Bristol Airport to launch two new executive lounges in summer 2023

Working in partnership, Bristol Airport and CAVU are excited to announce the opening of two new airport lounges this summer. Operated by CAVU, Escape Lounge and 1903 Lounge will offer all passengers the opportunity to start their journey in the best way possible.


Both Escape Lounge and 1903 Lounge have a reputation for delivering a premium pre-flight experience, offering travellers a special way to ignite that holiday feeling. Offering friendly service, a wide selection of complimentary food & drink and dedicated space & services, the lounges create a world away from the hustle and bustle of the terminal, allowing guests to relax and unwind before their flight.


Nolan Hough President of CAVU in EMEA, said:

“We are thrilled to bring these premium lounge experiences to Bristol Airport.”

“From a curated menu to excellent customer service, this lounge will help travellers unwind and recharge as they await their flight.”


Located on the mezzanine floor of the departure terminal, 1903 Lounge is available to pre-book for entry from May 1st 2023** and Escape Lounge can be pre-booked for entry from June 1st 2023. The launch of both lounges will be followed by a period of refurbishment in the winter of 2023/24 to bring both lounges in line with the Escape and 1903 brands. Guests can expect the warmest of welcomes alongside the following:


Zones inspired by passengers’ needs

Inspired by the local architecture and design, both Lounges will showcase distinctive features of the city in spaces that are designed with passengers’ needs in mind. From quiet zones to relax, areas to entertain the family or flexible spaces for larger groups, spaces have been thoughtfully created to offer relaxing and enjoyable experiences for all.


All-inclusive amenities and services

Passengers can expect an unrivalled pre-flight experience. A seasonally inspired regional menu of complimentary hot and cold food is freshly prepared in-lounge by our very own chefs while our carefully curated drinks menu includes revered national brands as well as local favourites. Additionally, passengers can take advantage of high-speed Wi-Fi, mobile charging stations & power sockets and digital access to newspapers & magazines through PressReader.


Elevated customer service

A passenger-centric ethos lies at the heart of the Escape Lounge and 1903 Lounge offering.


Rupert Lawrie, Commercial Director, Bristol Airport said:

“We are delighted to have partnered with CAVU for the opening of the two new Executive Lounges this summer in the Department Lounge. Both the Escape Lounge and 1903 Lounge will offer a fantastic experience for those going on holiday or away on a business trip. Both lounges will ensure that passengers will start their journey in style with high quality food and drink.”

“The development to the Executive Lounges is part of a major strategy to enhance facilities for passengers using Bristol Airport. We are very confident that the investment and the evolution to the Executive Lounges will provide a greater customer experience as we improve and create new places to eat, drink and relax before you fly.”
