Qantas announces new Sydney international business lounge

The national carrier’s Sydney International Business Lounge will undergo a multimillion dollar rebuild, providing travellers with a completely new design, at least 30 per cent more seating and a new signature dining experience.

This latest in a series of lounge upgrades was announced along with several other investments including new interiors for the QantasLink regional aircraft at its half year results today.

Qantas Group CEO Alan Joyce said the lounge investment demonstrated the airline’s commitment to world class customer service and leading design.

“Our Business lounge in Sydney is one of the most visited on the international network, so we look forward to upgrading the space with a completely new design and a lot more capacity,” said Mr Joyce.

“Our customers have told us that ample space, privacy and ambience are what they value most in their lounge experience, so the overall design of the new lounge will be tailored with this in mind.”

Construction is scheduled to start in the third quarter of this calendar year and will be completed in stages to allow ongoing lounge access, targeting completion at the end of 2019.

Features will include:

  • Neil Perry designed dining concept;
  • Full-service bar;
  • Generous business facilities and high speed Wi-Fi;
  • Dedicated family zone;
  • Service experience by Sofitel; and
  • Luxury bathroom facilities.
