Glasgow airport has opened a new lounge inspired by the nearby Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park.
The Lomond Lounge is the fourth lounge facility at the airport, joining existing British Airways and Emirates lounges, as well as the independent Upperdeck Lounge.
Facilities include a business suite area, a staffed bar, charging points, wifi, and complimentary newspapers and magazines.
A la carte and buffet dining options range from American pancake stacks, to beef and vegan burgers, stone-baked pizza, fish and chips, a St James’ smoke salmon platter, and a paneer korma.
According to the airport “The natural colours and contemporary styling have also been balanced with a strong appreciation of Glasgow Airport’s original Basil Spence-designed architecture, with the lounge proudly housing his renowned barrel-vaulted ceilings”.
The 420 sqm lounge is located after security, via the stairs to the right of Fat Face (there is also an accessible lift across from Boot).
It has seating for 100 guests, and is open daily from 0500 to 2100. Entry costs £40 and can be booked here, or at the airport subject to availability
Commenting on the news Glasgow Airport managing director Mark Johnston said:
“My team has worked incredibly hard to deliver this project and we are all immensely proud of the Lomond Lounge. I’ve got to say that although the initial design concept images looked impressive, they don’t do it justice when you see the completed lounge.
“Given its prime location in the airport’s departures area, the lounge offers fantastic views of both the airfield and the stunning backdrop of the Campsie Fells, while raising the benchmark by providing a premium level of service and comfort.
“It’s a beautiful space and I’m sure our customers are going to be very impressed with everything this luxurious new facility will offer.”
