As part of American Express’ growing investment in rewards, benefits and experiences for Australian Card Members, the global credit card company this week announced plans to open an American Express Lounge at Melbourne International Airport later this year. This will be the brand’s second airport lounge in Australia since the opening of the American Express Lounge at Sydney Airport in November 2014.
Like Sydney, Melbourne’s American Express Lounge will be operated by global airport service specialists Plaza Premium Group, and will offer guests everything you can expect from a premium airline lounge: barista-made coffee, a self-service food buffet and drink station, complimentary Wi-Fi and business facilities, as well as local and international newspapers and magazines.
Melbourne Tullamarine is an important transport hub for many Australian and international travellers and the new airport lounge will be a welcome travel benefit for card members. It joins the brand’s growing Global Lounge Collection, where eligible American Express card members have access to more than 1000 lounges, in 500 cities across 120 countries, with Philadelphia and Hong Kong lounges also planned to open in 2017.
