More news in brief:
Don’t miss our one-day competition tomorrow
On Monday, Head for Points is giving away a £100 Heathrow shopping voucher. This is valid in participating shops, restaurants and bars at the airport.
The competition is being sponsored by Official Heathrow Parking. This is the dedicated airport parking service run directly by Heathrow Airport. If you are primarily concerned with convenience, Offical Heathrow Parking is by far the easiest parking solution at the airport – letting you park as near as 45 metres from the terminals.
And, at Terminal 5, you can use the cool driverless pods to get to you and from the terminal and the ‘pod parking’ car park!
Don’t forget to visit HFP tomorrow. You will need to be a UK resident and physically present in the UK to enter.
Second Hyatt Place coming to Heathrow
Hyatt has announced that a second Hyatt Place hotel at Heathrow to complement the existing property in Hayes, will open in 2017.
This hotel will actually be close to the airport! The company is converting the little known Heathrow Hotel Bath Road, pictured below, into a 350 room Hyatt Place property. This was previously the Arora International Hotel Heathrow Airport. It seems that the existing hotel will remain open whilst the work is undertaken.
Using LoungeKey at the Aspire lounge, Heathrow Terminal 5
Following my article yesterday about Lounge Club cards – offered free with American Express Gold – now being accepted at the Aspire lounge in Heathrow Terminal 5, it appears that the lounge has also joined LoungeKey.
The main user of LoungeKey in the UK is HSBC via the HSBC Premier World Elite MasterCard. Access to the Aspire lounge in Terminal 5 may make the £195 annual fee for this card look better value.
