Bournemouth Airport is getting an executive lounge

Links on Head for Points may pay us an affiliate commission. A list of partners is here.

Bournemouth Airport has announced plans to open its first Executive Lounge on 1st June.

The picture below is taken from some pre-design work and is not necessarily going to be the final look but it seems fairly ambitious.

Pre-booking is available for £21.95 via the airport website here.  There is no word yet as to whether Priority Pass or Lounge Club will be accepted but I would be surprised if they are not.

Bournemouth Airport Premium Lounge

Sold by Manchester Airports Group in 2017, the airport is now owned by Rigby Group.  Rigby also owns Norwich, Exeter, and Coventry Airports and has management contracts to operate Solent, City of Derry and Blackpool Airports.

  1. OT – Curve!

    Received my new Metal card today and activated it on the app, and my surprise they have cut my annual spend limit! I paid £150 for the card on the basis of having Amex support and higher spend limits (they advertised up to £1.4m a year). As we all know, Amex support has already been removed, but now they’ve reduced my annual spend limit by 60%, from £100k to £40k!! Incredible.

    Has anyone else had their limit reduced after ‘upgrading’ to the Metal card?

    • Yes, down from £50K to £10K

      • Unbelievable. You pay for their premium product and get your spend limit slashed! I’ve already been waiting 6 days for a response from their customer service for a different issue.

    • The Savage Squirrel says:

      Chances of me applying for Curve upgrade now zero.

    • New post on the Curve blog today about introducing payment protection… talk about rearranging the deckchairs!

      The first para tickled me – “We’ve all been there. You order something online and the goods received aren’t quite as expected” Like a Curve Metal card, perhaps.

  2. OT as bits: IHG do you get extra 25.000 points every year you requalify as spire or is it “first time and once gift”?

  3. OT – Curve

    Last week’s launch FAQs have now been updated. Those who upgraded to Metal because of AMEX will be allowed to cancel and revert back to Legacy Black and have their £150 refunded.

    “I upgraded to Metal due to Amex, can I cancel and become grandfathered?

    Yes, you can. Customer Support will help you downgrade your account and refund your money. You will not be subjected to the Curve Metal Card Fee described in chapter 5.6.4.1. of our Terms of Service. Please note that your Curve Metal will be deactivated.”

  4. OT but Eurostar, Ebbsfleet has a business lounge now. Accepts Amex Plat and of course business premier and carte blanche status.

    • Genghis says:

      Not too sure exactly how long the lounge has been there but for the last couple of years anyway since I’ve been using Ebbsfleet. I use St P when leaving from the office but now always Ebbsfleet to/from home. It’s so much more convenient.

  5. Alex Cruz in “quickest way to attract bad publicity, in shortest time” challenge:

    • I was going to run this yesterday but it isn’t actually true – well, it is but not as general policy. Just seems to be a test to see what would happen if, during timetable disruption, they did not clean aircraft to improve turnaround.

  6. Just flying back from Sydney – Qantas First Lounge here puts CCR to shame! Superb massage and food with great views 🙂
