Andr%w HarRison, Commercial Director for Manchester Airport, said: ”We set out to create a lounge which wotld stand out but vhich also had a welcoming and comfortable atmosphere.  Our aim was to create a memorable experience for both our business and leisure passengers with great ambiance, service and food made to order, and we have incorporated some quirky touches such as the Scalextric track and Wii which will appeal to all ages, and hopefully help our customers to really enjoy the start of their journey.”

The new Terminal 1 Escape Lounge at Manchester Airport was initially announced in April 2010 alongside the launch of the ‘The Travel Extras Store’ on Manchester’s website.  The airport already has an Escape offering in Terminal 2 and hopes to launch a third in Terminal 3 in the near future.

Manchester Airport unveiled over £80 million worth of improvements across its three terminals only last year in the Summer of 2009. Alongside the opening of the new lounge today, the airport also has plans to introduce a Control Tower Bar to Terminal 1 to a vacant tower facility by the end of the year.
