Regus opens first 'workpods' at Gatwick

18 Dec 2014 by GrahamSmith

Regus has launched its first "workpods" in London Gatwick's South Terminal.

The two workpods are located airside and offer business travellers a private workspace with wifi, a desk and seat, plug sockets and mobile device chargers, a computer screen and a telephone to make calls within the UK.

Each facility costs £10 plus VAT (£12) per half hour.

Travellers can use their credit card to book the workpod on the spot, providing it is not in use, or they can book online in advance.

Phil Kemp, Global Managing Director of Regus Third Place, said: "Workpods offer business travellers everything they need when working on the move — a quiet space to check emails, make that last call or concentrate on urgent work before they fly.

"We know that more and more people need to work on the move, and this is another way of helping our customers maximise their productivity."

Further workpods are planned for Gatwick's North Terminal in early 2015.

Guy Stephenson, Gatwick's CCO, said: "Business travel continues to grow at Gatwick, with one in five passengers now travelling on business to a range of destinations, from European business centres to emerging international markets.

"The Regus workpods will be another key addition to the modern new facilities we offer business passengers every step of the way from the office to the plane."

In October, Regus opened a landside meetings and arrivals facility in the airport's South Terminal (see news, October 21).
