VTravel Newsletter: Heathrow Terminal 5 Lounge
Heathrow Terminal 5 has today opened its first independent lounge.
"Aspire, the Lounge and Spa at LHR T5” is located near the terminal’s Gate A18 and is available to all passengers using the terminal, regardless of their class of travel. It is T5’s first non-British Airways’ lounge.
The 4,000 sq ft lounge is being operated by Priority Pass and ground handler Swissport. It is open daily from 05.00 to 23.00.
Priority Pass members will have access to the lounge as part of their membership, while non-members can use the lounge for three hours for £35 when booked in advance through executivelounges.com or £40 at reception on the day, subject to availability.
The lounge, which was first announced in April, features windows on two sides overlooking the runway, a British-inspired seasonal food and drink menu including both complimentary and premium options for an extra charge, and the Bliss Spa at Aspire offering a range of facials, manicures and pedicures with appointments of either 20 or 40 minutes.
Other facilities include ‘rest pod’ reclining loungers, workstations with wifi, charging posts, showers and dedicated quiet zones. John Harding, MD of V.Travel commented, “This is a useful addition to the services at T5, especially for those travellers who fly regularly on alternative carriers".
