United Airlines has reopened its United Club lounge at London Heathrow’s Terminal 2.
The lounge closed in March 2020 as a result of the pandemic and the reduction in schedules. Star Alliance passengers flying from Terminal 2 had been using other lounges which were open such as the Singapore Airlines and Lufthansa lounges, as well as the Air Canada lounge which reopened at the end of October 2021.
The reopening of the lounge comes as US traffic increases slowly.
The lounge is opposite Gate B46 and is open for passengers travelling in United’s Polaris business class, United Club members, as well as First and Business class customers who are holding boarding passes for same-day travel on flights operated by other Star Alliance carriers departing from Heathrow.

“We are so pleased to offer our premium customers access to our Heathrow lounge once again,” said Bob Schumacher, United’s Director Sales, United Kingdom and Ireland. “I know just how much our customers appreciate this fantastic lounge. Our lounge experience provides comfort and relaxation, as well as excellent food and drink, shower facilities and workspace.”
United Airlines recently announced the addition of five new flights from London Heathrow Airport, including two more flights to New York/Newark, additional services to both Denver and San Francisco, as well as an all-new direct flight to Boston which is set to start in March 2022.
In the next few weeks, United will operate ten daily nonstop flights from London Heathrow to the US: four daily flights to New York/Newark, two daily flights to Washington DC and Chicago and one daily flight to Houston and San Francisco.
