Lufthansa Opens New First Class Lounge in Frankfurt

By Pardhasaradhi Gonuguntla

An oasis of calm and relaxation awaits Lufthansa First Class passengers and HON Circle members at the newly opened First Class Lounge in Concourse B at Frankfurt Airport. An exclusive First Class Spa area within the lounge offers a retreat from the every day travel norm, with six spa-quality bath facilities — two of them with Jacuzzis. For the first time at a Lufthansa Lounge, two spa treatment rooms help guests refresh and unwind with a range of cosmetic treatments and massages which can be paid for with Miles & More award points.

“Frequent flyers and business travelers are constantly on the go — so time becomes a precious asset. Far removed from the hustle and bustle of the airport, we offer guests at the new First Class Lounge an opportunity to use the time to relax in an exclusive atmosphere or to work,” said Lufthansa Hub Manager Dr. Karl-Rudolph Rupprecht.

With a total floor space of more than 13,000 square feet –slightly bigger than the Frankfurt First Class Terminal — the new lounge can seat some 100 guests. It also provides the same exclusive amenities that Lufthansa’s First Class lounges have become known for. A spacious comfort area with relaxing leather armchairs offers a view of the airport apron and invites guests to sit back and unwind. Two quiet rooms with leather day beds and Bang & Olufsen sound systems are available for guests wishing to rest or sleep. Fully-enclosed office units equipped with telephones, PCs with Internet access and writing amenities provide an opportunity for guests to work as they await their departure. Complimentary WLAN access is also available throughout the lounge.

Guests looking for some fun can take advantage of the new Wii Activity Room at the First Class Lounge, offering a choice of Wii Sport an d Wii Fit games. The game CDs, balance board and remote controls are available from the Lounge Concierge Desk.

A separate Cigar Lounge features a view of the airport apron as well as a snack bar, drink selections and increased air exchange rate for a pleasant atmosphere without the smell of smoke.

International culinary selections provided by the world-renown Viennese caterer Do & Co pamper guests in the restaurant and bistro area. An extensive buffet is provided or meals can be ordered à la carte. Dishes are freshly prepared in front of lounge guests and served by waiters. In the bar area, an assortment of beverages and spirits are offered in an open, inviting atmosphere.

A new addition to Lufthansa’s Lounge product is the limousine service for passengers whose flights are departing from Terminal areas A and C – or, in the case of flights to a non-Schengen or non-EU destination, from an apron position. This service was previously only available at the Frankfurt First Class Terminal. In addition, passengers arriving at or transferring from an apron position will be taken by limousine from their aircraft to the Bus Arrivals point in Terminal B, where they will be met by a dedicated Lufthansa staff member and directed to the new First Class Lounge.
