Virgin Atlantic to Open New Lounge at Newark Airport

Virgin Atlantic Airways has announced details of its latest investment in the New York metropolitan area: a brand-new Clubhouse at Newark Liberty Airport. On the heels of the March 2012 opening of their JFK Clubhouse, the latest Clubhouse will open this October.

The new Clubhouse will be located after the security checks in Terminal B and will be close to the gates (giving passengers plenty of time to relax before boarding). Created by the same team as the JFK Clubhouse, including New York-based architectural practice Slade Architecture, the Newark space is designed to evoke lower Manhattan – think Soho boutiques, TriBeCa lofts and Meatpacking District chic. Upper Class passengers can enjoy personalized food service featuring locally-sourced produce.

Virgin Atlantic offers two daily flights from Newark to London Heathrow, as well as three daily flights from JFK to London Heathrow, with a fourth daily service beginning in October 2012.
