A new British Airways lounge has opened as part of a recently completed extension at Aberdeen airport.

Using a new design concept, it becomes the second in a new series of lounges following an opening at Rome’s Fiumicino Airport.

BA has created zones throughout the 380sq metre lounge in Aberdeen to suit the needs of all passengers, including seating overlooking the runway and a granite-topped bar.

The airline’s head of product, Sarah Klatt-Walsh, said: “We are committed to investing in our lounges as part of our £4.5 billion investment programme and are delighted to be opening the next one in the series in Aberdeen.

“Our new design concept has been created to make better use of the space in our lounges, while still making it feel contemporary and luxurious.

“We have focused on technology, offering complimentary wi-fi and ensuring there is plenty of access to USB and power points, enabling customers to work, surf online and charge personal devices.

“We have already had really positive feedback from customers who have experienced our new lounge in Rome, and we think those travelling through Aberdeen will love the new look and feel.”

BA’s New York JFK Terminal 7 will be the next lounge to open under the new design concept, with improvements being made to check-in.

The airline also plans further investment at Geneva, San Francisco, Johannesburg, Chicago and its lounges at Heathrow.
