Hot on the heels of its Terminal 4 arrivals lounge which opened in April, Plaza Premium has unveiled its new Arrivals Lounge in the landside area of Heathrow Terminal 3.
Regular Head for Points readers will know that I rate Plaza Premium highly. They invest a lot of money into their facilities, especially in design, and they have a genuinely high end feel. The group also manages the outstanding Cathay Pacific business and first class lounges in Heathrow Terminal 3 reviewed here.
I have reviewed (click to read):
and liked them all. The Terminal 2 arrivals lounge is pretty small – although it does have shower facilities – but the two departure lounges are very spacious. I haven’t made it to the Terminal 4 Arrivals Lounge yet but it is on the list.
There is also a Terminal 5 departure lounge on the way for the end of 2017 which will hopefully be better than the Aspire lounge. Construction is already underway.
The new Terminal 3 lounge – which I think is on the site of the old Delta arrivals lounge – has 11 shower rooms and a lounge and bar area. The seating total is given as 28 which seems oddly low, given that the Terminal 4 arrivals lounge has 75 seats.
How to get in
The lounge is NOT available via Priority Pass (for Amex Platinum cardholders) or Lounge Club (for Amex Gold cardholders) websites. You can get it in by showing your American Express Platinum card at the door, however.
You can also pre-book access for cash via their website here.
