WELLINGTON: Air New Zealand is set to unveil its newest international lounge at Brisbane Airport. The 771 square-metre lounge will cater for nearly 200 customers when it opens on Wednesday, Air New Zealand said in a statement.
Designed by US-based architecture firm, Gensler, the lounge features lofty ceilings, large windows and views of Brisbane city and into the lower terminal. Spaces include a cafe area with self-service food buffet and beverage station, a children’s play area and family space, quiet nooks, business tables and bathroom facilities.
The Brisbane lounge is part of a four-year $100 million programme to develop the airline’s lounge network, with four new domestic Koru lounges and six new international lounges planned. So far lounges at Sydney International, Auckland International, Auckland Regional and Invercargill airports have been completed.
Air New Zealand general manager Carrie Hurihanganui said the opening of the Brisbane lounge was part of the airline’s commitment to improving customer experience. “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.
