Double the seating for new Dunedin lounge
The Dunedin regional lounge is situated on the upper floor of the airport terminal and caters to more than 120 customers. The lounge features Air New Zealand's signature sleek design with four different seating zones to suit the needs of customers, including a café as well as business, lounge and quiet areas. A self-service food buffet and drinks station are also available.
Air New Zealand's General Manager Customer Experience Anita Hawthorne says it's fantastic to be able to offer customers flying out of Dunedin a lounge with 50 percent more seating than the previous space.
"Dunedin is a key port on Air New Zealand's domestic network and we look forward to welcoming customers to enjoy this new facility," says Ms Hawthorne.
Dunedin Airport CEO Richard Roberts says the airport is very proud to be involved with Air New Zealand and the amazing upgrade and extension of the lounge.
"Our ongoing work with Air NZ to drive demand continues to increase people through our airport, so to have this new facility is a wonderful example of working better together," says Mr Roberts.
The new Dunedin lounge is part of Air New Zealand's four year $100 million programme to develop its network of lounges and follows the opening of lounges in Auckland, Sydney, Brisbane, Nadi, Melbourne, Wellington, Queenstown, Hamilton, Invercargill and Palmerston North.
