Qantas to Open Split-Level Dedicated Airport Lounge at London Heathrow

Qantas is to begin construction on a dedicated airport lounge at London Heathrow Airport in September 2016.

The premium lounge will occupy a split-level space in Terminal 3 that will have capacity for approximately 230 people. It will offer views over the Heathrow airfield when it opens in early 2017.

Its design will combine the signature features of Qantas award-winning facilities in other ports with local touches to make the design and experience distinctively London.

The Kangaroo Route is at the heart of Qantas identity and London remains one of our most important destinations, said Qantas Group CEO, Alan Joyce. We want the first dedicated Qantas lounge at Heathrow to be something special. Our lounges in Australia and overseas are often named among the worlds best. Customers love them and we make regular improvements based on what they tell us theyd like to see next. Were very proud of the new lounges weve launched over the past three years in Singapore, Hong Kong, Los Angeles and Perth - with Brisbane to follow this year - and were excited to be bringing this successful formula to our customers in London.

Features of the new lounge will include:

Rockpool menu and dining experience;

Full-service bar with Rockpool cocktails;

Full bathroom facilities including showers;

Business facilities; and

Childrens zone.

Passengers eligible to use the lounge will include:

Qantas Club members;

Qantas Business and First Class passengers;

Platinum One, Platinum and Gold members of the Qantas Frequent Flyer program; and

Passengers travelling in tiered cabins on partner airlines with a QF code.
