Regus Express is set to open at Terminal 5 this summer and the opening is in response to a growing demand for ‘third place’ work locations where business travellers can check their emails, hold conference calls, meetings and print documents.
When opened, it will offer a quiet, professional business lounge with a co-working space, private workstations, to be known as ‘ThinkPods’ and secure WiFi, as well as meeting rooms available by the hour.
Stephen Wilkinson, Heathrow’s property director says: “We are delighted to welcome Regus Express to Heathrow.
“More business passengers pass through Heathrow than any other airport in the world, making the opening of this centre at Terminal 5 an innovative solution for our customers.”
Heathrow has also announced 5.4 million passengers passed through in January, up 3.8% on 2013, with seats per aircraft increasing 1.4%.
BRIC passengers were up 5%, China up 26% and Brazil up 6.8% and the largest rise was travellers from Mexico, up 26.8% on the previous year.
CEO Colin Matthews, says: "January's traffic figures reflect a strong start to the year and the increasing demand for long-haul routes to emerging market destinations such as Chengdu and Mexico City, that only a hub airport can support."
In 2013, Heathrow welcomed 72.3 million passengers.
