A new passenger lounge has opened at Edinburgh airport.

The 142-seat Aspire Lounge has been created by global aviation services firm Swissport.

The facility with runway views, separate booths for business and family travellers and private washroom facilities, is the first in the world to feature a new Aspire look and feel.

Open to all travellers irrespective of airline or travel class booked, it offers unlimited free wi-fi, seating with tableside charging facilities, a bar and food cooked fresh on site.

The new lounge will be open to passengers using ExecutiveLounges.com and membership schemes such as DragonPass and Priority Pass.

It is the second Aspire Lounge at the Scottish airport, with the original opening in 2014 and set for refurbishment from February.

The company operates 30 airport lounges in Europe, North America and Africa, including 15 in the UK. 

Edinburgh airport chief executive Gordon Dewar said: “We’re delighted that we’re the first airport to be home to Aspire’s new look lounge as they begin to roll it out across the world.

“It looks excellent and has already received great feedback from passengers who have had time to enjoy the new surroundings and relax ahead of their flights.”

Swissport lounges director Sharon Jevans said: “We’re excited to unveil our new Aspire Lounge at Edinburgh airport – the first to showcase our brand-new design for our lounges worldwide.

“This fabulous space is a natural choice for guests to enjoy before their flight.”
