Pre-flight pampering: Airport Parking and Hotels (APH) compares beauty treatments and wellness offerings at UK airports

According to the Global Business Travel Association (GBTA) Foundation*, over one-third of business travellers (37%) have combined their work travel with an extended leisure break, resulting in what is now known as a ‘bleisure’ trip.

For travellers looking for a spot of pampering prior to a bleisure trip or for those simply pushed for time amidst a jam-packed schedule, Airport Parking and Hotels (APH) has put together a guide comparing the wellness and beauty treatments available at 22 airports around the UK.
