A part of the airport's £12m terminal redevelopment programme, the 'Escape Lounge' is said to offer an improved area for passengers to relax in before departure.

"Our passengers are now starting to reap the rewards of the terminal redevelopment."

The lounge will provide passengers with a selection of complimentary food and drink, free Wi-Fi access and a range of newspapers and magazines.

East Midlands Airport managing director Andy Cliffe said: "The Escape Lounge will be a great improvement on our previous executive lounge.

"Our passengers are now starting to reap the rewards of the terminal redevelopment and are enjoying a simpler and more efficient journey through security and on to departure.

"The bulk of the redevelopment work is nearing completion and we are looking forward to opening the final stages over the upcoming months."

In addition to the lounge, the airport has also opened the new security queuing area, which represents the completion of the purpose-built security hall and two new catering outlets.
