Lounge Review: Escape Lounge Manchester Airport (MAN) Terminal 3

Right next to the British Airways Terraces Lounge in Terminal 3 is the Escape Lounge. This lounge is used by Skyteam airlines, and it’s also accessible via Priority Pass, which is how I entered.

I really enjoyed this lounge, especially since it was accessible via Priority Pass. It felt super modern, there was lots of seating and natural light, and it was generally a pleasant place to spend some time. The lounge does not have showers, though, which is likely less of an issue for most passengers at MAN.

The lounge has quite a bit of seating. There’s a main room, but also more seating near the circular window that’s also part of the British Airways lounge next door. The lounge also has large windows with views out onto the apron.

The lounge has both a buffet and made-to-order food, although you have to pay for the latter. They start serving lunch at 11am, and they had a number of options like sausage rolls, pasties, other carry meaty things, a couple of salads, a meat plate, a cheese plate, soup, and fruit. I ate a plum that was pretty ripe and sweet!

I’m always appreciative of lounges that try to serve more real food, and this lounge definitely hits the mark. There’s also a full bar, although it’s not self service. Overall, this is a very good Priority Pass lounge and a pleasant place to spend some time before your flight.
