Qantas to build luxury lounge in Heathrow

Travel News 04 Mar 2016

London is the location for Qantas’ next flagship global lounge, with construction on a new, dedicated facility at Heathrow Airport to begin in September 2016.

The premium lounge will occupy a split-level space in Terminal 3 that will have capacity for approximately 230 people and 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.

Alan Joyce - Qantas Group chief executive , was quoted to have said that now is the right time for fresh investment in the national carrier’s presence at the world’s second-busiest international airport, particularly given the continued strong performance of Qantas International.
