A new Plaza Premium Lounge has opened for travellers in London Heathrow Terminal 5 this week. It is the first lounge in the terminal for Plaza Premium Group offering spectacular views across the runway. This now means that Plaza Premium Lounges can be found in all Heathrow terminals – with lounges already operational in Terminals 2, 3 and 4.
The lounge is reasonably priced, starting at £40 for two hours’ lounge access including a fully tended bar serving alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, fresh seasonal hot and cold food from the buffet and high-speed Wi-Fi. There are also shower facilities, plenty of comfortable seats, work stations and charging outlets, plus quality international newspapers and magazines.
At 465sq metres, it’s spacious, but not the largest of lounges, but its certainly geared at pay-for only guests, as the British Airways terminal will offer complimentary lounge access to premium-level frequent fliers and business & first class guests.
The lounge is located in a quiet corner of Terminal 5, close to departure gate A7. It is open daily from 0500 to 2200 and travellers can book in advance or walk in on the day.
While this may now complete the brand’s expansion across all terminals, its not the end of their plans for Heathrow. An 83-bedroom ‘Aerotel’ transit hotel is due to open landside in Terminal 3 in January 2018.
One thought on “Plaza Premium Opens New Lounge In Heathrow Terminal 5”
This lounge, together with the other one that opened on the other corner of T5A (by gate 18) is a rip-off. £40 is not a reasonable price for what is, essentially, a broom cupboard measuring, if you’re lucky, 20 meters in length and 5 in depth. It’s yet another attempt by Heathrow Airport Limited to squeeze a dime out of passengers, and it comes to the expense of the children’s play area, now confined to a dimly-lit, windowless cavern by gate A3. Shameful, really.
