British Airways has recently launched its new lounge named Aberdeen after it has closed its earlier one in 2017 during summer. The newly revamped lounge is a significant part of refurbishment at the airport.
Following the concept of Rome’s Fiumicino Airport, the Aberdeen is the second lounge launched under the ‘new concept design’ of the airport.
Aberdeen lounge is built in 380m2 area and features all the comforts for passengers. There are zones where travelers can enjoy mouth-watering cuisines, drinks as well as get quick access to toilets. For passengers to enjoy longer stays, special zones with seating arrangements overlooking the runway are constructed. On a daily basis, BA handles eight jetliners from Aberdeen to Heathrow.
Beautifully embellished with the local art pieces which are mainly from the collection of the airline itself. These include ‘The Long Winding Shores’, an exclusive artwork by Maddie Rose Hills which is an inspiration from Kinlochewe in the Scottish Highlands. To talk precisely, the major highlight of the lounge is its granite-topped bar. Passengers taking the early morning flights are fortunate to enjoy Aberdeen Rowies.
Sarah Klatt-Walsh, Head of the Product stated, ‘We are pleased to open the Aberdeen lounge. It’s a part of our £4.5bn investment programme. He added, the airline’s new concept design is precisely developed in order to use the spaces in the lounge in a much unique manner, while giving it a much luxurious and contemporary feel. Furthermore, technology always remains our main focus. There’s complimentary Wi-Fi as well as ample access to power points and USB to let passengers surf, work and charge their devices at the same time. The positive feedback from customers have shown that they have fallen in love with the revamped lounge’s look and feel.’
British Airlines stated they have plans to open a new lounge in New York JFK Terminal 7. Furthermore, the carrier has future plans for San Francisco, Geneva, Chicago, Johannesburg as well as lounges in Heathrow.
