Bristol Airport to elevate pre-flight experience with the launch of two new lounges

Working in partnership, Bristol Airport and CAVU are excited to announce the opening of two new airport lounges this summer. Operated by CAVU, Escape Lounge and 1903 Lounge will offer all passengers the opportunity to start their journey in the best way possible.

Offering friendly service, a wide selection of complimentary food and drink and dedicated space and services, the lounges create a world away from the hustle and bustle of the terminal, allowing guests to relax and unwind before their flight.

Guests can expect quiet zones to relax, areas to entertain the family and flexible spaces for larger groups, as well as a seasonally-inspired regional menu of complimentary hot and cold food. Additionally, passengers can take advantage of high-speed Wi-Fi, mobile charging stations & power sockets and digital access to newspapers and magazines through PressReader.

Rupert Lawrie, Commercial Director, Bristol Airport said: “Both the Escape Lounge and 1903 Lounge will offer a fantastic experience for those going on holiday or away on a business trip. Both lounges will ensure that passengers will start their journey in style with high quality food and drink.

“The development to the Executive Lounges is part of a major strategy to enhance facilities for passengers using Bristol Airport. We are very confident that the investment and the evolution to the Executive Lounges will provide a greater customer experience as we improve and create new places to eat, drink and relax before they fly.”

Located on the mezzanine floor of the departure terminal, 1903 Lounge is available to pre-book for entry from May 1 and Escape Lounge can be pre-booked for entry from June 1. The launch of both lounges will be followed by a period of refurbishment in the winter of 2023/24 to bring both lounges in line with the Escape and 1903 brands.
