Club Aspire at Gatwick South wins Best New UK Airport Lounge

London Gatwick Club Aspire Airport Lounge operated through Swissport and Airport Dimension partnership takes home accolade at the 2019 Head for Points Awards.

 Airport Dimensions and Swissport announced that their joint venture airport lounge, Club Aspire at Gatwick South has been awarded the inaugural Best New UK Airport Lounge at the 2019 Head for Points Travel and Loyalty Awards. The lounge scooped up the top accolade following voting from 4,500 Head for Points readers in the UK.

The Club Aspire lounge opened on 28th September 2019 to provide business and leisure travellers with an exciting new space to escape the hustle and bustle of the terminal, enhancing their pre-flight experience.

The lounge has three main zones: a business area with workstations; a quiet lounge and rest area with an amazing view of the runway; and a dining area next to a servery and bar. Guests have access to a complementary seasonal self-serve buffet selection of hot and cold food, an extensive range of non-alcoholic and alcoholic drinks, newspapers and magazines, and unlimited WiFi to stay connected.

Errol McGlothan, Director at Airport Dimensions, co-operator of Club Aspire, said: “We are delighted that our latest Club Aspire lounge has been voted Best New UK Airport Lounge by Head for Points’ readers! These awards are highly sought-after and it’s great that travellers appreciate the effort we’ve put into creating a space where they can relax and kick off their trip in comfort.” 

Sharon Jevans, Aspire Lounges Director for Western Europe at Swissport said: “It is with great pride that we accept this award on behalf of Swissport and Swissport ALD.  The Gatwick South lounge is one of two new airport lounges in Aspire Lounges UK portfolio in 2019, with both already proving to be very popular amongst our guests.  2020 will see the Aspire brand develop further with at least 5 refurbishments of existing, guest favourite Aspire lounges and some exciting additions to the portfolio and offering.”

Shaun Weston, Vice President of Global Lounges at Swissport said: "We are delighted to have been presented with this award, which is even more important to us as it is voted for by our guests who have recognised our work in delivering this new lounge experience in the Gatwick South Terminal. We look forward to 2020, which will be a busy year in this key airport lounge, which we are sure will be much appreciated by its discerning audience."

The lounge is open to Priority Pass, LoungeKey, Lounge Pass, and retail customers. Prices start from £24.50 per adult. It is located airside, on the upper level and accessed through an exclusive entrance walkway between WHSmith and Sunglasses Boutique.

It complements the Club Aspire lounge in Gatwick North, which launched in 2018, and is the fourth in the UK, including the lounges in Heathrow Terminals 3 and 5.
