Glasgow Airport just unveiled a new £1.6 million luxury lounge on Monday. The Lomond Lounge offers a chance for guests to enjoy the work of famous architect Sir Basil Spence, complete with 'barrel vault' ceilings and massive windows that let in plenty of natural light.
The theme of the lounge is to bring the outside into the lounge, and it sports a full oak bar offering specialized whiskey and gins, as well as plenty of beers on tap and craft beers in bottles. There is a full a la carte menu, along with several options at the buffet. Since the lounge is in Scotland, there is also an afternoon tea menu for guests to enjoy.
The fancy lounge is located in the departures area and is open between 5am and 9pm every day of the week. The new lounge is the fourth at the growing airport. With four lounges, the Glasgow Airport has more lounges than any other airport in Scotland. Currently, Emirates and British Airways have lounges at Glasgow. The airport also has its own UpperDeck Lounge.
The lounge is nestled in a prime location, and it offers amazing views of the airfields with a backdrop of Campsie Fells, a range of gently rolling hills.
The price to enter the lounge is a very affordable £40, and the 4,500-square-foot lounge is open to everyone. Those traveling on business will appreciate the business suite area, which offers charging outlets, high speed wireless Internet and screens displaying the latest flight information.
If you want to get into the lounge, you can book online in advance by going to its website. Or depending on availability, you can show up in person and pay to enter.
