Birmingham Airport announces launch of business lounge Regus Express

Birmingham Airport has announced the launch of Regus Express, the new drop-in workplace for mobile and flexible workers, situated near the check-in and arrivals area.

Designed by global workspace provider Regus, Regus Express features a professional business lounge and a suite of meeting rooms offering an all-set workspace from £8.00.

The lounge serves business travellers as a professional retreat offering a quiet place to work, and rooms to provide a convenient location to hold meetings. The lounge includes workstations (ThinkPods), comfortable seating with laptop stands, secure wifi, printers and scanners, as well as complimentary refreshments and administrative support. Regus Express customers also have access to dedicated parking spaces at the airport.

Richard Gill, Birmingham Airport’s Head of Commercial, added: ‘The arrival of this new state-of-the-art business lounge, delivered by Regus, is great news for the millions of business passengers who pass through the terminal each year.

‘Now passengers flying to and from Birmingham can continue their working day without disruption, with the added advantage of discounted on-site parking for users of the facility. We’re confident the Regus Express lounge will prove to be extremely popular within the region’s business community and demonstrates our commitment to providing passengers with the facilities they need.’

Phil Kemp, Global Head of Third Place at Regus, commented: ‘Most workforces are far more agile and mobile than they were a few years back, but there is a growing need for professional work and meeting space on the go. Regus Express offers business people a productive alternative to working in noisy public areas. We also expect the location to become a popular venue for local and national businesses to hold meetings with contacts who are flying in or out of the airport.

‘We are committed to extending our network of Express locations across the UK’s airports, providing business travellers with a modern way of working effectively on the move.’
