London Gatwick opens first dedicated business lounge

London Gatwick has opened its first dedicated business lounge with global workplace provider Regus offering on-the-go business travellers a drop-in facility in South Terminal Arrivals.

The Regus Express facilities offer convenient access for those needing a quiet place to work, hold a meeting or freshen up with a shower prior to departing or on landing.

The business lounge comprises of an open plan area for co-working, with free Wi-Fi and refreshments, as well as meeting rooms available by the hour, and it is first to combine arrivals facilities such as showers and breakfast with the more traditional meeting room and business lounge offering.

Guy Stephenson, chief commercial officer at Gatwick, says: “Today one in five passengers travelling through Gatwick is flying for business thanks to the vast range of destinations we serve, quick rail times into central London and efficient airport experience.

“The opening of this high quality Regus Express facility will only add to what Gatwick has to offer the ever growing proportion of business travellers using the airport, enabling them to keep working on the go, rest and freshen up before continuing their journeys.”

Gatwick’s traffic now consists of one in five passengers travelling for business, and it says it serves 45 of the top 50 EU business routes.

Phil Kemp, global managing director of Regus Third Place, explains: “Gatwick, with its magnitude of connections to business destinations around Europe and its ability to connect arriving passengers to London within 30 minutes, provided us with the perfect opportunity to offer Regus Express to its 38 million passengers.”
