The Spitfire Lounge

Relax, indulge and unwind in our pre-flight airport lounge

What’s in our lounge

How about spending those three hours before your flight unwinding in our airport lounge, as opposed to waiting around in a busy airport terminal? Start your holiday with peace and quiet and indulge with our range of food and drinks. Our lounge offers:

  • Quiet space away from the main departure lounge to relax
  • Inclusive hot and cold food all-day
  • A selection of wines, beers and spirits*
  • Charging points for personal electronic devices
  • Enjoy free high-speed WiFi
  • Comfy upholstered seating
  • An upgraded experience to include a glass or bottle of Prosecco
  • Sample local spirits from many of our destinations for a small additional fee


Opening hours

Monday - Friday: 5am - 8:30pm
Saturday: 5am - 3pm
Sunday: 6am - 8:30pm
On Saturday 15th and Saturday 22nd of February, The Spitfire Lounge will be open until 8:30pm.

Why book the lounge?

The lounge offers great value for money. You'll get a whole host of otherwise costly things included. Like free snacks and drinks. If you think of the money you spend while you're in the airport on a meal with drinks and then a coffee to pass the time, you'll have spent more than the cost of entry into the lounge without even trying. Escape the hustle and bustle of the airport and put your feet up whilst catching the last of the country's news before you fly off. Or, browse the web, watch some TV and well, just relax.

Did you know kid's under 5 go free, and children aged 6 to 11 get access to the lounge for only £12. What's more we have a range of colouring materials to keep youngster's entertained.
