By TTM on 03 June 2009 in News
bmi has created a new series of partnerships for the opening of the lounge that showcase Mark Hix's new line of salad dressings and ice creams on bmi’s midhaul Business Class menus and in bmi Number One Heathrow. The Hix branded ice-cream will be stocked in a freezer where bmi customers can help themselves to his generous pots of either ‘Credit Crunch’ (caramel and honeycomb chocolate), Rhubarb Crumble or Blueberry and Dorset Honey flavours.
bmi Number One Heathrow is open to bmi Business Class, Diamond Club (Gold and Silver) and Star Alliance Gold customers travelling to bmi international destinations.
Located above Gate 5 in Terminal 1 it does not feature a reception desk – instead customers are welcomed inside by members of the Lounge Team.
The Study offers a work oriented environment with desk seating as well as a boardroom-style table and free Wi-Fi is available.
The Café is centred around a custom-made black Aga where steaming hot soup is available all day as well as a range of food around the clock.
From 1 July bmi will be launching their new dining-on-the-ground service for their evening flights where customers can choose an evening meal.
The styling and design throughout the lounge also emphasises Britain’s best, both traditional and contemporary.
Chairs are by Tom Dixon – an innovative UK designer, while there are original works of art by an award-winning graduate of the Royal Academy of Art, Phil Shaw. Materials and colours are rich and sensual – reinforcing the indulgent, yet welcoming atmosphere.
The new international lounge is the latest in a series of innovations from bmi. The airline recently launched its new Chauffeur Drive and Premium Check-in area at London Heathrow’s Terminal 1 to provide a fast and hassle free check-in service for Business Class and Premium Economy customers as well as bmi Diamond Club Gold and Silver card holders.
