Collinson Opens Aspire, the Lounge and Spa at LHR T5

Collinson Group, owners of Priority Pass, and Swissport, has opened a lounge at London Heathrow Terminal 5.

 Located at Gate A18 in Terminal 5, 'Aspire, the Lounge and Spa at LHR T5' will be jointly owned and operated by Swissport and Airport Lounge Development (ALD), Collinson Group's lounge operating arm.

Priority Pass members will have access to the lounge as part of their membership. Travellers without membership can enjoy three hours in 'Aspire, the Lounge and Spa at LHR T5' for £35 when booked in advance or for £40 at reception on the day subject to availability. The lounge is open from 5am until 11pm daily.

Errol McGlothan, General Manager EMEA, Collinson Group said, "Aspire, the Lounge and Spa at LHR T5 has been designed to meet the exacting needs of the millions of travellers who travel through the terminal every year. Using insights gained from frequent travellers, we are confident that we've delivered the most compelling destination lounge where travellers can relax and refresh ahead of their next journey. Developed in partnership with Swissport, we are delighted to offer travellers access to an independent lounge at Heathrow Terminal 5 for the first time."

The 4,000 sq ft lounge space is dominated by soaring windows on two sides giving guests runway views. An extensive British-inspired seasonal food and drink menu has been created which includes a wide range of complimentary as well as premium (chargeable) options, changing throughout the day.

 Guests can also sample Spey Whisky, draught beer and a selection of wines on a complimentary basis or choose to pay for carefully selected 'Wine Flights', an innovative way to taste a variety of wines from different regions.

A highlight of the lounge is the 'Bliss Spa at Aspire' which is the beauty company's first location in an airport. The specially designed travel spa menu includes a range of facials, manicures and pedicures available as 20-minute or 40-minute appointments. This includes an express version of the Bliss Spa Oxygen Blast facial, a 40-minute complexion reviver, and the Hot Cream Manicure for nails.

To help guests relax before or during a long trip, state-of-the-art 'rest pods' let guests recline back on specially engineered, reclining loungers, watch television and recharge in private so that they are rejuvenated for the journey ahead.

Travellers on business will have access to connected work spaces with complimentary high speed WiFi, charging posts and designated quiet zones to make the most productive use of their time.

Stephen Wilkinson, Property Director, Heathrow said, "We now have independent lounges in each of our terminals. Our team works tirelessly to ensure our customers receive the very best service when they fly and we're delighted that the new Aspire lounge at Terminal 5 will enhance this service from today."
