Packages of up to three hours at the lounge at Gatwick Airport start from £18.50 and offer food, drink, wi-fi, and charging points.

The new jointly branded The Gateway by EasyJet & No1 Lounge opens tomorrow and EasyJet says it will provide customers with an ideal space to work or just relax ahead of their trip. The lounge has a quiet work zone and also facilities to keep children entertained.

The lounge can be booked in advance or on the day through EasyJet’s partnership with Holiday Extras. A range of one, two and three-hour packages are available with prices starting from £18.50.

The lounge will offer customers a choice of complementary hot and cold menus freshly prepared and served to tables, alongside a range of self-serve side dishes and hot and cold drinks. Destination-inspired signature dishes, which change every quarter, will be offered for those wishing to get an authentic taste of Europe before they jet-off. The lounge also has its own signature cocktail list.

The launch comes as EasyJet reports that business travel is returning to easyJet.

Rachael Smith, commercial proposition and innovation director for easyJet, said: “We are delighted to be launching our very first airport lounge in partnership with No1 Lounges to serve passengers at London Gatwick, where we’re proud to be the largest airline.

“We’re always looking for opportunities to offer travellers more choice and great value, so we’re proud that The Gateway will be able to offer something for everyone whether it’s all the essentials for a workspace, somewhere comfortable to relax before jetting off or to entertain the family.

“The launch is timely as we are seeing the recovery begin in the UK, not only for leisure travel where winter sun destinations are proving popular once again, but for business travellers too, who are returning in their biggest numbers since before the pandemic.

“Whatever the reason for travel, we are confident that the lounge will provide the perfect destination for customers wanting to get their trip off to a perfect start.”

All passengers travelling through London Gatwick Airport North Terminal can book to use the lounge regardless of airline or travel ticket class. They can also arrive without a booking and present their easyJet boarding pass on entry to the lounge.
