Virgin Atlantic has released pictures of its new Clubhouse at Gatwick Airport’s North terminal.

Along with Easyjet, the airline now operates from the North terminal, with British Airways in the South terminal. As yet, there has been no announcement about the possibility of Easyjet and Virgin Atlantic moving towards a closer relationship with the possibility of through-checking of baggage and being able to book onward flights with one another.

The centre piece of the Clubhouse is a marble bar, and the airline has partnered with East London cocktail bar White Lyan for a selection of exclusive cocktails.
