Lounge access for Norwegian passengers from Oakland

Low-cost airline Norwegian will give Premium passengers travelling to Gatwick from Oakland International Airport free access to the airport’s brand new lounge from this month.

Passengers flying in Norwegian’s Premium cabin on its award-winning low-cost flights from the Bay Area will benefit from complimentary access to the new Escape Lounge operated by Manchester Airports Group USA.

Access to the Escape Lounge will complement the existing free access to No1 Lounges at Gatwick for all Norwegian Premium passengers.

The new Escape Lounge at OAK will be the first to open on the West Coast and will offer Norwegian’s Premium passengers a relaxing atmosphere with stylish and contemporary furnishings, an extensive complimentary locally inspired menu, unlimited free alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages and free high-speed Wi-Fi in addition to a selection of newspapers and magazines.

Norwegian’s economy passengers and customers of other airlines will also be able to purchase access to the Escape Lounge.


Norwegian’s Premium cabin is in a class of its own, offering passengers an enhanced service and extra comfort at greater value when flying transatlantic.

Thomas Ramdahl, chief commercial officer at Norwegian said: “We’re upgrading our Premium passengers’ journey with complimentary access to the newest airport lounge in the Bay Area.

“Norwegian is defining premium low-cost travel with an enhanced experience without the price tag.

“Our customers expect high quality, choice and affordable fares which is why Premium passengers can enjoy the fantastic brand new facilities of the Escape Lounge at Oakland in addition to select lounges in other parts of the world.”
