Independent airport lounge group No 1 Traveller is to open a brand new lounge in Gatwick’s South Terminal at the start of February.
No 1 Traveller has been a huge success since it launched at Gatwick – almost too successful. It is now a regular occurrence for Priority Pass cardholders to be turned away from both the South and North Terminal lounges, as priority is given to pre-booked guests and airlines who use the lounges for their premium passengers. The photo below is of the existing Gatwick South lounge.
Bigger plans are afoot. A huge space next to Clubrooms, which I was allowed to peek into when I was at Gatwick on Tuesday, is being turned into a brand new No 1 Traveller lounge.
They have got a great spot, with glass walls on two sides and views over the runway. Most importantly, the new lounge will be twice the size of the existing one and will include a spa.
British Airways is moving its Gatwick operation to the South Terminal from November 2016 so many Head for Points readers will be able to try out the new lounge next year.
