Swissport and Airport Lounge Development (ALD), a subsidiary of the Collinson Group, have joined forces to open the first independent lounge in Terminal 5 (T5) at London Heathrow Airport.

Aspire, the Lounge and Spa at LHR T5 will open to customers this summer and will be available to every passenger traveling through T5, regardless of their class of travel. The lounge will be located at Gate 18 and has been developed in response to passengers’ demands for an area to rest and relax whilst waiting for connecting flights.

Errol McGlothan, general manager – EMEA at Collinson Group, said, “We are delighted to have the opportunity to open an independent lounge at T5, one of the most important terminals in the world. Insight from Heathrow indicates that travelers are very keen for us to offer them this exciting new facility and meet their desire for somewhere to rest and recharge.”

Shaun Weston, travel services director, Swissport, said, “Since launching in 2012, the Aspire lounges have grown in popularity and now cover many global destinations. The opening of Aspire, the Lounge and Spa at LHR T5 offers real value to travelers and we are excited to partner with Collinson Group to deliver this premium service.”
