Glasgow Airport has unveiled the first design images of its exclusive new executive lounge. The Lomond Lounge will be based airside in the departures area and since its opening, which is scheduled in early August, it will be operating between 5am and 9pm daily More than £1.6 million is being invested in the plush new facility, which will create 25 new jobs.
This will be the fourth lounge facility to be based at Glasgow – the most of any Scottish airport – as the number of people looking to enjoy access to exclusive lounge facilities is on the increase. Emirates and British Airways both have their own separate facilities at Glasgow while the airport has operated its own hugely-successful UpperDeck lounge for a number of years.
“While the UpperDeck continues to be extremely popular with our business and leisure passengers, demand for lounge access continues to rise as more and more people look to start their travels in style. The potential for the site of the new Lomond Lounge was huge given its prime location in the airport's departures area and the fantastic views it offers of both the airfield and the stunning backdrop of the Campsie Fells”
The look and feel of the 4,500-square foot lounge has been inspired by the neighbouring Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park and features a mix of table service for a la carte dining and more relaxed seating areas were passengers can unwind in comfort and enjoy a snack or drink before their flight.
The lounge will include a business suite area and will feature charging outlets, high-speed WiFi, flight information displays and complimentary national newspapers and glossy magazines.
