New business lounge opens at London Southend Airport

A new business lounge for passengers flying in and out of London Southend Airport by private jet is now operational. The Arrivals Hall in the old London Southend Airport terminal building has undergone a £500,000 (US$785,000) transformation to create the facility.

The new Executive Handling area includes a meeting room (complete with full video conferencing technology), a pilot’s rest zone and facilities for drivers who are waiting for passengers. There is a large lounge with plenty of space for passengers to relax and an experienced hosting team who can provide a wide range of refreshments. The whole area is equipped with security screening equipment, and also offers discreet, direct access to the exclusive business jet parking area.

The completion of the lounge comes shortly after Southend Airport announced an exclusive new partnership with Landmark Aviation to handle business jets during summer 2012. Landmark Aviation is one of the world’s largest fixed based operators of business jets.

London Southend Airport managing director Alastair Welch said, “London Southend is going to be introduced to a wide range of new customers in 2012 as they travel to London for the Olympics, and we want to demonstrate to them the great service and big benefits we can offer them over other London airports – both this summer, and beyond. This new business lounge is part of our commitment to providing our passengers with the best possible facilities and excellent customer service.”
