British Airway’s First and Club South lounges at Heathrow’s Terminal 5 are undergoing a £1m refresh.

The lounges are benefitting from brand new contemporary and stylish furniture throughout, plush new carpets, re-sanded, waxed and polished extensive oak wooded floors, and more power outlets to charge phones, laptops and tablet computers.

The investment is designed to increase customer satisfaction.

Troy Warfield, Director of Customer Experience, said: “Our First customers and Gold Executive Club members are used to the very best service and surroundings, both in the air and on the ground.

“The refurbishment of our lounges at Terminal 5 will ensure they can continue to enjoy fine cuisine, outstanding wines and champagnes and relax in comfort before flying in style to destinations around the world.”

Over 220 new pieces of furniture, ranging from stylish high-backed chairs, occasional tables, dining furniture and relaxing sofas have replaced the previous furniture.

Additional power outlets have been discreetly fitted to provide even more places for customers to re-charge and power up their personal electronic devices.
