The Business Lounge is housed in a newly transformed area of the airport’s Private Jet Centre, easily accessible from the main terminal via a private taxi shuttle.
Passengers travelling on any airline can enjoy the discreet, quiet atmosphere of the Business Lounge and the opportunity to relax and rejuvenate, with a complimentary selection of cold food, snacks, refreshments, and alcoholic beverages in the fully catered lounge.
The stylish interior surroundings are designed with comfort and convenience in mind, with hand-made furniture from sofa.com, a flat screen TV, and charging points. Free hi-speed Wi-Fi, ensures passengers can catch up on emails and stay connected before they depart to one of the 45 destinations served by London City Airport.
Chris Clayton, London City Airport Jet Centre Customer Service Manager, said:
“London City Airport’s new Business Lounge is the perfect option for passengers who want first class hospitality, comfort and privacy.
“Our priority is our passengers and the team will always go the extra mile to ensure they have what they need to keep their airport experience memorable and stress-free.”
Located less than 5 minutes from the terminal, passengers are required to check-in any hold luggage before taking the complimentary private shuttle to the Private Jet Centre with their boarding pass.
When the time comes for departure, a minimum of 30 minutes is required to allow sufficient time for passengers to return to the terminal on the private transfer, pass through airport security, and board their flight.
The Business Lounge covers an area of 50 square metres and is capable of accommodating up to thirty passengers. Shower facilities are available, along with a meeting room space available for hire.
The new Lounge compliments the existing First Class Lounge option, which includes the added convenience of easy baggage drop and discreet security clearance with no queues, before a transfer to the steps of the aircraft. The First Class Lounge is £95 per person and is available for seven of the airport’s eleven airlines.
In 2016 London City Airport welcomed 4.5 million passengers, with around 52% travelling for business purposes – proportionally more than any other airport in London.
