Collinson Group, owners of Priority Pass, today announced the opening of Club Aspire, an exciting new lounge at London Heathrow Terminal 3. Club Aspire will be jointly owned and operated by Airport Lounge Development (ALD), a subsidiary of Collinson Group, and Swissport. Located near Gate 9, Club Aspire is designed to meet the needs of discerning travelers who desire a quiet place to relax and refresh in one of the world’s most popular airports.

Club Aspire will be available to Priority Pass™ Members as part of their membership. Travelers without membership can pre-book and enjoy three hours for an introductory price of £24.99 through Swissport’s lounge booking website www.executivelounges.com and also at www.loungepass.com. Walk-in access is also available for an introductory price of £29.99 (subject to availability).

To celebrate its opening, travelers can enjoy complimentary Prosecco as an introductory offer until 31 January 2017. The brand-new lounge accommodates more than 120 passengers and incorporates the very best of contemporary design. The lounge offers a range of dedicated zones that will ensure travelers can work, rest or pamper themselves before their journey – including luxury treatments from Bliss® Spa.

Club Aspire’s best-of-British food menu will include complimentary, freshly-prepared breakfast rolls, a salad bar, deli counter, and children’s options. A premium menu with full meals will also be available for a small charge. Drink options will include complimentary premium brand alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks, along with speciality teas and coffees.

Errol McGlothan, Director, ALD said: “We’re excited by the opportunity to offer our Club Aspire product to Terminal 3 travelers just one year after being overwhelmed by the response of customers to our product at Heathrow Terminal 5. Club Aspire is designed around the needs of the business traveler and offers choice to independent travelers looking to make the perfect start to their journey.”

Shaun Weston, Travel Services Director, Swissport commented: “Swissport’s lounge offerings have grown steadily in popularity with the Aspire brand since it launched in 2012, and now covers many global destinations. The opening of Club Aspire gives us a presence in one of the world’s most popular airport terminals and is another step forward for Swissport. We’re pleased to have been able to combine our operational expertise with that of ALD’s to create another world class lounge facility.”

Stephen Wilkinson, Property Director, Heathrow said: “Following the success of ‘Aspire, the Lounge and Spa at LHR T5’, we are delighted to be bringing the same experience to Terminal 3 with Club Aspire. We are always looking for new ways for our customers to receive the very best experience when they fly and we hope they enjoy the newest independent lounge we have to offer.”

Key features include:

  • Quiet Zone

Club Aspire is the second lounge to be launched in a joint venture partnership between Airport Lounge Development (ALD), a subsidiary of Collinson Group and Swissport, two of the most experienced global companies operating airport lounges today. Club Aspire builds on the success of ‘Aspire, the Lounge and Spa at LHR T5’, opened by the joint venture partnership at Heathrow Terminal 5 in 2015, and which is already being expanded in response to the exceptional customer demand for access with seats for an additional 50 guests soon to be available. Club Aspire adds to ALD’s portfolio of 12 airport lounges operating in the US under ‘The Club’ brand as well as Swissport’s 14 lounges across the world operating under the ‘Aspire’ brand.
