The new Plaza Premium lounge at Edinburgh Airport now has a firm opening date – Thursday 1st September.

This will, I believe, use the space which used to be occupied by No1 Lounge, on the upper level by Gate 13.

A couple of CGI images have appeared on the Plaza Premium website:

The only thing we know so far is that the lounge will contain ‘a signature Edinburgh Gin Bar’ and a play area for children, as well as the usual buffet etc.

If you pre-book entry for cash for any date in September, you can save 15% vs the ‘on the door’ price. Take a look at the Plaza Premium Edinburgh website here.

The opening hours are 4.30am to 8pm, seven days per week.

Full price entry appears to be £44. This reduces to £39.60 for online bookings from October (10% off), and £37.40 for September (15% off, the discount is automatically applied).

Is it worth £44? We’ll take a look as soon as we can.

How to use a lounge club card at Plaza Premium Edinburgh

Plaza Premium is not part of Priority Pass or its sister scheme Lounge Key.

It is part of DragonPass, if you have one of those via your Barclays or NatWest bank accounts or have bought one direct. We showed you how to get a free DragonPass card in this article which allows you to pay just £19 per lounge visit.

You can also enter Plaza Premium lounges with an American Express Platinum card. You need to show your Platinum card (not your Priority Pass card) at the entrance. You are allowed one free guest.

If you don’t have an Amex Platinum or DragonPass card, you can prebook for cash, saving 15% for visits in September, here.

    RBS Black issue DragonPass so presumably a higher than UK average proportion of Edinburgh-based frequent flyers will have DP cards.

    Looks like a decent lounge though, the No1 was a good space and put together to a pretty high standard so not too concerned if Plaza Premium have reused the existing fixtures and fittings.

      Good point Stu, about the number of potential DP holders in Edinburgh. Darn. Fingers crossed the lounge won’t be overwhelmed and turning us away in same way as Escape lounge.
      Will PP lounge be bookable, as No1 used to be?
