British Airways’ new lounge for premium passengers and top-tier oneworld members opened at Heathrow’s Terminal 3 on May 11.
The 300-seat Galleries Club Lounge is for eligible customers travelling to Barcelona, Madrid, Lisbon, Helsinki, Vienna and Malaga.
A second dedicated 250-seat lounge for customers travelling in First class will open later in the year, at the same time that long-haul flights to Sydney, Bangkok and Singapore transfer from Terminal 4.
Silla Maizey, British Airways’ Customer Director, said: “The new and amazingly spacious lounge offers the same fabulous luxury and comfort as the lounge complex in Terminal 5.  It will bring the glamour back to Terminal 3.”
The lounge features unique Swarovski chandeliers over the Silver Bar in the Galleries Club, and furnishings by Osborne & Little.  Work and entertainment zones are also available with free wi-fi.  There is also a dedicated room for younger passengers with interactive furnishings, a magnetic wall and toys.
An Elemis travel spa, offering a range of beauty therapies and treatments, will open in the new lounge complex later in the year.
