This is my review of the new Aspire lounge at Edinburgh Airport.
I featured the new No 1 Traveller lounge at Edinburgh International Airport a couple of months ago. I also wrote about the new British Airways Galleries lounge.
At the same time, Servisair was busy rebuilding its existing Edinburgh lounge via a conversion to its new ‘Aspire’ concept.
Reader Alan was there a couple of weeks ago and took a few photographs for us. It looks impressive and a substantial step forward from the old Servisair offering.
Ironically, if you have a Priority Pass card, Servisair actually pays you money to visit! If you get a free LoungeMiles loyalty card, you earn one stamp for every visit to Servisair / Aspire lounge. Earn five stamps and you can swap it for a £5 shopping voucher.
Here are a few pictures of the Edinburgh Aspire lounge:
(EDIT: some of the photos in this review were updated in 2017 as the food selection has been improved)
Lounge Club membership comes with the American Express Preferred Rewards Gold card, which is free for the first year. You receive two free passes to visit any Lounge Club lounge and further visits or further guests are charged at £15.
Priority Pass membership comes with the American Express Platinum card. Both the main cardholder and one supplementary cardholder receive a Priority Pass, and each card admits two people for free. This means that you can get four people into a lounge for free if both the main and supplementary cardholder are travelling together.
If you don’t have any of these cards, your best option is to book in advance and guarantee admission via the Aspire website here.
