EasyJet is opening its first airport lounge at Gatwick. Access charges start at £18.50 for the Gateway facility in the North Terminal, created in collaboration with No1 Lounges.
This is a big step for EasyJet which has originally been perceived as a Low-Cost Airline, who are now evolving very much into working in the business travel market.
Bookings are being made available in advance via EasyJet's partnership with Holiday Extras and are available to book through your Business Travel Consultant here at Good Travel Management.
The Gateway will offer hot and cold menus, alongside self-serve side dishes and hot and cold drinks. Free wi-fi and areas to work with charging points are featured as well as a TV den and games room for families.
The opening comes as the airline reports that business travel is returning.
Commercial proposition and innovation director Rachael Smith said: “We’re always looking for opportunities to offer travellers more choice and great value, so we’re proud that The Gateway will be able to offer something for everyone whether it’s all the essentials for a workspace, somewhere comfortable to relax before jetting off or to entertain the family. 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.”
