Qantas transforms departure experience in Brisbane
Qantas opened the doors to its new Domestic Business Lounge and Premium Lounge Entry as part of the airline’s multi-million dollar upgrade at Brisbane Airport.
The upgrade began in October 2016 with the opening of a new International Lounge and will be completed in the coming months with an upgraded Qantas Club and new Chairmans Lounge at the domestic terminal.
Premium Lounge Entry will offer top tier Frequent Flyers an exclusive check-in area, bag drop, security screening and escalator with direct access to the new Lounge Precinct.
The Domestic Business Lounge is 30 percent bigger than the previous facility with a luxurious design inspired by the beauty of Queensland’s landscape.
Qantas Creative Director of Food, Beverage & Service Neil Perry has designed seasonal menus and introduced a new dining feature, The Cantina, serving freshly made Mexican dishes including empanadas, soft corn tacos, roast sweetcorn and quesadillas.
The lounge will feature a full bar serving premium Australian wines, Rockpool Mixologist-designed cocktails and craft beer, and a wine bar open from midday. A generous fresh hot and cold buffet will also be available. There is also a stylish new communal coffee bar within the lounge precinct.
The lounge features a work zone with wireless printing, power and data outlets throughout, Wi-Fi, TVs with Foxtel, shower suites with ASPAR by Aurora skincare products and an AccorHotels service experience.
Qantas will shortly open a revamped Valet facility that offers direct terminal access. Eligible customers will be able to access Premium Lounge Entry directly from Valet.
The Brisbane Domestic Business Lounge is open to Qantas customers travelling in Business, Platinum and Platinum One Frequent Flyers, eligible oneworld Emerald members and Emirates and China Eastern Platinum customers.
