EasyJet is offering lounge access for FLEXIfare customers flying from London Gatwick. According to the airline, which operates daily flights between Gibraltar and the London airport, the offer is being trialled until 30 November.
From 1 September, all FLEXIfare customers can enjoy pre-departure access to EasyJet’s The Gateway Lounge, which was opened last summer as the first airport lounge in collaboration with No1 Lounges at Gatwick’s North Terminal. The lounge is open every day from 6am.
In a news release, EasyJet said, “The lounge offers a sanctuary from the hustle and bustle of the airport and will allow business and leisure passengers an opportunity to unwind before jetting off. Passengers will be able to sip on a freshly brewed coffee, unwind with a wine, or enjoy a full buffet offering.
“The Gateway Lounge also offers an ideal space for those needing to catch up with some work with complimentary Wi-Fi, convenient charging points and quiet spaces, and caters to families with a TV den and games room available, ensuring the little ones are kept entertained during their wait for flights.”
The Gateway Lounge can also be booked in advance by all EasyJet customers through the airline’s exclusive partnership with Holidays Extras, or customers can book in on the day of travel. A range of one, two and three-hour packages is available, with prices starting from £18.99.
EasyJet’s FLEXIfare is a bundled fare offering customers additional benefits including a large cabin bag, a 23-kilogram hold bag, free “Up Front” seat, use of the dedicated EasyJet Plus bag drop, fast-track security, speedy boarding, free flight and route changes, and an Eat.Drink.Shop voucher.
“We are always looking for new ways to offer travellers more choice and great value,” said UK country manager Ali Gayward, “so we’re delighted to have launched this trial… in addition to the great range of extras our customers enjoy when they book a FLEXIfare.
“The Gateway Lounge offers all the essentials to make work a breeze, or somewhere for the whole family to relax and unwind before jetting off. So, whatever the reason for travel, the lounge is the destination for customers wanting to get their trip off to a perfect start.”
