Aspire Lounge – first and only independent lounge in London Heathrows Terminal 5


There is something new, new in London Heathrow’s Terminal 5, the home of British Airways. BA operated most of her flight out of Terminal 5 (and three) and is nearly the only airline operates in Terminal 5. Keep this facts in your mind and you will understand why there is no other than British Airways Lounges in Terminal 5.

Asprire Lounge LHR - 1If you are flying British Airways and do not sitting in the Premium Cabins or being a Oneworld Frequent Flyer (Saphire or Emerald), you can’t use any lounges in T5. There is no chance to pay for an entry to a BA lounge.

British Airways has three huge lounges (in T5A), one Terraces Lounge on each side of the terminal (open for Oneworld Saphire, another First Class Lounge (open for Fist Pax or one world Emerald) and the –> Concorde Room (open only for FirstClass passenger or Concord Cardholders).

But now, the waiting time is over and the first independent lounge open in T5A. –> Link
