easyJet will be offering access to its Gateway Lounge for all FLEXIfare customers, providing you are travelling from London Gatwick between 1st September and 30th November 2022.
The offer, which is being trialled from 1st September until 30 November, is also available to any FLEXIfare customers who have already booked to travel between these dates.
easyJet’s first airport lounge, which opened its doors last summer is operated in collaboration with No1 Lounges at the North Terminal at London Gatwick airport where easyJet is the largest airline.
It offers space, drinks and a buffet, along with complimentary Wi-Fi, convenient charging points and quiet spaces, and caters to families with a TV den and games room available
The Gateway Lounge located in the North Terminal is available every day from 6 am.
Ali Gayward, UK Country Manager for easyJet, commented:
“We are always looking for new ways to offer travellers more choice and great value, so we’re delighted to have launched this trial, offering FLEXIfare customers travelling from London Gatwick access to The Gateway Lounge between now and November, in addition to the great range of extras our customers enjoy when they book a FLEXIfare.
“The Gateway Lounge offer all the essentials to make work a breeze, or somewhere for the whole family to relax and unwind before jetting off. So, whatever the reason for travel, the lounge is the destination for customers wanting to get their trip off to a perfect start.”
If you don’t have FLEXIfare, you can still access the lounge
The Gateway lounge can also be booked in advance by all easyJet customers through easyJet’s exclusive partnership with Holidays Extras at https://parking.easyjet.com/easyjet-lounges.html?agent=BF121 or customers can simply book in on the day of travel. A range of one, two and three-hour packages are available with prices starting from just £18.99
Another step to a full-service airline?
It’s interesting to see how easyJet’s business model has shifted away from being a pure low-cost carrier, as it seeks to attract travellers – indeed offering a lounge on a full-fare ticket is pretty much a play that most full-service airlines might consider.
It’ll be interesting to see if the trial is extended and how the uptake for the lounge increases with this change.
