As we covered recently, the Aspire lounge at Luton Airport is currently closed for a major renovation.
Aspire has sent us a few CGI pictures of what we can expect from mid March when it re-opens.
If you are travelling through Luton before then, anyone with a Priority Pass or Lounge Club card should head for the Luton Airport Clubrooms lounge, reviewed here. There is a £10 supplement to get in but this is reflected in the premium food and drink offered.
As you can see, the new Aspire lounge looks impressive – very bright and airy.
We will take a look as soon as we can once it opens.

How to get FREE airport lounge access via UK credit cards (January 2021)
As a reminder, here are the three options to get FREE airport lounge access via a credit or charge card:
The Platinum Card from American Express comes with two free Priority Pass cards, one for you and one for a supplementary cardholder. Each card admits two so a family of four gets in free. You get access to all 1,300 lounges in the Priority Pass network – search it here.
The Lounge Club list is slightly shorter than the Priority Pass list. Additional visits are charged at £20. You get two more free visits for every year you keep the card. There is no annual fee in Year 1 and a 20,000 points sign-up bonus. Full details are in our American Express Preferred Rewards Gold review here.
HSBC Premier World Elite Mastercard gets you get a free LoungeKey card, allowing you access to the LoungeKey network. Guests are charged at £20 although it may be cheaper to pay £60 for a supplementary credit card for your partner.
The card has a fee of £195 and there are strict financial requirements to become a HSBC Premier customer. Full details are in my HSBC Premier World Elite Mastercard review.
