Having airline elite status may not be what it once was, but for frequent guests of one terminal, there will soon be four incredible reasons to keep it. Behind the duty free shops, away from the luxury boutiques and all the food courts of the terminal, one corner of Heathrow Airport Terminal 3 will soon be home to more of the world’s best lounges than virtually any other airport on earth.
The Virgin Atlantic Clubhouse is a perennial favorite amongst travelers, offering waiter service, refined food and delicious cocktails – not to mention a jacuzzi, movie theatre, billiards table and hairdresser. Or of course, there’s another airline you may be familiar with, offering yet another world class facility: Emirates operates a flagship lounge location in Terminal 3 as well. Add in lounges accessible to all passengers – and despite considerable competiton from Hong Kong Airport, it’s fair to say – one terminal will have better airport lounges than any other on earth, and it’s Heathrow Terminal 3.
Will you be popping into one of these?
