Plaza Premium, the world’s largest independent airport lounge operator, opened its newest location at London Heathrow Terminal 5 in November 2017. The new club joins an impressive lineage of lounges spanning all terminals, offering access to all passengers, regardless of airline or class or service, for a fee.
With seating for 156 guests, the Plaza Premium Lounge at Terminal 5 is much more intimate than British Airways’ sprawling lounges, yet features a similar array of amenities.
In a departure from Plaza Premium’s typical window-less locations and dark signature decor, the Terminal 5 lounge boasts floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the runway, white marble and tile, and high-end finishes.
The designers have placed an emphasis on privacy, with high-backed cube chairs, booths in the dining area, and Plaza Premium’s signature honeycomb seating offering business travelers well-appointed semi-private space with a seat, table, power outlet, and individual lamp.
The complimentary buffet features a selection of snacks and hot entrees. A full bar is also available with an assortment of complimentary and paid drinks.
Other amenities include complimentary Wi-Fi, shower suites, and a selection of newspapers and magazines.
