Here is advance notice that we are running another exciting competition next week on Head for Points.

To celebrate the move of the final airlines into the new Terminal 2 at Heathrow last month, we have teamed up with the Plaza Premium lounge in Terminal 2 to offer seven prize packages, each worth £80.

Each winner will receive entry to a Plaza Premium lounge at Heathrow PLUS a 30-minute ila signature massage in their impressive spa.

Even if you can already access the Plaza Premium lounge via Priority Pass or Lounge Club, the added bonus of the massage means that it is still worth entering.  Winners can choose to receive either one or two prize packages depending on whether they normally travel with a partner or alone.

Plaza Premium Heathrow 2

The prize will be valid in any of the following three lounges:

Plaza Premium departure lounge in Heathrow Terminal 2 (now open)

Plaza Premium arrivals lounge in Heathrow Terminal 2 (opening later in 2014)

Plaza Premium departure lounge in Heathrow Terminal 4 (opening in early 2015)

The vouchers will be valid until May 2015, so if you are likely to be using Terminal 2 or Terminal 4 before then – or are willing to come over to the Terminal 2 arrivals lounge from another terminal – you should definitely enter.

Full details of how to win will be on Head for Points on Monday.
