Regus Express opens at Gatwick Airport

London Gatwick has opened its first dedicated business lounge with global workplace provider Regus offering on-the-go business travellers a drop-in facility that is ideally located by South Terminal Arrivals.

The new Regus Express facilities offer convenient access for those needing a quiet place to work, hold a meeting or even freshen up with a shower prior to departing or on landing at Gatwick. The business lounge comprises of an open plan area for co-working, with free Wi-Fi and refreshments, as well as meeting rooms available by the hour.

The location is the first Regus Express to combine arrivals facilities such as showers and breakfast with the more traditional meeting room and business lounge offering.

With Gatwick serving 129 destinations by rail and over 200 destinations across 90 countries by air, one in five passengers are now travelling for business. The airport also serves 45 of the top 50 EU business routes, making it the perfect place for a central meeting location.

Phil Kemp, Global Managing Director of Regus Third Place, said:

“As a company, we are committed to meeting the needs of the modern worker by extending our network at leading transport and retail locations across the globe. The opening of Regus Express at Gatwick Airport is the latest development in this strategy to help businesspeople work more productively on the move.

“Gatwick, with its magnitude of connections to business destinations around Europe and its ability to connect arriving passengers to London within 30 minutes, provided us with the perfect opportunity to offer Regus Express to its 38 million passengers.”

Guy Stephenson, Chief Commercial Officer at London Gatwick, said:

“Today one in five passengers travelling through Gatwick is flying for business thanks to the vast range of destinations we serve, quick rail times into central London and efficient airport experience. The opening of this high quality Regus Express facility will only add to what Gatwick has to offer the ever growing proportion of business travellers using the airport, enabling them to keep working on the go, rest and freshen up before continuing their journeys.”

The opening of Regus Express at Gatwick Airport is the latest milestone in the roll-out of Regus’ Third Place concept - professional workspaces and office facilities at places where business people and mobile workers pass through in daily life. It follows the launch of Regus Express locations at various locations across Europe including motorway service stations, shopping centres and retail parks.
