Airport lounges are becoming big business with Regus, the office service providers, the latest company to offer accommodation. (See BTN 28 April) Regus says the move responds to a growing demand for ‘third place’ work locations where business travellers can check their emails, hold conference calls and meetings and print documents.
Regus Express offers a quiet, professional business lounge with a co-working space, private workstations, known as ‘ThinkPods’ and secure wi-fi, as well as meeting rooms available by the hour. Planned to open over the coming months are landside lounges at Birmingham and Gatwick airports.
At the south London airport a drop-in business lounge and meeting room centre is planned near the South Terminal arrivals area, in addition to workspace airside next to the departure gates.
A Heathrow Regus is already functioning close by T5, located on the Western Perimeter Road from junction 14 of the M25 or via junction 4b of the M4 with its own separate access.
The lounges are modelled on the successful concept already open at the Cobham Motorway Service area. www.regus.co.uk/locations/business-lounge/heathrow-terminal-5-regus-express
