‘The Gateway by easyJet & No1 Lounges’ provides customers with an ideal space to work or relax ahead of their trip.

The Gateway will offer passengers comfortable spaces space to eat, drink, work and play before their flight. The Gateway will offer customers a choice of complementary hot and cold menus with a selection of enticing dishes, freshly prepared and served to their tables, alongside a range of self-serve side dishes and hot and cold drinks. Destination-inspired signature dishes, which change every quarter, will be offered for those wishing to get that authentic taste of Europe before they jet-off, as well as the lounge’s own signature cocktail list.

An ideal space for work, relaxation or entertainment,  The Gateway provides free Wifi and areas to work with convenient charging points; a choice of dining and lounge soft-seating for relaxing with refreshments,  as well as areas that families can enjoy exploring including the TV den and games room.

The launch comes as the airline reports that business travel is returning to easyJet with corporates attracted by its value, network and approach to sustainability.

Rachael Smith, Commercial Proposition & Innovation Director for easyJet, said:

“We are delighted to be launching our very first airport lounge in partnership with No1 Lounges to serve passengers at London Gatwick, where we’re proud to be the largest airline.

“We’re always looking for opportunities to offer travellers more choice and great value, so we’re proud that The Gateway will be able to offer something for everyone whether it’s all the essentials for a workspace, somewhere comfortable to relax before jetting off or to entertain the family.

“The launch is timely as we are seeing the recovery begin in the UK, not only for leisure travel where winter sun destinations are proving popular once again, but for business travellers too, who are returning in their biggest numbers since before the pandemic.

“Whatever the reason for travel, we are confident that the lounge will provide the perfect destination for customers wanting to get their trip off to a perfect start.”

 

easyJet is Gatwick’s largest airline, and largest base, home to 71 easyJet aircraft serving over 120 routes across Europe, North Africa and the Middle East.

Shaun Weston, Managing Director of No1 Lounges, said:

“We are excited to launch this new lounge concept at Gatwick Airport in partnership with easyJet. The Gateway is the destination at Gatwick North Terminal to enjoy a laid back, relaxed pre-flight experience. This new lounge concept will be the first opportunity for us to develop a new market segment in partnership with easyJet. We are anticipating that this lounge will be extremely popular during the travel renaissance as we recover from challenging times. We can’t wait to introduce and welcome a new audience to the world of airport lounging.”

 

All passengers travelling through London Gatwick Airport North Terminal can book to use the lounge regardless of airline or travel ticket class. They can also arrive without a booking and present their easyJet boarding pass on entry to the lounge.

Jonathan Pollard, Chief Commercial Officer, Gatwick Airport, said:

“We are delighted to welcome easyJet’s and No1 Lounges, The Gateway, to our North Terminal. As Gatwick’s biggest airline, it’s fantastic that easyJet has a dedicated space for all passengers to relax before their flight, whether travelling for business, leisure or with their family.”

 

easyJet flew around 19m passengers to and from the airport in 2019 on 121 routes across Europe, North Africa and the Middle East.
