The United Club in London Heathrow Terminal 2 has reopened; the first United Club to open outside the United States since the pandemic started.
United Club in London Heathrow Reopens
United Airlines has four airport lounges outside the United States, including in:
- Hong Kong (HKG)
- London Heathrow (LHR)
- Mexico City (MEX)
- Tokyo Narita (NRT)
All four lounges were closed in March 2020 and have not been open since. But this week, the United Club in London Heathrow has reopened.
The lounge is now open daily from 6:30am to 9:00pm. Located in The Queen’s Terminal (Terminal 2), a full spread of food is available and shower suites are also available. Social distancing precautions are encouraged inside the lounge, but the lounge looks much like before the pandemic.
A United spokesperson confirmed:
“We are so pleased to offer our premium customers access to our Heathrow lounge once again. I know just how much our customers appreciate this fantastic lounge. Our lounge experience provides comfort and relaxation, as well as excellent food and drink, shower facilities and workspace.”
This happens to be my favorite United Club in the system. With great staff and (at least before the pandemic) a great spread of food, I always looked forward to visiting this lounge and in some ways preferred it to the nearby Singapore Airlines SilverKris and Air Canada Maple Leaf lounges.
United becomes the last Star Alliance lounge to reopen at London Heathrow, with the Air Canada, Singapore, and Lufthansa lounges already reopened.
United Airlines has reopened is first overseas lounge, the United Club in London Heathrow. Just in time for omicron, hopefully the lounge still stay open and not close once again…
