Heathrow is one of the busiest airports anywhere in the world, and welcomes something to the tune of 75 million passengers per year. Of course, many of these are leisure travellers, looking to take in London’s plethora of world famous tourist attractions or visit the rest of the UK. But as one of the world’s major financial centres, London welcomes a huge number of business travellers every day, and Heathrow Airport understands how important it is for people to be able to work in comfort when they’re on the move. Consequently, there are a great deal of facilities and services available for business travellers.
This starts with making your journey as stress-free as possible. The Heathrow App makes your way to and from, and your time at, the airport much easier with flight updates and tracking services, travel notifications and prompts, and a connections planner to help you map out your onward journey. Regular business travellers can also see their Heathrow Rewards balance, redeem their points and access exclusive offers. The airport’s convenient parking facilities are also great for business travellers, with business, valet and pod parking all designed with professional travellers in mind. You won’t have far to travel to your hotel, Park Grand London Heathrow, where a range of great deals are available for business travellers. It’s one of the most luxurious hotels in Hounslow East, which is easily accessible to central London via the London Underground.
Most of all, though, business travellers will love Heathrow’s range of airport lounges, designed to provide a comfortable, quiet environment whether you want to sit back and relax or get work done. Terminals 2 & 4 are home to the sleek Plaza Premium Lounges, courtesy of superstar Hong Kong designer Kinney Chan. They include private relaxation rooms perfect for getting some work done, luxurious shower rooms, and a wellness spa with an exclusive menu of treatments to help you gear up for a long flight. To refuel, there’s a tapas bar and, for when you’ve finished work, you can celebrate with a wide choice of champagnes at the Champagne Bar. In Terminal 3’s Servisair Executive Lounge, you’ll find complimentary drinks, snacks, and tea & coffee waiting for you upon your arrival at the airport, as well as internet access, computer points, phone and fax to help you be as productive as possible. There’s a quiet environment with comfortable chairs, and TV and a selection of newspapers and magazines for when you want to relax. If you have a long connection and want to get a bit of shuteye in between flights, the No.1 Traveller Bedrooms in Terminal 3 are perfect, with airside twin and single ensuite rooms available for minimum stays of three hours. In the accompanying No.1 Traveller Lounge you’ll find complimentary food & drink, a fully tended bar, free Wi-Fi plus newspapers and magazines, and even a games room and cinema. Best of all, though, is the Aspire Lounge and Spa, a contemporary British-designed lounge with a Quiet Zone, featuring rest pods where you can watch TV and recharge in privacy, and a work area, with complimentary Wi-Fi and charging posts. The Lounge features soaring windows with dramatic views on both sides, and is the perfect place for discerning business travellers to get work done.
