Manchester Airport lounges have a refresh

Manchester Airport’s four Escape Lounges have re-opened following a brand refresh and will from now on offer completely all-inclusive food and drink provided by MAG’s own staff.

The lounges have had a refresh, with new colour schemes, menu designs and locally-inspired artwork.

The new food and beverage options, which will now be handled for the first time by in house MAG staff at every lounge, are fully ‘all inclusive’. Items that used to be paid upgrade options, including hot breakfasts, premium beers and spirits, and hot meat and vegetarian main dishes, are now available for the single-entry price. This includes Veuve Valmante sparkling wine and Manchester Pale Ale, supported by a local partnership with independent Manchester brewery JW Lees.

Whatever time of the day guests visit the lounges, they will find the buffet packed with a range of delicious dishes – all freshly prepared daily on site. Passengers can enjoy a selection of breakfast favourites including pastries, cereals, fresh fruit and hot items. Those joining for brunch or lunch can discover a range of hot buffet options such as pastries, spiced chicken and curries, as well as favourites such as mac n cheese, cottage pie and the soup of the day - served alongside cold buffet salads. For those with a sweet tooth, a choice of cakes and biscuits are available.

The lounges also feature new “Instagram walls” where passengers will be in with a chance of seeing their own Instagram photos displayed for a limited period of time. Guests simple have to tag the lounge - @escapelounges or use the hashtag - #escapelounge

Beth Brewster, Executive Vice President, Lounges at MAG said: “Since opening our first Escape Lounge in 2000 their popularity has risen with our passengers. We have taken this opportunity to give our Manchester lounges a revamp that should make them an even more enjoyable space for passengers to use before they jet away.”
