British airport lounge operator No1 Lounges has this week launched its latest airport lounge together with airline partner Virgin Australia at Brisbane Airport’s International Terminal. This follows the opening of The House at Sydney and Melbourne in 2018.
The innovative My Lounge – Home of Virgin Australia boasts a unique social lounging experience and is the closest lounge situated by the departure gates in the airport. Guests can walk from the lounge to most departure gates in just five minutes.
No1 Lounge’s created My Lounge – Home of Virgin Australia in close collaboration with its partner, Virgin Australia, to provide the airline’s guests with a unique co-branded experience. Complimentary and guaranteed access to the lounge will be available to all eligible Virgin Australia Business Class guests, and Platinum and Gold members of the Velocity Frequent Flyer Program, as well as Virgin Australia Lounge Members travelling to New Zealand.
Checked-in passengers from other airlines will also be permitted to use the lounge on a pay-per-use basis. Guests can pre-book access online or in-person on the day of travel, for $60 and $70 respectively.
No1 Lounges Chief Operating Officer, John Upton, said “We are delighted to be bringing our innovative social lounging concept to Brisbane. Situated by the departure gates, My Lounge redefines convenience, meaning thousands of passengers, regardless of the airline they are travelling with or the class of ticket they hold, can eat, drink and relax in style before making the short walk to the departure gates to fly off overseas.”
Virgin Australia Group Chief Executive Officer, Paul Scurrah, said he was thrilled to be working with No1 Lounges and providing eligible Virgin Australia guests travelling internationally from Brisbane with the brand new lounge experience.
“We’re always looking for ways to make travelling easier and more comfortable for our guests and we know they’re going to love the convenience of being closer to their departure gate so they can spend more time relaxing in this fantastic lounge before their Virgin Australia flight.”
The lounge offers a selection of comfy sofas and an eclectic mix of seating areas, unrivalled runway views and unlimited Wi-Fi, as well as television, newspapers, glossy magazines and charging points as standard. Guests will also enjoy delicious, locally sourced hot and cold dishes from an all-day grazing counter, barista-made coffees and self-serve drinks and DIY cocktails – including the ‘flamingo’, an exclusive signature aperitif presented by Virgin Australia – from a stylish island bar.
Travelers can book online at no1lounges.com/brisbane or visit My Lounge in person to purchase access on the day.
