Passengers with lounge access can now look forward to having an even more relaxed lounge stay before their departure in the Terminal 1A Schengen area at Frankfurt Airport. Lufthansa opened its Panorama Lounge operated by Lufthansa On December 11 in response to increasing passenger numbers creating high demand for the two existing Business lounges in that area. The opportunity to lease space opposite Gate A26, meant that an additional 11,840sq ft (1,100m²) are now available for Lufthansa Business Lounge guests, thereby increasing the number of seats available in this area by 40%.
Dr Andreas Otto, Lufthansa Group product manager for premium airlines and chief commercial officer Austrian Airlines said: “I am delighted that by renting the Panorama Lounge we can once again offer our lounge guests the service they have come to expect from us. In addition, we have planned several further renovation and expansion measures in the lounge area at our Frankfurt hub, which will further improve the lounge experience for our guests”.
Lufthansa said the highlight of the Panorama Lounge is its breath-taking view of the activity on the Frankfurt Airport apron. The lounge, which currently differs from the usual Lufthansa design, has a main area with many seating options as well as a food and beverage buffet. It also offers several smaller rooms for working or relaxing, a smoking area, additional buffets and a relaxation room. The lounge also has four showers.
The Panorama Lounge is open from Mondays to Fridays between 6am and 9pm.
