Thousands of Lancashire holidaymakers can look forward to starting their holidays in style after Manchester Airport unveiled a new look, expanded Escape Lounge in Terminal Two.

The airport has spent £1.9m on the lounge which has increased in capacity by a third with room for up to 212 passengers.

The new-look Escape Lounge will provide passengers with an area away from the hustle and bustle of the airport terminal before they fly.

A new kitchen and bar have also been added to the main lounge, which has been created by knocking two lounges into one.

Kevin Smith, Head of Retail, said: “We’re delighted with how well the refurbishment has gone. Now even more passengers can start their holidays in style by taking advantage of our fantastic facilities.”

Originally launched in Manchester Airport’s Terminal 2 in 2006, MAG has successfully grown its Escape Lounge brand – adding a second in Terminal 1 in 2010 and in Terminal 3 in 2013, as well as launching at East Midlands Airport and London Stansted in 2014.

MAG has also taken the Escape Lounge concept across the Atlantic to the USA, with three set to open this year.
