Passengers travelling with airline carrier Germanwings, under its ‘Best’ business class option, will now have access to premium airport facilities at Birmingham Airport.

The recently opened lounge is owned and operated by No.1 Traveller, which specialises in airport lounges. Germanwings is the sixth airline to partner with No.1 Traveller within its first year of operation at Birmingham Airport.

“We are always keen to partner with airlines and support new routes so we’re thrilled to extend our agreement with Germanwings to Birmingham Airport,” said Howard Ebison, head of commercial at No.1 Traveller.

“No.1 Birmingham provides a range of premium services to cater to both business and leisure travelers and we hope that the partnership will enhance the preflight experience for germanwings ‘Best’ passengers,” Ebison added.

The lounge is open daily from 4:30am to 8:30pm, with seating areas across two levels. Guests at the lounge can choose from a selection of complimentary food and drink, a bar, bistro table service, free wi-fi access and a range of newspapers and magazines. Entry is £27.50 per adult at reception, for up to three hours access or £22.50 when booked in advance.

Germanwings will operate two daily flights from Birmingham to Hamburg and Berlin, six times a week. All Germanwings ‘Best’ passengers will be able to access the No.1 Birmingham lounge, which celebrated its first year of operation on October 31.

“We’re delighted to be working with No.1 Traveller to offer our ‘Best’ customers a premium preflight experience. Birmingham is a destination which fits perfectly with Germanwings' philosophy, because it is of interest to leisure and business travelers. The direct flights from Berlin and Hamburg open new opportunity for the traffic from Germany to Birmingham,” said Heinz-Joachim Schöttes, senior vice president, corporate communications at Germanwings.
