The multi-million dollar project will include the construction of a new “lounge precinct” as part of the expansion of the airport’s domestic terminal. This will include the creation of a new Business Lounge and Chairman’s Lounge for premium passengers, in addition to the redesign of the existing Qantas Club.
Qantas’ existing First and Business Lounges at Brisbane’s International Terminal will also be redesigned and merged into a single lounge experience, similar to recent openings in Singapore and Hong Kong.
“During the past two years we have invested in new lounges, upgrades to our A330 aircraft and rolled out more in-flight entertainment options than ever before,” said Qantas’ group CEO, Alan Joyce.
“Brisbane is a crucial hub providing connections between our major domestic routes and services into regional areas as well as international flights to Los Angeles, Singapore, Hong Kong and as of a few weeks ago, daily flights to Tokyo.”
Work on all of the new lounges will begin before the end of the year, and will be gradually completed through 2016 and early 2017.
