Swiss International Air Lines (SWISS) has opened a redesigned Lounge Center A at Zurich Airport. The new centre, which is mainly aimed at short-haul travellers, extends to a Business and a Senator Lounge and boasts a modern zonal concept with a range of privacy options, market hall-style food areas, elegant Swiss-made furniture and clear SWISS design lines.
Travellers in all classes will also soon enjoy the airport’s remodelled Terminal 1, including an upgraded SWISS check-in zone with new design elements, a new desk concept and new waiting areas.
A modern zonal concept and top Swiss design
In addition to the traditional reception desk, each of the separate entrances to the new Business and Senator Lounges will feature two automated entry gates permitting swift boarding-pass access. Inside, the new-look facilities adopt the same modern zonal concept which exist on Dock E lounges, by enabling guests to select the level of privacy they seek to meet their specific needs, from lounge niches, a bar area with views of the Airside Center, workstations and even individual offices to a relaxation room complete with inviting loungers.
For travellers wishing to freshen up before or after their flight, the new facilities offer five showers that are accessible from either lounge. The lounges’ food areas have been devised along market-hall lines, and each include a large bistro section as well as a front cooking zone.
The design and interior of both the new lounges also follow the example of the existing Dock E complex: with their bright oiled-Swiss-oak parquet floors and their elegant furniture from such top Swiss designers as Vitra and deSede, the new lounges offer both a consistent SWISS-style look and a living-room ambience in which every SWISS premium traveller should feel genuinely at home.
The new Lounge Center A will be open daily from 5.30am to 10.30pm. The SWISS Business Lounge will be available to all Business Class travellers of SWISS and the Lufthansa Group, Miles & More Frequent Travellers and Business Class travellers on further Star Alliance airlines.
The Senator Lounge will be exclusively available to Miles & More Senators, Star Alliance Gold Members and First Class travellers on Star Alliance member airlines.
Zurich check-in redesign
SWISS’s ongoing ground services enhancements are benefiting Economy Class travellers, too.
Between now and the end of this year SWISS will be comprehensively modernising its check-in zone in Zurich’s Terminal 1. By adding new design elements and by adopting a new desk concept for groups, families and premium travellers and creating new waiting areas, Swiss International Air Lines aims to further raise the airport comfort and convenience for its customers in all classes of travel, while offering them a consistent SWISS travel experience.
