An oasis of calm and relaxation awaits Lufthansa First Class passengers and members of the HON Circle at the new First Class Lounge in Concourse B at Frankfurt Airport following the opening of an exclusive First Class Spa on the premises.The spa’s extensive bathing area is equipped with six superior-quality shower rooms (two of them with jacuzzis), and - for the first time at a Lufthansa Lounge - two massage rooms. Here, guests can freshen up, unwind, recharge their batteries and also choose from a range of cosmetic treatments and massages.
Lufthansa Hub Manager Dr. Karl-Rudolph Rupprecht, said, “Frequent flyers and business travellers are constantly on the go, and 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 in hand to relax in an exclusive atmosphere or to work.”
The new lounge in Concourse B, which has a total floor space of 1,220 square metres, can seat more than 100 guests. It also provides all the amenities that form an integral part of the upscale service at Lufthansa’s First Class lounges.
A spacious comfort area with relaxing armchairs with a view of the airport apron invites guests to sit back and unwind. Two quiet rooms are available for anyone who would like to withdraw and have a snooze. Enclosed office units equipped with telephones, PCs with Internet access and writing utensils provide an opportunity for guests to work until shortly before their departure. Free WLAN access is also available. Culinary delights are on offer in the restaurant and bistro area, with its excellent choice of menus and drinks. A varying buffet is provided, and meals can also be ordered à la carte. Dishes are freshly prepared in view of the guests. In the bar area, an extensive range of spirits and drinks is offered in an open, relaxed atmosphere. Guests can contact the central Service Desk with any general enquiries, such as rebooking a flight or changing their seat.
A new addition to Lufthansa’s Lounge product is the limousine service for passengers whose flight is 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 First Class Terminal. Passengers arriving at or transferring from an apron position will also be taken by limousine from their aircraft to the Bus Arrivals point in Terminal B, where they will be met by a Lufthansa staff member and directed to the new lounge.
Lufthansa currently operates about 65 lounges worldwide with a total floor space of over 28,000 square metres. Until 2013, Lufthansa will be investing about 150 million euros in constructing new lounges and refurbishing existing ones in order to further expand and enhance its airport lounge facilities for customers.
