British Airways Unveils New Lounge In Aberdeen

The next stage of British Airways’ £4.5bn investment plan has been unveiled as the airline opens a brand-new lounge in Aberdeen Airport.

The new lounge, located within the recently completed extension of the airport, is the second to open under the airline’s new design concept. This follows the recent unveiling of the first in the new series of lounges at Rome’s Fiumicino Airport.

The airline has created zones throughout the 380sq metre lounge to suit all customers’ needs. The lobby has been designed so that customers travelling through the lounge quickly, can get a quick bite to eat before they head off for their flight.  For those customers with more dwell time, the airline has created a relaxing ambience with seating overlooking the runway.

The lounge houses bespoke furniture and fittings such as the feature walls, lighting and marble topped tables. Similar to the airline’s new lounge in Rome, the feature piece of the lounge is the beautifully crafted granite topped bar, allowing customers to enjoy a drink from the wide range of beverages on offer.

British Airways’ new Aberdeen lounge also features local artwork from the airline’s Art Collection, including ‘The Long Winding Shores’ by Maddie Rose Hills inspired by Kinlochewe in the Scottish Highlands.

British Airways’ New York JFK Terminal 7 will be the next lounge to open under the new design concept, with improvements being made there to the customer experience at check-in. The airline also has further investment planned in Geneva, San Francisco, Johannesburg, Chicago and its lounges at Heathrow.

British Airways is investing £4.5 billion for customers over the next five years, including the installation of the best quality WiFi and power in every seat, fitting 128 long-haul aircraft with new interiors and taking delivery of 72 new aircraft. The airline is also investing £600m specifically in Club World.
