No1 Lounges has announced plans to treble the number of lounges at UK airports by the end of 2020.

The group currently has eight lounges across Birmingham, Edinburgh, Gatwick and Heathrow airports, and says this will double to 16 by the end of next year, and 24 by the end of 2020.

The airport lounge operator has not specified where the new lounges will be located, although it said that they will be “at airports where No1 already has a presence and some entirely new locations”.

The group operates three different types of lounges (My Lounge, No1 Lounges and Clubrooms) with entry starting from £18, and recorded turnover of “23 million last year, in an industry estimated to be worth £3.4 billion globally.

No1 Lounges recently launched its newest Clubrooms brand at Gatwick’s North and South Terminals (pictured above). The high-end concept offers white-linen a la carte dining, champagne and cocktails, with entry costing £40 per person.

“Premium travel is changing rapidly – it is no longer just about turning left when you board the plane,” said Phil Cameron, Founder and CEO of No1 Lounges.

“Passengers are increasingly looking for affordable luxuries and more personalised experiences, especially as many airlines are streamlining their offerings in order to compete.

We believe it is about giving consumers greater choices and a stylish send-off – all without breaking the bank.”
