Manchester T1 Aspire Lounge opens

The much-anticipated reopening of Manchester Airport’s Aspire Lounge last week was a further indication that both business travel and a requirement for more select facilities by leisure travellers is beginning to return.

It joins Belfast City, Gatwick North, Heathrow T5 and Newcastle as both business and leisure traffic attempts to get back to normal.  

Manchester Airport lounge has fully kitted out Work Booths for those travelling on business.

The Aspire Lounge at Manchester Terminal 1 also boasts Family Booths, each equipped with their own Smart TV, allowing customers to pick the channel they want to watch.  Staff have been specially tasked with offering a remote control to children so that they can view the programme of their choice on the Smart TV.

After Passport Control, proceed through Duty Free and follow the signs “Executive Lounges”.  Turn left in-between Next and Dixons.  Take stairs to the floor above. The apron view is the best at the airport.

The British Airways lounge at Newcastle Airport will not re-open and has closed permanently but with the Aspire lounge at Newcastle Airport now back in operation eligible BA customers can use the facility.  It is also open for Dragon Pass and Priority Pass card holders, but not on a pre-booked basis.
