Newark Airport (NY) — new Lufthansa combi-lounge opens
Lufthansa is expanding its lounge offer abroad. Due to its proximity to Manhattan, Newark Airport (EWR) in the state of New Jersey is an important destination for Lufthansa, along with John F. Kennedy Airport in New York City.
The new combi-lounge extends over 475 square metres, has a Business Lounge with 60 seats and a Senator Lounge with 69 seats. Visitors can make themselves comfortable in cosy armchairs and enjoy snacks and drinks at the bistro tables or at the bar counter.
The combi-lounge is resplendent in the new Lufthansa lounge design. Thanks to the larger windows, there is an excellent view over the apron. The catering, as in the three Lufthansa lounges at John F. Kennedy Airport, is provided by FLIK, a caterer with outstanding customer satisfaction ratings. If you have not checked in online or with your smartphone, as a First Class or Business Class passenger you can also use the ‘Fast Lanes’ at the security control for a preferential check-in.
The lounge is situated in Terminal B, B3, in close proximity to the Lufthansa departure gates. A new feature: as well as First Class passengers, HON Circle Members, Senators and Business Class passengers, Frequent Travellers and SWISS passengers entitled to lounge access may now also use the new Lufthansa lounges at Newark Airport.
The new Business Lounge at Frankfurt Airport — more room for a relaxing time before departure
Since 14 October 2013 Frankfurt Airport has had another Lufthansa Business Lounge. It is situated near Gate A26 on Level 3 and offers Business Class travellers and status customers, who are departing from Gates A20 to A42, the perfect opportunity for a stopover.
The lounge extends to a spacious 840 square metres and invites passengers to take a short break while they enjoy delicious snacks and beverages. The new Business Lounge will not only extend the total lounge area available at Frankfurt Airport, it will also relieve the pressure on the popular lounges in the new Pier A.
Once passengers have checked in online or via their mobile, handed in their baggage at the priority check-in in Hall A and used the fast lane to pass quickly through security, they can access the lounge in Pier A via the escalator next to Gate 26 or by taking the lift to Level 3.
After a relaxing stay in the new lounge, passengers can look forward to a calm and stress-free boarding: thanks to priority boarding, HON Circle Members, Senators, Star Alliance Gold card holders and Business Class passengers can take their seats on the aircraft before all other passengers — and so have enough time to stow their hand luggage and sit down without being rushed.
Passengers test eJournals in Frankfurt lounges
Until September Lufthansa will be providing digital newspapers and magazines free of charge in its Frankfurt lounges.
With Lufthansa eJournals guests in our Frankfurt lounges will have a large choice of digital newspapers and magazines available to them free of charge until the beginning of September. These can be downloaded via Wi-Fi in the lounge and read offline on mobile devices such as smartphones, laptops or tablets — even outside the lounge. You will therefore have access to your favourite reading material at any time in the lounge, on board your flight or on the move.
When visiting the lounge you can access the eJournals service via the online platform www.lh-ejournals.com. You will also have the option there of providing feedback on the new service, which will influence the decision on whether the trial period is extended.
Travel time is relaxation time — in the five new lounges in Lufthansa Pier A
With the opening of the new Lufthansa Pier A at Frankfurt Airport, the choice of lounges for our passengers is also being expanded. Since 10 October 2012 one First Class Lounge, two Senator Lounges and two Business Lounges, with a combined floor space of 7,600 m2, have been offering the greatest possible comfort — with plenty of room for guests to relax, work, enjoy a delicious snack or freshen up in the modern shower rooms. The new lounges are located opposite Gate A13 or A50/Z50*.
The newly designed Senator and Business Lounges also celebrate a first for Germany: as part of the design concept, Lufthansa WorldShop will showcase a selection of its exclusive products in a special display area. The highlight of the new First Class Lounge is the First Class library, which provides a choice of high-quality coffee-table books by DuMont, one of Germany’s most famous art publishers, and a limousine service to the aircraft.
With the opening of these new, significantly larger and centrally located lounges, the current lounges close to Gate A26 will be closed. As a result, the Senator Lounge and Business Lounge in the Schengen area, the one-class Tower Lounge in the non-Schengen area as well as the First Class Lounge on Level 3 will no longer be available.
The creation of the new lounges will increase the lounge space offered at Frankfurt by 5,500 square metres to a total of 17,300 square metres.
*A Business Lounge and a First Class Lounge are located in the Schengen area, Level 02, directly next to Gate A13. Passengers will find the Senator Lounge on the same level at Gate A50. Another Senator Lounge and Business Lounge are located in the non-Schengen area on Level 03, close to Gate Z50.
