The new British Airways Galleries lounge at Gatwick’s South Terminal is not yet open.

In a statement today British Airways said

“We are giving our customers a warm welcome to their world-class new home at South Terminal, with a stunning new check-in area, using the very latest technology to offer the smoothest-possible experience.

We are offering our premium customers alternative lounge accommodation while the finishing touches are made to our world-class new lounge.

We know our customers have high standards, and we want to make sure the experience is 100 per cent ready for them. We know they will enjoy the sweeping views across the runway, 40 per cent larger space and dedicated area for our First and Gold customers, and when our new lounge opens in the next few days.”

Virgin Atlantic’s new lounges (there are two) are open at the North Terminal.

According to a post on Flyertalk,

The temporary arrangements for British Airways’ passengers at the South Terminal are:

“First travellers and Goldcard holders can use the No. 1 Lounge. Also New York, Bermuda and Jersey passengers can use this lounge too.

Club Europe, Club World and Silver travellers can use the Speedbird Lounge, a temporary provision in the former Virgin Clubroom area”.
