Luxuriate pre-flight with Lounge Pass and prep for flights with PressReader


Rest assured

There’s nothing better than enjoying the anticipation of an exciting escape in comfort, surrounded by delicious food, free Wi-Fi and perhaps a spa treatment or two. Now everyone can enjoy that experience thanks to British Airways and Lounge Pass, which have teamed up to offer airport travellers access to more than 600 non-British Airways lounges in 350 airports worldwide. The ultimate airport lounge experience can be enjoyed from just £13.50 per person. Pre-booking is advisable and available up to 15 months in advance. Executive Club members can earn 5 Avios per £1/€1/$1 when booking on the British Airways Lounge Pass website.

KidZania returns

KidZania London, an immersive 'city' run by children, opens its doors again on 1 October and features a refreshed British Airways Aviation Academy. Children from four to 14 can try their hand at piloting a plane, presenting the news or even becoming a vet at this career-minded, educational attraction. To celebrate the reopening, parents have the opportunity to win a free family ticket, while key workers can enjoy free entry on the opening weekend. Executive Club Members can also save 15 per cent on the standard ticket price. Visit The Club magazine for more information.
