Qantas: International Lounge Openings
With borders open, and international passenger air travel back, some of those international lounges are coming back online. The dust covers are being removed, the hand sanitiser being topped up, and the sneeze guards being installed or repositioned. The perspex industry must be profiting wildly!
- Hong Kong Lounge – won’t be reopening
- London Heathrow Lounge – ‘December’ – maybe the 18th
- Los Angeles International lounge – 18 December 2021 – use the Star Alliance lounge at Tom Bradly in the meantime
- Melbourne International First lounge – 22 November – when flights to Singapore start
- Melbourne International Business lounge – sometime in 2022
- Singapore International First lounge – 22 November
- Singapore International Business lounge – TBA – when enough international travellers to make it economic
- Sydney International First Class Lounge – 1 November 2021
- Sydney International Business Lounge – TBA – when enough international travellers to make it economic
So you are unlikely to be lounge-less as international travel from and to Australia recommenced, but things won’t quite be as they were. For some, you will have an opportunity to experience the Qantas First lounges in Melbourne and Sydney, which you wouldn’t be able to unless you are already a Platinum or above Frequent Flyer or are holding a first-class ticket!
