A NEW lounge has opened at Gatwick airport and access is free – but it's not open to everybody.
The exclusive 'Roam Freely' lounge offers complimentary drinks and snacks alongside comfortable seating so travellers can relax before boarding the plane.
For those travelling for business, there are also plenty of work spaces, as well as multiple charging points to ensure that you can charge all your devices ahead of your flight.
People fortunate enough to gain access can make use of a Disney+ room, with films available to stream in case of any delays.
Additionally, the lounge has a beach-themed photo space so guests can snap and share holiday photos before they leave the UK.
In order to be allowed in, passengers must be either O2 or Virgin Media customers and must book ahead.

Priority members from both networks will simply need to pick their slot through the Priority app and they will be able to dodge the crowds while they wait to fly.
Customers can take an adult and up to six children under 16 into the lounge with them as guests as well, meaning travel companions can stick together.
The lounge is situated at Gatwick’s North Terminal and has been launched by O2, who are the only network not to bring back EU roaming fees.
For those not travelling from Gatwick the network is also offering free lounge access for Priority members and up to three travel companions at airports globally with SmartDelay, if their flight is delayed by 60 minutes or more.
