Darwin | Published on 30th September 2014 at 9:15

Qantas has today unveiled its new Darwin Qantas Club, promising customers an improved travel experience with more luxury and more space.

At over 1500 square metres (more than double the size of the previous lounge), the new Darwin Qantas Club provides seating for more than 350 guests, a business centre with Apple iMac computers and a meeting room, new bathroom and shower facilities, a barista service and a dedicated family zone featuring kids work stations, toys, books and games.

Other features of the lounge include new furniture, wireless internet, newspapers, magazines, Foxtel and a full service bar and buffet offering a selection of food and beverages.

Qantas Head of Australian Regional Operations Natalie Saulter said Darwin’s new Qantas Club is a testament to the airline’s ongoing investment in Darwin and customer experience.

“Qantas has a long history in the Northern Territory and we consider Darwin a very important part of our domestic network. Not only do we operate the most services in and out of the capital we are also the only airline to have a dedicated lounge for its customers.

“The new lounge has been designed to give customers a new level of comfort and convenience – from a sophisticated barista service providing the best coffee experience to a dedicated business centre with complimentary wireless, photocopying and fax,” said Ms Saulter.

“Customers can also expect better quality and fresher produce from our new onsite kitchen facilities.

“Newly installed beer taps will also complement our award winning range of in-lounge wines hand selected by the Qantas Wine Panel.”

The opening of the new Qantas Club coincides with Darwin Airport’s renovations. The terminal overhaul is set to vastly improve the airport facilities for all customers, including other Qantas Group airlines that operate through Darwin, QantasLink and Jetstar.

Qantas customers already enjoy the use of Faster, Smarter Check-In at Darwin airport which substantially reduces check-in times and enables customers to avoid unnecessary queues.

The Qantas Group operates around 80 per cent of all domestic flights to and within the Northern Territory. Jetstar has international services from Darwin to Singapore and Bali.
