No1 Lounges is planning to add 16 lounges at UK airports over the next three years.
The group already has eight lounges in Birmingham, Edinburgh, Gatwick and Heathrow airports – it plans to double this to 16 by the end of 2018, and add another eight lounges by the end of 2020.
The airport lounge operator has not said where the new lounges will be located, although it added they will be in “airports where No1 already has a presence and some entirely new locations”.
The group operates three different types of lounges - My Lounge, No1 Lounges and Clubrooms - with entry starting from £18. No1 Lounges had a turnover of £23 million last year.
No1 Lounges recently launched its newest Clubrooms brand at Gatwick’s North and South Terminals (pictured above). The high-end concept offers white-linen a la carte dining, champagne and cocktails, with entry costing £40 per person.
Phil Cameron, founder and CEO of No1 Lounges, said: “Premium travel is changing rapidly – it is no longer just about turning left when you board the plane.
“Passengers are increasingly looking for affordable luxuries and more personalised experiences, especially as many airlines are streamlining their offerings in order to compete.
“We believe it is about giving consumers greater choices and a stylish send-off – all without breaking the bank.”
