Regus at T5

The new Regus Express Terminal 5 executive lounge  is very much meeting expectations according to Phil Kemp, who heads up ‘Third Place’ the international office provider’s approach to flexible working. (see BTN 18 August)

He cites the example two women executives who came over from Amsterdam to Heathrow for the day, walked straight into the nine room Regus suite just by arrivals, landside, and immersed themselves into a series of interviews which took place all day.  In the evening they flew home.

“No overnight accommodation and transfer costs, nor the use of a hotel not really geared up for their needs, “he said. “We are a specialist company meeting specialist requirements.” They were very pleased with the way it workout.

The lounge is sited close by the BA arrivals facility and VIP area on the first floor.  It can be hired by the hour (from 06:00 until 19:00).  It offers meeting rooms for up to 18 delegates, high speed wi-fi, refreshments and full office facilities.

Regus plans new openings at both Gatwick and Birmingham airports by the year end.  Talking to the media last week Ryanair’s Kenny Jacobs said Regus could also feature in the airlines plans to attract more business travellers.  See in this issue Ryanair and the business flyer www.regus.co.uk/locations/business-centre/heathrow-terminal-5-regus-express
