Designed for business travellers and mobile workers, it features a range of professional co-working spaces, private workstations called ThinkPods, mobile phone charging points, secure Wi-Fi and cloud-based printing and copying facilities.
The world’s third busiest hub, says feedback from retailers, airlines and external businesses points to particularly high demand for the meeting rooms, which are available in a range of sizes and bookable by the hour.
Stephen Wilkinson, Heathrow’s property director, explains: “We are delighted to announce that Regus Express at Terminal 5 is open, offering retailers, businesses and mobile workers a professional environment for working or meeting.”
There are two ways to access the Regus Express centre, via pay-as-you-go access priced at £8 per hour, or £40 per day, or through Regus Businessworld Gold membership at £35 per month.
Phil Kemp, global managing director of Regus Third Place adds the firm envisages it becoming a “popular touch-down point and meeting venue for a wide variety of users, not just airport passengers”.
