Swap the departure lounge for the beauty salon

Holiday Extras has introduced a new spa package at the North Terminal lounge, which includes a treatment in the lounge’s very own salon, as well as entry to the lounge and free use of all its facilities.

Customers can choose a fish pedicure to get their feet beach-ready, a shoulder and neck massage or a hand and arm massage.

Sean Hagger, head of commercial at HolidayExtras.com, said: “The idea of swapping hours hanging around in the terminal for a trip to the beauty salon will definitely appeal to the ladies - but if they’re nervous about flying, a massage is a great way for men to relax too.

“Many people find airport terminals quite stressful places, so we’re really pleased to be able to offer a package that makes customers’ time there extremely relaxing instead.”

Packages for three hours in the No 1 Lounge, with free use of all the facilities but with no spa treatment included.
