Qantas begins construction of sparkling new domestic business lounge

Treasuring the needs of the contemporary business traveller, Qantas has begun the construction of its brand new domestic business lounge at Perth Airport, Australia, coinciding with its move to a dedicated Qantas precinct next year.

“The new lounge will ensure our business customers receive the same high level of service on the ground as they receive in the sky,” explained domestic head of customer strategy, Qantas, Philip Capps.

The lounge is due to introduce 30 per cent more lounge capacity into the Perth market and will be made available to those travelling in Qantas’ well respected business class, Platinum and Platinum One Frequent Flyers.

Upon completion, it will offer access to Terminals 3 and 4, where the Qantas Group will soon have exclusive use for domestic and regional services alike.  

Capps further commented: “At 1,365m², the lounge will have capacity for over 350 customers and will be equipped to give them the space, state of the art facilities, quality service and luxuries that Qantas business lounges are renowned for. 

From a dedicated work zone with meeting room and conference facilities to a dedicated dining area offering a ‘dish of the day’ and all day barista service, the business lounge will give our most frequent flyers the ability to work or unwind in luxury.

“Combined with the latest in design innovation and service delivery the new lounge will also offer a number of exciting new food and beverage initiatives raising the bar in both product and service, across not only our network but the entire domestic market,” Capps concluded.

An ideal haven for those travelling on business, the lounge will also comprise of new furniture, wireless Internet, newspapers, magazines, Foxtel and a full service bar and buffet, offering a variety of food and beverages.
