There is going to be a brand new Priority Pass Lounge in Heathrow Terminal 5.
Heathrow Airport Ltd issued a tender for an operator to manage a new departure lounge in Terminal 5 which was won by Plaza premium. The tender includes the option of including a spa but is unlikely to have much of a view as the BA lounges take up much of the viewing galleries in Terminal 5.
This is excellent news for anyone without premium British Airway status. You can simply buy a Priority Pass or take out an American Express Platinum charge card (which comes with two Priority Pass cards).
This lounge will officially open 4th August 2015. More information on the Aspire Airport Lounge Heathrow Terminal 5 here and I have written an udated review of the Aspire Priority Pass lounge in Terminal 5 that will soon include pictures.
