Terminal 2 has recently undergone a massive transformation – the new terminal has fantastic dining options – our recommendation would be San Carlo if you love Italian food, or Amber Alehouse should you prefer something more traditional.
We generally recommend Escape Lounge to leisure travellers or those with children, and The Aspire lounge for business travellers. They are both great lounges with only subtle differences.
