Five new lounges provide more space for passengers at Frankfurt / Lounges in new design

2012-10-9 — / — Tomorrow morning the new A-Plus Concourse at Frankfurt Airport will go into operation, and at the same time Lufthansa will open five new lounges there. A First Class Lounge, a Senator Lounge and a Business Lounge are located on the EU Departures and Arrivals level. For passengers in the so-called Non-Schengen area there is a Senator Lounge and a Business Lounge.

With a floor space of almost 2,100 sq. metres, the Senator Lounge in the Non-Schengen area is Lufthansa’s largest lounge worldwide and offers a full range of facilities. In future, passengers at Frankfurt Airport will have a choice of 13 Lufthansa lounges plus the First Class Terminal with a total floor space of more than 17,500 sq. metres. In the first half of 2013, Concourse A will also include a refurbished Senator Lounge.

Senator and Business lounges in the new lounge design

The two Senator and Business lounges are fitted out in the new design, which was developed in close cooperation with passengers. Following a tendering process in which international architects and designers were invited to take part, customer focus groups had an opportunity to appraise the various lounge concepts submitted. Customer evaluations had a decisive influence on the development of the new design. Amongst other things, the new Frankfurt lounges feature backlit walls with, for example, forest motifs, which generate a relaxing atmosphere. Selected materials, including leather and oak, enhance the welcoming, feel-good atmosphere.

The Lufthansa lounge network is one of the largest worldwide. Sixty Lufthansa lounges and some 900 lounges operated by Star Alliance and cooperation partners invite travellers to linger, unwind and enjoy the relaxing atmosphere.
