Escape lounge opens in Manchester

MANCHESTER AIRPORT has opened its new ‘Escape’ lounge in Terminal 1.  Over 100,000 passengers are expected to use the facility every year.  Continental breakfast is offered and snacks are available all day.  The £1.7m investment has separate areas for relaxation and business, including a self-contained meeting or private function room.  There are freshly made dishes from an on-site chef, a wide range of alcoholic and soft-drinks and for kids (of all ages!!) wii, PS3 and a giant Escape Scalectrix racetrack (something that was tried by Virgin Atlantic when it opened its first Upper Class lounge at Heathrow –Richard must have got bored with it!).  Free wi-fi is also provided.  The airport already has an ‘Escape’ offering in Terminal 2 and expects to launch a third in Terminal 3 in the near future. www.manchesterairport.co.uk
