Arrivals lounges

A running shower.

Get ready for the day ahead with a quick stopover in one of our Arrivals lounges. Freshen up with a shower or help yourself to a snack or refreshments before continuing with your day.

Our Arrivals lounge in Heathrow Terminal 5 offers this service especially for you, as does our partner American Airlines, in their lounge in Heathrow Terminal 3*.

These lounges are exclusive to you if you have travelled in First or Club World, or are a Gold Executive Club Member, arriving on selected British Airways longhaul flights*. Capacity restrictions apply so we are sorry we cannot allow you to bring guests into these lounges.

* The American Airlines arrivals lounge at London Heathrow Terminal 3 is available to all eligible American Airlines customers and eligible British Airways customers on flight numbers BA206, BA208 and BA218. All other lounge eligible British Airways arrivals at Terminal 3 are invited to use the British Airways Arrivals lounge in Terminal 5.
