London Stansted Airport is one of the large airports around London that operates flights to various destinations. The current terminal was opened in 1991 and is home to 20 airlines including Ryanair – a budget airline. It is the UK’s 4th largest airport and is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. In 2013 London Stansted was acquired by Manchester Airports Group which also operations East Midlands Airport.
As a frequent traveller from London Stansted Airport, I can attest to how delightful it was to experience Escape Lounge. From £25 per person, you can book an entry to the Escape Lounge to rest and enjoy various foods. The lounge is open to everyone regardless of your airline or ticket class for the aforementioned price. Passengers from DragonPass, Diners Club, Holiday Extras, Lounge Pass, Lounge Club, Lounge Key are welcome too.
London Stansted Airport – Escape Lounge: Review
Over the last 6 years, London Stansted Airport has been my airport of choice for all my mini getaways to Europe. I didn’t know all this time was, there was an Escape Lounge where you can relax before your flight. You can imagine my delight when an opportunity arose to collaborate with London Stansted Airport. I was super excited because this was my first time in an Escape Lounge in the UK other than the lounges at Heathrow.
Disclosure: I was a guest of London Stansted Escape Lounge, all opinions shared are my own and correct at the time of this post.
The Escape Lounge is located near departure gates between Pret-A-Manger and Coast to Coast. To reach the lounge, there are stairs and a lift is available for those who might need it. One thing to note is that flight times and other notices are not shown or announced in the lounge.
When I arrived at the reception desk, I was informed of what’s available in terms of foods and drinks. It was quite in the morning which was perfect, various people were either eating or working. The Lounge is quite a large hall, whilst there are no lounge type chairs, all are very comfortable.
