Ensuring our passengers have the best experience at LJLA is at the heart of everything we do. 

What else do I need to know?

With this in mind, refurbishment work recently took place in the Aspire Premium Lounge to create a more comfortable, modern and exciting space for passengers to eat and drink, or simply relax before their flight. Following the refurbishment, the lounge benefits from a whole new layout, maximising the existing space and allowing more seating, meaning more of our passengers are now able to enjoy the lounge’s facilities.
