Airport operator Manchester Airports Group (MAG) has opened its new-look Escape Lounge in Terminal 2 (T2) at Manchester Airport in northwest England.

MAG spent approximately £1.9m (US$2.5m) on renovating the common-use lounge, which has increased capacity by a third with room for up to 212 passengers. A new kitchen and bar have also been added to the main lounge, which has been created by knocking two lounges into one.

Kevin Smith, head of retail, MAG, said, “We’re delighted with how well the refurbishment has gone. Now even more passengers can start their holidays in style by taking advantage of our fantastic facilities.”

Originally launched in Manchester Airport’s T2 in 2006, MAG has successfully grown its Escape Lounge brand, adding a second in Terminal 1 in 2010 and in Terminal 3 in 2013, as well as launching at East Midlands and London Stansted airports in 2014.

MAG has also taken the Escape Lounge concept across the Atlantic to the USA. The operator recently opened its first lounge at Minneapolis-St Paul International Airport in Minnesota, with further openings planned for Oakland International Airport in California and Bradley International Airport in Connecticut.
