FTL Lounge News – 2013 Summer Special
The 2013 Summer Special for Frequent Travellers — there’s no better way to start your holiday!
With Lufthansa, the relaxation begins even before you fly off on your well-deserved summer holiday: this year once again Frequent Travellers have the option of purchasing lounge access for their whole family.
The offer applies from 1 July to 31 August 2013 to all Lufthansa Business Lounges within Germany and the USA and at Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport. The necessary voucher can be bought for the one-off price of €40 or $50 at the Lufthansa ticket counter at your departure airport or directly at the lounge reception desk in Frankfurt, Munich and Dusseldorf airports.
Besides the Frequent Traveller, access is available to their spouse or partner as well as an unlimited number of children under the age of 18, provided that they are all travelling together on the same Lufthansa-operated flight.
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. A new Senator Lounge will be built on the site of the former First Class Lounge, with a planned opening in the second quarter of 2013.
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.

Moreover, since 1 September 2012 the contract lounges have no longer been available.**

Free surfing in Lufthansa Lounges
To enable Lufthansa lounge guests worldwide to use the full freedom of the Internet without restriction, since 1 July 2011 Lufthansa will be providing WLAN free of charge via Telekom network in its lounges. Whether they are resting in a Relax Chair or enjoying a little snack in the bistro - passengers can access the Internet from any location they want in the lounge. With this free service, Lufthansa is meeting the wishes of numerous passengers who for a number of years have been able to surf wirelessly, answer e-mails or access their own company’s network (VPN).

From now on Frequent Travellers can take children up to the age of 12 with them into selected Lufthansa Business Lounges for a fee of €15 or US$20.
