EasyJet to open lounge at London Gatwick

EasyJet will open the doors to its first airport lounge, The Gateway, at London Gatwick tomorrow (October 21).

The lounge is opening in collaboration with No1 Lounges at Gatwick’s North Terminal, where easyJet is the largest airline.

The lounge can be booked in advance through easyJet’s exclusive partnership with Holiday Extras or customers can book on the day of travel.

Passengers can book packages of one, two or three hours with prices starting from £18.50.

They can choose from a selection of complementary hot and cold menus, served to their tables, alongside a range of self-serve side dishes and hot and cold drinks.

Destination-inspired signature dishes will change every quarter and there will also be a signature cocktail list.     

For business travellers there is free WiFi and areas to work, with convenient charging points, while families can enjoy a TV den and games room.   

Rachael Smith, easyJet Commercial Proposition & Innovation Director, said: “The launch is timely as we are seeing the recovery begin in the UK, not only for leisure travel where winter sun destinations are proving popular once again but for business travellers too, who are returning in their biggest numbers since before the pandemic.

“Whatever the reason for travel, we are confident that the lounge will provide the perfect destination for customers wanting to get their trip off to a perfect start.”

Shaun Weston, Managing Director of No1 Lounges, added: “We are anticipating that this lounge will be extremely popular during the travel renaissance as we recover from challenging times.  We can’t wait to introduce and welcome a new audience to the world of airport lounging.”
