Manston Airport Lounge Fit-Out

We were delighted to be asked to fit-out a new business lounge at Manston Airport.

Charles Buchanan, CEO of Manston Airport was quoted in Kent Online as saying “The new lounge is part of our ongoing efforts to upgrade facilities at the airport and support passengers using the new KLM route to Schiphol and onward to the airline’s 190 worldwide destinations. We believe it will be another compelling reason why business passengers will choose to fly from Manston via the twice daily service to Schiphol, rather than fight their way around the M25 and M11 to other airports”.

After having discussions with the management team we set about creating an area which would be up and ready to coincide with the KLM Royal Dutch Airlines first flight to Schiphol on 2nd April.

Manston is undergoing major changes and the new business lounge fits in perfectly with the overall look they wanted to achieve.

We started by dismantling an existing room to give more space and a clear working area, we then built the new lounge using a solid partitioning with glazed aspects together with glazed sliding doors a quirky touch was the manifestation on the glass whilst it is all done in barcode it actually says “Manston”.

The lounge area has dedicated workstations for those wishing to work whilst they wait it also have Wi-Fi access and printers together with a refreshment area. Complimentary refreshments, including teas, coffees and a light breakfast will be on offer for passengers flying over to Amsterdam early in the mornings. There will also be the facilities to charge mobile phone in case passengers’ batteries are running low. A TV is also installed for those wishing to just relax before their flight.

We finished off by supplying and installing furniture which was carried out by Harts of Maidstone whom we work with on our projects.

Charles Buchanan further commented on our development “As Manston Airport develops we are keen to work with Kent based companies who understand our needs and share our passion for quality and service. In JBH we have found such a company. They understood what we were trying to achieve and delivered to a very tight timescale. The lounge they have conceived and created complements the rest of the growing airport”.
