Qantas has today unveiled its new Regional Lounge at Broome Airport to help meet the growing demand for premium air travel to and from the region.
Qantas Domestic Chief Executive Officer Lyell Strambi said the expansion of the lounge had improved facilities for members and guests and provided a fresh new customer experience.
“With thousands of Qantas passengers moving through the terminal each week, we have seen first-hand the significant growth in leisure and regional business travel to Broome” said Mr Strambi.
“The extension of the Lounge will help cater for the increased traffic and give passengers more room to relax and work prior to their flight.
“Featuring new work and rest areas, the new Broome lounge will offer complimentary light refreshments, magazines and newspapers, high speed Wi-Fi and Foxtel.
“The showpiece of the lounge however is the fantastic view of the tarmac. Qantas customers can now enjoy watching aircraft landing and taking off from the airport.
“The lounge also features artwork from local indigenous artists Caroline Nuidoo and Roseanne Patrick.”
Mr Strambi said despite pressures on the airline group, Qantas would continue to invest in its customer proposition.
“It is our commitment to having the best fleet, network, service, lounges and frequent flyer proposition that make the airline the number one choice for business and leisure travel.”
AirlineRatings.com’s recently awarded Qantas the ‘Best Lounge’ offering out of 450 international airlines across the globe.
In addition to Qantas’ 12 Qantas Clubs located in major cities and towns across Australia, the airline also offers 12 Regional Lounges located in Broome, Coffs Harbour, Devonport, Emerald, Gladstone, Kalgoorlie, Karratha, Launceston, Mackay, Port Hedland, Rockhampton and Tamworth.
The new Broome lounge is located on the mezzanine level next to check in.
