Qantas will throw open the doors to its new Domestic Business Lounge and Premium Lounge Entry next week as part of the airline’s multi-million dollar upgrade at Brisbane Airport.
The Domestic Business Lounge is 30 per cent bigger than the previous facility, with seating for more than 350 people. Designed by Woods Bagot, the space features local materials and a colour palette said to be inspired by Moreton Bay at twilight.
The lounge will feature a full bar serving premium Australian wines, Rockpool Mixologist-designed cocktails and craft beer, and a wine bar open from midday. There will be all-day barista Vittoria coffee and a “hydration station” – Quench – serving non-alcoholic beverages. A generous fresh hot and cold buffet, as well as a communal coffee bar, will also feature.
The lounge also features a work zone with wireless printing, power and data outlets throughout, Wi-Fi, TVs with Foxtel, shower suites with ASPAR by Aurora skincare products and an AccorHotels service experience.
Premium Lounge Entry will offer top tier Frequent Flyers an exclusive check-in area, bag drop, security screening and escalator with direct access to the new Lounge Precinct.
Qantas Head of Domestic Lounges Helen Gray said the national carrier’s investment would raise the bar for premium domestic travel from Queensland’s capital.
“This investment is all about offering our customers a premium experience from the moment they arrive at the airport,” she said.
“Premium Lounge entry is a first for Qantas and will streamline the departure process, so our top tier Frequent Flyers can move through the terminal quickly and maximise their time in the lounge.
“Qantas lounges are often named among the world’s best. We’re really proud of the new lounges we’ve recently opened in Singapore, Hong Kong, Los Angeles and Perth – and we’re excited to bring this successful formula to our customers in Brisbane.”
