Delta premium passengers get access to No. 1 Traveller Lounge at Gatwick

The No. 1 Traveller Lounge at Gatwick Airport in London recently announced a partnership with Delta Air Lines, the first major carrier to team up with the premium facility, reports Air and Business Travel News.

Under the terms of the agreement, Delta's business class passengers and elite members of the airline's frequent flier program will receive access to the lounge at no charge. Currently, Delta offers flights between Gatwick and its hub in Atlanta, making it one of only two U.S. carriers that operate service to the secondary London airport.

"We are delighted to be working with Delta Air Lines as the first airline partner of the recently launched No. 1 Gatwick lounge," said Paul Lawes, the head of finance and commercial services at No. 1 Traveller. "Our aim is to provide a sophisticated setting in which travellers are able to relax and unwind before departure."

The new Gatwick facility, which opened for business last week, offers a wide range of premium services for business class passengers. Those who take advantage of the lounge can enjoy a complimentary bistro-style menu, a full bar, a mini movie theater, family rooms, games rooms and free wireless internet access throughout the area.

In addition to these general amenities, the lounge also features rooms tailored to more specific needs. In the travel spa, guests can take a shower or enjoy salon services, including manicures, pedicures, massages, facials, hairdressing and even a special foot bath where small fish help rejuvenate dead skin.

Corporate travelers can make use of a special business center, where they can work using computer stations, printers, fax machines, private meeting rooms and self-service refreshments. The lounge also offers a range of financial services. Visitors are able to have foreign currency delivered to the facility, while they can also book travel insurance and make use of a personal shopping service through World Duty Free.

"We're delighted to be opening a new, world-class lounge at Gatwick, which will change the pre-flight offer for over seven million passengers," said Phil Cameron, the founder and chief executive officer of No. 1 Traveller, when the new facility first opened last week. "We're bringing passengers more choice than ever before, so that spending time at the airport can become another memorable part of their journey."
