Regus Express workspace opens at London Gatwick Airport
South Terminal work hub intends to support mobile workers with access to business facilities and meeting rooms
Global workspace provider Regus has today opened its latest Regus Express site at London Gatwick Airport South Terminal, giving mobile workers access to a drop-in co-working lounge and meeting rooms.
Situated landside so it can be used by local businesses “looking for cost effective workspace” as well as business travellers passing through the airport, the launch of the remote working hub follows Gatwick’s claim that one in five of its passengers now travel on business.
The workspace comprises of an open plan co-working area with free Wi-Fi and refreshments, alongside 10 meeting rooms available to hire by the hour, and a library. Users will also have access to additional facilities such as showers and breakfast (pictured above).
A two hour stay at the site, along with shower and breakfast facilities, is priced at £25. Access to the business lounge on as a pay-as-you-go basis is priced at £8 an hour or £40 for the day.
The launch comes eight months after the deal between Gatwick and Regus was initially announced and forms part of Regus’ Third Place concept – creating office facilities at places where mobile workers pass through in daily life.
Regus Third Place global managing director, Phil Kemp, said of the launch: “As a company, we are committed to meeting the needs of the modern worker by extending our network at leading transport and retail locations across the globe.
“The opening of Regus Express at Gatwick Airport is the latest development in this strategy to help business people work more productively on the move.”
Action point: Search shared workspaces and assess if it could be worth co-working with other start-ups (external site, opens in new tab)
Guy Stephenson, London Gatwick chief commercial officer, added:
“The opening […] will only add to what Gatwick has to offer the ever growing proportion of business travellers using the airport, enabling them to keep working on the go, rest and freshen up before continuing their journeys.”
