Airport Dimensions has teamed up with Gameway to open a premium video gaming lounge space in Charlotte Douglas International Airport in the US.
The airport marks the fourth location in the rapidly growing Gameway network and the first in a new collaboration with Airport Dimensions. The lounge provides passengers with a premium entertainment experience while they are waiting for their flight and is equipped with individual gaming stations fitted out with: PlayStation or Xbox game consoles and top of the line Razer gaming PCs; high-end Razer gaming accessories; comfortable lounge chairs and Razer gaming chairs. Snacks and drinks are also available to purchase. Guests can play pre-downloaded games including some of today’s most popular titles such as Fortnite, FIFA, NBA2K, Madden, Call of Duty, Minecraft and Rocket League.
“Video gaming is now one of the fastest growing markets in entertainment, particularly with the rapidly growing traveller demographics of Millennials and Gen Z,” said Chris Gwilliam. Vice President Global Business Development at Airport Dimensions. “Gameway provides the best solution to engage this important traveller segment in the airport environment, making this partnership a perfect fit,” he added.
Passengers travelling through the airport can purchase access at the lounge based on the time they have available before their flight or acquire monthly passes if they are frequent flyers or regularly pass transit through the airport. Members of Priority Pass are also entitled to a complimentary hour of access plus a drink and snack.
According to Emma Walbridge, CEO at Gameway, the gaming lounge will offer passengers the opportunity to have fun while travelling for both business and leisure. “We firmly believe that the airport experience should be valued as an integral part of the travel journey, and simply put, our mission is to make airports entertaining. It made perfect sense for Gameway to partner in the development of this location with Airport Dimensions, as they are the global leaders in delivering experiences for air travellers. We know this is only the first in many more joint projects to innovate the airport experience and make time spent in airports both relaxing and fun! We also appreciate the spirit of partnership shown by both Paradies Lagardere and the CLT Airport team, as its clear that all parties involved in this project truly prioritise the traveller experience.”
