Southampton Airport’s new executive lounge

A brand new executive facility, called the ‘Breeze Priority Lounge’, has opened at Southampton Airport.  Located on the terminal’s first floor it is available to all departing passengers aged over 18, at a cost of just £17.50 per person and can hold up to 30 people at a time. 

Passengers who pre-book access can use the facilities for up to three hours before their flight.  The price includes; priority security access, comfortable seating, laptop and mobile phone charge points, complementary wi-fi, flight information screens, as well as a selection of high quality locally produced snacks and drinks.  Refreshments include hand-made biscuits, natural mineral water and top quality local wines all sourced from Hampshire-based award-winning companies Little Rose Bakery, Hildon Water and Wickham Vineyards. 

Southampton Airport is owned by BAA Ltd who also operates Heathrow.  However the airport is in competition with the UK’s main hub for destinations to the north and points out that passengers can transit the building in a far shorter time than Heathrow.  Parking is cheaper too and the airport has its own railway station now connected by a bridge. www.southamptonairport.com
