Australian flag carrier Qantas has announced its plans to renovate the international business lounge at Sydney Airport, a waiting area dedicated for passengers traveling in business class, Gold Qantas Frequent Flyers and above, Qantas Club Members as well as Emirates Gold Skyward Members.

The upgraded lounge aims to provide passengers with a completely new design, at least 30 percent more seating and a new dining experience.

Qantas Group CEO Alan Joyce said in a press release that the business lounge in Sydney was among the most visited international networks.

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

The concept of the lounge will reportedly be developed by David Caon, principal designer of the Qantas Dreamliner interior as well as the airline’s lounges in Singapore and Hong Kong, in collaboration with Australian architecture firm Bates Smart.

In regard to facilities, the business lounge will feature a Neil Perry-designed dining concept, a full service bar, business facilities, Wi-Fi, a dedicated family zone, a service experience by Sofitel and luxury bathroom facilities.

Renovation is slated to start in the third quarter of this year. During the process, the lounge will be completed in stages to allow ongoing lounge access. The renovation is targeted to be completed at the end of 2019. (jes/kes)
