concourse area. The lounge is on the left just before the escalator to the International Pier.
We understand that all our customers want to travel in comfortable clothing with our lounges having a relaxed dress code to reflect this.
Length of Stay
You are welcome to utilise our facilities for up to 4 hours. Rebook it if you need a longer stay.
Children and Infants
The lounge accepts children but we do ask that they are accompanied by an adult at all times. Children are charged at half fee and infants have free access.
