Delta Air Lines just announced that they have opened a new Arrivals Lounge at London Heathrow for arriving BusinessElite passengers and SkyMiles Diamond and Platinum Medallion members arriving from the United States. The Arrivals Lounge will be open daily from 6:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m for these arriving passengers.

The Arrivals Lounge is located in the arrivals hall in Terminal 3 and will provide Delta high value customers access to eleven private showers which will have amenities by New York’s Malin+Goetz (the same brand that does their amenities in their amenity kit) as well as offering an on-site butler who will be able to press your clothes while you shower and will offer shoe shine services.

The lounge is open from 6am-2pm daily.

When it comes to food and beverages, the lounge will offer Starbucks Coffee, lighter fare such as fresh fruit, pastries, yogurt and cereals and prepared to order a la carte items. There will be complimentary Wi-Fi throughout plus a business center.

When it comes to flights departing London Heathrow, flights to Atlanta, Boston, Los Angeles, New York, and Seattle leave from Terminal 3, and flights to Minneapolis/St. Paul and Detroit depart from Terminal 4.

Departing BusinessElite customers also have private car access to the Virgin Atlantic Upper Class Wing at Terminal 3, which enables them to go from car to Clubhouse in less than 10 minutes. This is a pre-booked service, which allows these passengers to use private security lines as well.

A few weeks ago, Delta announced that they would launch London to Philadelphia service beginning in April, 2015, in addition to their recent new non-stop flights to Seattle and Los Angeles.

What are your thoughts on Delta’s new arrival lounge in London? Do you think they will open more arrival lounges in other cities?
