Glasgow Airport’s exclusive £1.6m Lomond Lounge this month welcomed its first passengers.

The plush facility lounge, which created 25 new jobs, is based airside in the departures area and will operate between 5am and 9pm.

This is the fourth lounge facility to be based at Glasgow – the most of any Scottish airport – as the number of people looking to enjoy access to exclusive lounge facilities continues to rise. Emirates and British Airways both have their own separate facilities at Glasgow while the airport has operated its own hugely-successful UpperDeck lounge for a number of years.

Glasgow Airport Managing Director Mark Johnston said: “My team has worked incredibly hard to deliver this project and we are all immensely proud of the Lomond Lounge.  I’ve got to say that although the initial design concept images looked impressive, they don’t do it justice when you see the completed lounge.

“Given its prime location in the airport’s departures area, the lounge offers fantastic views of both the airfield and the stunning backdrop of the Campsie Fells, while raising the benchmark by providing a premium level of service and comfort. It’s a beautiful space and I’m sure our customers are going to be very impressed with everything this luxurious new facility will offer.”

The look and feel of the 4,500-square foot lounge has been inspired by the neighbouring Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park and features a mix of table service for a la carte dining and more relaxed seating areas were passengers can unwind in comfort and enjoy a snack or drink before their flight.

The natural colours and contemporary styling have also been balanced with a strong appreciation of Glasgow Airport’s original Basil Spence-designed architecture, with the lounge proudly housing his renowned barrel-vaulted ceilings.

With a capacity of just 100 covers allowing for greater privacy, the Lomond Lounge offers a wide selection of a la carte breakfast, lunch and dining options featuring Scottish produce freshly prepared by local chefs.

Lounge customers can choose from a range of freshly-prepared dishes from the breakfast and lunch/dinner menus, whether it’s eggs Benedict or an American pancake stack ahead of the morning business commute, the Lomond beef or vegan burgers for lunch or even a stone-baked pizza with Ayrshire ham or fish with triple-cooked chips with minted mushy peas for an evening meal before heading off on holiday.

Diners can also take in the wonderful views of the Lomond Lounge while enjoying a pre-flight afternoon tea replete with a serving tower topped with delicious finger sandwiches, freshly-baked scones with clotted cream, cakes and pastries.

Further dining options include hot and cold self-service buffet options such as a St James’ smoked salmon platter or Navratan korma with baked paneer from the bistro area.

A range of craft and premium bottled and draft beers, soft drinks, top-quality spirits, specialist cocktails and award-winning wines including prosecco and champagne are available from the staffed bar area.

The lounge includes a business suite area and features charging outlets, high-speed WiFi, flight information displays and complimentary national newspapers and glossy magazines.  

Lomond Lounge entry will cost £40 and can be booked in advance by visiting this page, or payment can be on the day subject to availability at that time.
