The Northern Lights Lounge at Aberdeen International Airport is set to open once again following an easing of Covid-related restrictions on travel in Scotland.
The lounge opened in 2017 as part of a terminal transformation project. The airport says measures have been put in place at the terminal to enable passengers to enjoy the lounge safely.
For example, tables and chairs have been positioned to enable safe physical distancing, hand-sanitizing stations are set up throughout and there is a one-way system for entering and exiting. Passengers will also be asked for their contact information when entering for tracing purposes.
Jemma Forrest, commercial manager at Aberdeen International Airport, said, “We are delighted that we are able to reopen the Northern Lights Lounge to passengers. The measures we have put in place will help keep them safe while being able to offer them more choice throughout our airport. Our staff and suppliers work extremely hard, and we love being able to showcase our amazing region and all it has to offer.”
Mark Beveridge, operations director at the airport, added, “Bringing back business remains a key priority and we are delighted to see our business partners reopening at our terminal. While it is critical that we re-emerge with strong connectivity, it is also key that the passengers using our airport have access to as many of the facilities as possible within the terminal – and feel safe to do so. The Northern Lights Lounge has been an extremely popular addition to our airport as part of the recent transformation of the terminal and I am delighted it will once again be back up and running for our passengers.”
