There is some good news for anyone who has to use Luton Airport on a regular basis. No 1 Lounges is opening one of its superior Clubrooms lounges in July.
Clubrooms are positioned above the standard No 1 Lounges, with table service and a ban on children under 12. They are used primarily by airlines for their business class passengers – which does allow some children to get in – although it is possible to pay for entry too.
The bad new is that Clubrooms are never available via Priority Pass or any other lounge club card. At Gatwick you are allowed to pay a supplement to use Clubrooms instead of using the main No 1 Lounge for free, but I don’t know if this will be possible if there isn’t a No 1 Lounge in the first place!
The existing Aspire lounge, which we reviewed here and which has been fully refurbished in the last couple of years, will remain.
You can find out more on the Luton page of the No 1 Lounges website. Hat-tip to Business Traveller.
PS. My attempt to review the new No 1 Lounge in Edinburgh on Sunday, at the super-peak time of, erm, 2pm, was thwarted by ‘sorry we’re full’. If anyone is passing through Edinburgh and would like to do a review for us, please let me know. Assuming you have a Priority Pass, we’ll pay the £5 reservation fee to guarantee you get in!
