Qantas has announced a major upgrade of the Qantas Domestic Business Lounge and Qantas Club at Melbourne Airport. The announcement made was made during the announcement of the Qantas Results yesterday.
Under the upgraded and reconfigured lounges, passengers will be offered more seating and new dining options.
While the two lounges will differ in features and service, they will both offer the following elements:
- an all-day barista coffee service
- seasonal dining with hot and cold menu options
- Quench hydration station with a selection of premium non-alcoholic beverages
- business facilities including wireless printing and high speed wi-fi
- an increased number of device-charging access points
- service experience by Accor.
While the two lounges will occupy the same space overall as the current lounges, there will be substantal reconfiguration of the space.
