Qantas has officially opened its new lounge at London Heathrow Terminal 3. The lounge opens to passengers on Wednesday 29 November 2017.
Designed by Woods Bagot the lounge is split over two levels and features:
– An at seat dining area with a la carte menus
– Hot and cold buffet food
– A marble cocktail bar, overlooked by a brass chandelier
– A separate gin bar
– An all day barista coffee service
– A “Quench” hydration station with tisane, fruit infused water, sparkling water
– Six shower suites
As you can see from the pictures and video below wood and marble feature extensively throughout. Whilst Qantas lounges outside of Australia are relatively few and far between this is a typically high quality addition.
The lounge is open from 8am to 8.30pm daily. Passengers flying business and first class on Oneworld airlines are eligible to enter the lounge as are Oneworld Sapphire and Emerald cardholders. Qantas Club members and Emirates Skywards Platinum and Gold customers are also eligible.
This latest lounge means Heathrow Terminal 3 is something of a boon for those flying business and first class on Oneworld alliance carriers and Oneworld frequent flyers. Passengers now have a choice of the new Qantas lounge, Cathay Pacific’s highly regarded business and first class lounges, the BA Galleries Club and First class lounges and American Airlines lounges. American Airlines is expected to upgrade its Flagship lounge dining.
