New VIP Lounge Opens at VC Bird International, AntiguaIt’s an airport experience unlike any other – no queues… no crowds… no hassles …

Spacious and elegantly appointed, the lounge at FBO 2000 is discreetly positioned away from the main terminal at Antigua and Barbuda’s VC Bird International Airport. Bypassing the usual airport routine, discerning travelers are heading straight to this airside facility to enjoy all the amenities of FBO 2000’s private departure lounge – complete with dedicated customs, immigration and passenger security screening halls.Whereas most VIP lounges are land-side or accessible only after passengers have checked in, cleared immigration and customs and passed through security, the lounge at FBO 2000 provides its guests all of the aforementioned without ever asking them to stand in a single line. Upon entrance at Gate 10 on the disused runway – an area otherwise reserved for charters, private jets and other FBOs – guests are escorted to the lounge via their own car or taxi. Greeted by hostesses with cool towels, cold drinks and a selection of gourmet finger foods, guests find themselves relaxing in true VIP comfort within moments of arriving at the airport as airline-trained agents complete their check-in and process immigration documents before transferring checked baggage to the airline.Offering both indoor and outdoor seating, the lounge further affords guests the option of spending their last moments on island soaking up the sun or enjoying a cool, evening breeze. Complimentary amenities include a selection of fine wines, high speed WI-FI, business center with fax and printing capabilities, shower facilities, 3 cable televisions, international reading materials and access to a quiet room and/or VVIP room. Cuban cigars, international fax and phone calls, and a selection of duty free items are available for purchase.

Currently available to British Airways passengers and private charter travelers only, access to the lounge may be reserved by calling 268 562 7056, 268 764 9690 or by emailing [email protected] Those traveling through Antigua to surrounding islands may also make use of the lounge during layovers. Reservations may also be made through your hotel or tour operator. For a list of our partner hotels and/or tour operators, please email [email protected] For more information, please visit us at
