Passengers embarking on the gruelling 24-hour flight from Australia to London can now rest and refresh when they arrive, as Plaza Premium announces the opening of their new arrivals lounge at London Heathrow.
This marks the first independent arrivals lounge in Heathrow's Terminal 2. Open to all passengers regardless of cabin class or airline, this pay-per-visit experience is designed to add convenience, comfort and value to airport passengers. This is especially true for corporate travellers coming from Australia as it provides the opportunity to refresh with a shower before heading out for a day of business in the city.
