Virgin Australia to open refresh and remodel lounges – including Sydney
Australian Business Traveller reports that Virgin Australia is working on upgrading its Gold Coast, Sydney and Perth lounges.
The upgrade of the Sydney lounge is well overdue. It's currently looking dowdy and threadbare. I think its currently a bit of a disincentive to frequent flyers and business travellers.
The new lounge will use a similar design to that employed in Melbourne and Brisbane. ABT suggests that they may be able to update without closing the lounge, with an opening slated for the end of the year
Perth gets and expansion for another 100 pax as an interim measure until the new pier for Virgin opens in 2014.
