Air New Zealand to open expansive new Brisbane International Lounge
The new 771 square metre lounge caters for nearly 200 customers with 70 percent more seating than the previous lounge and offers a number of unique spaces which allow customers to tailor their lounge experience.
The Air New Zealand Brisbane International Lounge is in a prime position wrapping around the corner of the airport terminal, and features lofty ceilings, large windows and expansive views back to Brisbane city and into the lower terminal. Spaces in the new lounge include a café area with self-service food buffet and beverage station, a children's play area and family space, quiet nooks, business table and bathroom facilities.
Air New Zealand General Manager Customer Experience Carrie Hurihanganui says the opening of the Brisbane lounge is part of the airline's commitment to continually improving the customer experience every step of their journey.
"We're proud to offer our customers a seamless transition to the new lounge and we're certain they will enjoy everything about the space.
"From the tailored seating zones, relaxing colour palette and dedicated children's play spaces, to the enhanced food and beverage offering, the lounge provides a comfortable haven whether customers are travelling for work or leisure."
Designed by award winning US-based firm, Gensler, the new Brisbane Lounge is part of a four year $100 million programme to develop the airline’s lounge network and follows the completion of the Sydney International, Auckland International, Auckland Regional and Invercargill lounges.
The new Air New Zealand Brisbane International Lounge is located on the upper level of the airport next to gate 81 and near the escalators and food court and will be open to eligible lounge customers from 16 March.
