No. 1 Traveller adds 'Driveway to Runway' services at MAN

28 May 2013 by GrahamSmith

No. 1 Traveller has introduced a new "Driveway to Runway" range of services for passengers at Manchester Airport.

The lounge provider's added benefits allow travellers flying from the airport to book products including chauffeur-driven airport transfers, airport parking, a VIP departure service and access to any of MAN's three Escape lounges, including fast track access.

All of these services can be booked separately or combined to create a bespoke package.

The airport's Escape lounges offer complimentary food and drinks as well as free wifi access. Entry is £21 for adults and £13.50 for children.

All departing passengers who book Escape lounge entry via will receive complimentary fast track through security.

Howard Ebison, head of commercial at No. 1 Traveller, said: "Expanding our Driveway to Runway product range at Manchester Airport with an offering that spans chauffeur-drive, parking, a VIP ‘meet and greet’ departure service and smart airport lounges is a great development for us.

"We already have lounges at Heathrow, Gatwick, Stansted and Birmingham and identified a demand to service travellers flying through the UK’s third busiest airport."

No. 1 Traveller has also launched a mobile website which allows passengers to book lounge access on their phones, with as little as one hour's notice.

The new site allows passengers, regardless of their airline or class of travel, to guarantee a place in the lounge, even on their way to the airport.

Last month, the company added fast-track security access as a new benefit for its guests purchasing lounge entry at Gatwick and Birmingham airports (see online news, April 2013).
