LONDON – Airport Lounge Development (ALD), a subsidiary of Collinson Group, and Swissport, announced the opening of Club Aspire, an exciting new lounge at London Heathrow Terminal 3, in response to a significant increase in demand for lounge access.
Located near Gate 9, Club Aspire is designed to meet the needs of discerning travellers in one of the world’s most popular airports. Club Aspire will be available to premium airline passengers of participating airlines as part of their premium tickets, and Priority Pass, LoungeKey and Lounge Club Members.
To celebrate its opening, travellers can enjoy complimentary Prosecco as an introductory offer until 31 January 2017. The brand-new lounge accommodates more than 120 passengers and incorporates the very best of contemporary design. The lounge offers a range of dedicated zones that will ensure travellers can work, rest or pamper themselves before their journey – including luxury treatments from Bliss Spa.
Errol McGlothan, Director, ALD said: “We’re excited by the opportunity to offer our Club Aspire product to Terminal 3 travellers just one year after being overwhelmed by the response of customers to our product at Heathrow Terminal 5. Club Aspire is designed around the needs of the business traveller and offers choice to independent travellers looking to make the perfect start to their journey.”
Shaun Weston, Travel Services Director, Swissport commented: “Swissport’s lounge offerings have grown steadily in popularity with the Aspire brand since it launched in 2012, and now covers many global destinations. The opening of Club Aspire gives us a presence in one of the world’s most popular airport terminals and is another step forward for Swissport. We’re pleased to have been able to combine our operational expertise with that of ALD’s to create another world class lounge facility.”
Stephen Wilkinson, Property Director, Heathrow said: “Following the success of ‘Aspire, the Lounge and Spa at LHR T5’, we are delighted to be bringing the same experience to Terminal 3 with Club Aspire. We are always looking for new ways for our customers to receive the very best experience when they fly and we hope they enjoy the newest independent lounge we have to offer.”
