Manchester Airport lounges reopen with catering upgrade

Manchester Airport’s four Escape Lounges have reopened following a brand refresh. The spaces now offer all-inclusive food and drink provided by Manchester Airport Group’s (MAG) own staff.

The lounges have new color schemes, menu designs and locally-inspired artwork. The new food and beverage options are fully inclusive, with items that used to be paid upgrade options –including hot breakfasts, premium beers and spirits, and hot meat and vegetarian main dishes – now available for the single-entry price.

This includes Veuve Valmante sparkling wine and Manchester Pale Ale, supported by a local partnership with independent Manchester brewery JW Lees.

The lounges also feature new ‘Instagram walls’, where passengers will be in with a chance of seeing their own Instagram photos displayed for a limited period of time. Guests simply have to tag the lounge @escapelounges or use the hashtag #escapelounge. Prices start from £25 per person.

Beth Brewster, executive vice president, lounges, MAG, said, “Since opening our first Escape Lounge in 2000, their popularity has risen with our passengers. We have taken this opportunity to give our Manchester lounges a revamp that should make them an even more enjoyable space for passengers to use before they jet away.”
