Gatwick Airport unveils new travel spa
Fri, 14 Jan, 2011
Gatwick Airport has announced the launch of a new travel spa, which will open in the North Terminal just in time for the start of the 2011 summer season.
After paying an entry fee of £20, passengers can treat themselves to a pre-flight pampering session at the facility, which provides a range of services including a mini-cinema and recreation area.
A wide variety of treatments are on offer for travellers, including hairdressing, massage, manicures and showers.
Chief commercial officer at Gatwick Airport Robin Longden expressed his hopes that the new facility will make passengers feel as if their holiday has started early.
"Our £1 billion investment programme is geared towards making the passenger experience more pleasant and enjoyable - providing better, speedier check-in products [and] shorter queues at security," he said.
This comes after statistics from Gatwick Airport revealed that passenger number had experienced a year-on-year decline of more than ten per cent in December.
