Do you arrive at the airport with so much time to spare that you overspend in shops and cafes to fill the time, or sit around bored? Or are you the passenger called for over the speaker to board your plane? If either of these sound like you, booking an airport lounge will help you to manage your time and get your trip off to a stress-free start.
If you have never used an airport lounge before, you might be wondering if it is worth trying one out. Here we look at the benefits of booking into Aspire Lounge at Luton Airport compared to the facilities available in the terminal itself.
Complimentary Facilities at Aspire Lounge Luton
- Hot and cold beverages, including alcoholic drinks
- Snacks and some light bites available (eg bacon roll or omelette at breakfast and sandwiches, salads, pasta or soup at lunch)
- Newspapers and magazines
- Flight information screens
- Rest pods
- Shower facilities
- Laptop/phone charging facilities, pay telephone and fax services
In addition, this airport lounge has disabled access, allows children and has air conditioning. For a more substantial meal, there is a premium menu on offer at an additional cost. Guests can also take advantage of 10% off spa treatments at the Bliss Spa located in the lounge. And best of all, you get up to 3 hours’ access to the lounge, escaping the hustle and bustle of the crowded airport terminal.
Luton Airport Aspire Lounge prices start from £25.99 per person.
Amenities in Luton Airport Terminal
You could, of course, find some of these facilities in Luton’s airport terminal itself. Here we look at some of the associated costs.
Food: There are a handful of bars and cafes before and after security, and 3 restaurants after. The cheapest pasta dish at Frankie and Benny’s will set you back £9.95, and a bowl of soup at Bella Italia is £5.99.
Drink: A drink in one of the terminal bars comes in at £4.90 for a pint of the cheapest beer, and £1.75 for a small glass of white wine. Or you could opt for an espresso or pot of tea, costing from £2.10 in the restaurants, and more in the coffee shops.
Newspapers and magazines: Newspapers cost between 55p for a daily, up to £2.50 for some Sunday editions. And magazines range from 76p to £5.99.
To summarise, in the terminal, you could get pasta, an espresso, 2 pints of beer, and an averaged priced newspaper and magazine for the same price as the total cost per person in the lounge, if you shop around. But, in the lounge you can have unlimited hot, cold and alcoholic beverages (within reason!) and an ambient, relaxing space.
The comfortable, peaceful surroundings of an airport lounge will get your trip off to a stress-free start. So, whether you need to work or simply relax, pre-book your airport lounge access with us and start your trip in comfort and style.
