Air New Zealand Unveils New Auckland International Lounge

Air New Zealand has unveiled a new international lounge in Auckland, which can seat more than 375 customers comfortably and is significantly larger than the old lounge.

The new modern Auckland lounge was designed by Gensler – the same architecture firm that also designed Air New Zealand’s new lounge at Sydney Airport as well as Star Alliance lounge it manages at Los Angeles International Airport.

“Also recognising that our customers travel for different reasons and have different needs, we’ve created a mix of separate zones to offer the utmost comfort and convenience for those looking to relax, refresh or get some work done before they fly,” said Christopher Luxon,  chief executive of Air New Zealand.

To accommodate for the different purposes of travel, the lounge has been separated into different areas: A business zone with Wi-Fi and printing facilities, a kids’ area and a dining as well as buffet and bar area.

The new lounge is another milestone in a four-year lounge upgrade program.
