Lufthansa Opens Elite Welcome Lounge In Frankfurt

By Pardhasaradhi Gonuguntla

East Meadow – Lufthansa is adding another highlight to its range of services for premium customers with the opening of the Welcome Lounge at Frankfurt Airport – the first lounge of its kind in Lufthansa’s worldwide network. The lounge concept is geared to the needs of passengers arriving on long-haul Lufthansa flights and can be used exclusively by First and Business Class passengers as well as by status customers.

With a total floor area of nearly 13,000 square feet over two levels, the spacious lounge offers all the amenities needed to freshen up after an intercontinental flight. A modern shower area with 28 high-end showers is located on the lower level featuring an elegant design that invites guests to relax and refresh themselves after their flight. A concierge is on hand to allocate the shower facilities and also coordinate individual wishes such as the ironing service for HON Circle members, First Class guests and Senators.

The upper level offers a large comfort area with lounging armchairs and a quiet zone for relaxing. In the bistro area guests can enjoy a variety of snacks or help themselves to a breakfast buffet of hot and cold dishes. Wireless Internet is available throughout the lounge and dedicated workstations and free Internet terminals are accessible.

“The Welcome Lounge provides ideal conditions for our premium passengers to start the day feeling relaxed, regenerated and refreshed after a long night flight. In designing the facilities, we paid close heed to the wishes of our frequent flyers and top customers,” explained Dr. Karl-Rudolf Rupprecht, Lufthansa’s Senior Vice President Hub Management Frankfurt.
