Stressed Out? Head To Gatwick To Unwind

Posted January 20, 2011 by BookingBuddy


Gatwick-north It’s no surprise that many of us find travelling a highly stressful experience. All those security checks and scans, never-ending queues and other passengers – it’s enough to make you give up and just stay home instead! However, at least one airport is trying to improve the experience for their passengers.

 

The airport will be opening a 10000 square feet lounge at its North Terminal this summer, just in time for the holiday crowds. The lounge will include a spa, a mini-cinema, games areas and even a business centre. Passengers will have to pay a £20 entry fee to make use of the lounge. They will also have access to complimentary goodies suck as snacks, magazines and WIFI. Those will like to arrive at their destination looking their best will probably want to go for a manicure or even a haircut.

 

‘At Gatwick, we want our passengers to feel as if their holiday starts right here at the airport,’ said Robin Longden, the airport’s chief commercial officer. Sounds good to me! I may even forgo my overseas holiday and just spend a couple of days at Gatwick this summer.

How can an airport have set flight schedules and not properly staff passport control? Gatwick is a poorly managed mess.
