Air New Zealand has today welcomed customers to the airline’s first lounge dedicated to regional travellers out of Wellington. Located on the first floor of the airport’s main terminal building ahead of the new centralised security screening point, the lounge offers seating for more than 100 customers.
Air New Zealand Chief Marketing and Customer Officer Mike Tod says the new space is open to all lounge eligible customers but was designed specifically for those travelling to regional ports.
“The lounge’s proximity to regional gates will give customers travelling on regional services more time to relax or get some work done in the lead up to their flight.
“There are a range of spaces and facilities to suit all types of travellers including business stations with power and USB connections, dining tables for groups of various sizes and quiet nooks to read or relax in,” says Mr Tod.
The lounge also features self-service food buffet and drinks stations as well as barista made coffee which customers can order direct from their smartphone or tablet through the airline’s popular mobile app.
With large windows with sweeping views over the airport’s public atrium and beyond to the tarmac, the lounge is designed in the sleek, modern style of the airline’s other recently opened lounges in Auckland, Sydney, Brisbane, Nadi, Invercargill, Hamilton and Queenstown.
Air New Zealand is part way through a four year, $100 million programme to redevelop lounges at ports right across its network.
