Australian carrier Qantas has announced that it will start construction of its new multimillion dollar International Premium Lounge at Brisbane Airport in the coming few weeks.
The all-new lounge will be open for customers from October this year. Qantas has announced that a single International Premium Lounge will replace the existing Brisbane International First and Business Lounges.
Commenting on the multi-million dollar investment, Qantas Head of Customer Product and Service Development Philip Capps said that it would deliver a new benchmark in premium travel from Queensland’s capital.
“The new Brisbane International Premium Lounge highlights our continued investment in the entire customer journey,” he added.
Qantas will also commence a complete redesign of its domestic terminal lounges, in the coming months and also build a new lounge precinct with a new Business Lounge and refreshed Qantas Club, including a new Valet experience, with a staggered opening planned from early 2017.
“Brisbane and broader Queensland is one of our most important markets. We started direct daily services to Tokyo last year, increased seasonal services to New Zealand and have nearly finished our A330 aircraft upgrade at the Brisbane Maintenance Facility.”
The International First and Business Lounges will be closed from 29 June and the new International Premium Lounge will open in October.
