Aberdeen International Airport in Scotland is ready to open its new Northern Lights Executive Lounge later this week (July 1), marking the completion of the latest phase of its £20m (US$26m) redevelopment plan.
The airport launched the initial phase of its transformation project in May with the opening of the international arrivals baggage reclaim facility. The next stage will see the operation of the new domestic baggage reclaim by mid-July and the opening of an enlarged and improved security area and new retail offering by summer 2018.
The executive lounge has 50% more space than the previous facility, and boasts locally-inspired décor, panoramic views of the runway, and a locally-sourced menu crafted by renowned Kilted Chef, Craig Wilson, from Eat on the Green. Passengers using the lounge will also have their pick of Brewdog craft beers, Gordon Castle Gins and a feature whisky wall.
Carol Benzie, managing director at Aberdeen International Airport, said, “We are very excited to be working in partnership with Compass Group and many local suppliers to present our new Northern Lights Executive Lounge. The lounge has been designed with Aberdeenshire in mind and will offer passengers a much heightened quality of experience.”
The Northern Lights Executive Lounge is available to all passengers, regardless of their class of ticket or airline, for a walk-up service rate of £25 (US$32) per person with exclusive, introductory discount rates available in upBEAT magazine.
