Workspace provider Regus has opened its first Workpods based in London Gatwick Airport, situated airside in the South Terminal.
The Workpod is a private workspace offering travelers a quiet place to check emails and make some last minute calls before catching their flight. For a fee of £10 (US$16) for half an hour, customers have access to a desktop PC, an office desk, cell phone chargers, business class wi-fi and a telephone to make calls within the UK. Passengers can book the Workpod on the spot using their credit card, or online on the Regus Third Place website in advance of their travel.
Phil Kemp, global managing director of Regus Third Place, said, “Workpods offer business travelers everything they need when working on the move – a quiet space to check emails, make that last call or concentrate on urgent work before they fly. We know that more and more people need to work on the move, and this is another way of helping our customers maximize their productivity.”
Guy Stephenson, chief commercial officer at London Gatwick, said, “Business travel continues to grow at Gatwick, with one in five passengers
now traveling on business to a range of destinations, from European business centers to emerging international markets. The Regus Workpods will be another key addition to the modern new facilities we offer business passengers every step of the way from the office to the plane.”
