Bristol airport’s two lounges have been rebranded under Manchester Airport Group’s (MAG) Escape and 1903 brands.
The facilities had previously operated under the Aspire and Aspire Plus brands, but a press release from the airport confirms that going forward the lounges will be operated by CAVU, a subsidiary of MAG.
Both spaces are located on the mezzanine floor at Bristol airport, with the 1903 Lounge now available to guests, and the Escape Lounge available for pre-booking for entry from June 1.
The airport has also confirmed that the facilities will undergo a period of refurbishment this winter “to bring both lounges in line with the Escape and 1903 brands”.
Entry to the Escape Lounge costs from £29.99, with features including free wifi and a hot and cold buffet menu, while the premium 1903 Lounge costs from £35.99 and offers “bespoke daily food menus, premium complimentary drinks and plush seating”.
Commenting on the news Rupert Lawrie, commercial director, Bristol Airport, said:
“We are delighted to have partnered with CAVU for the opening of the two new Executive Lounges this summer in the Department Lounge.
“Both the Escape Lounge and 1903 Lounge will offer a fantastic experience for those going on holiday or away on a business trip. Both lounges will ensure that passengers will start their journey in style with high quality food and drink.
“The development to the Executive Lounges is part of a major strategy to enhance facilities for passengers using Bristol Airport. We are very confident that the investment and the evolution to the Executive Lounges will provide a greater customer experience as we improve and create new places to eat, drink and relax before you fly.”
Earlier this year Bristol airport began work on a project to upgrade its airside departure lounge, including the addition of a new Mexican restaurant and the relaunch of the airport’s bar.
