Here’s some more positive news for Brussels, after opening ‘The Loft’ in Brussels Airport’s Terminal A in 2014, Brussels Airlines has now also inaugurated a new lounge in Terminal B, called ‘The Suite’. This is excellent news for passengers who aren’t travelling within the Schengen zone.
Compared to the previous B Pier lounge, The Suite is double the size and offers a contemporary design and relaxation to frequent flyers and Business Class passengers before their Brussels Airlines flight to the United States, Canada, Russia, Israel, the United Kingdom and Morocco.
We reported on the airline’s launch of their new lounge 18 months ago called The Loft, which was airy, spacious and well designed, reflecting the airline’s recent brand refresh and new business class cabin product. The bad news was that the lounge was only accessible to passengers travelling between Schengen countries. Since the airline started flying to the US and Canada, another modern lounge, especially for the prestigious long haul destinations was required.
The lounge can accommodate 160 visitors and mirrors the layout of its counterpart in Terminal A. Composed of different areas for different travel needs, there is a work space, a quiet zone featuring comfortable seats, a food and drink area that offers a wide selection of beverages, snacks and salads and a reading area.
These spaces are much more airy than the original lounge that the airline offered in terminal B. At peak moments, the capacity of The Suite can be further expanded offering additional space for 100 more guests.
Like The Loft, there is a definite Belgian spirit running through the design. As well as paired back, light tonal wooden desks and minimalist chairs, details include Belgian beers, Belgian newspapers and magazines, Belgian culinary specialties and impressions of the surrealist art of René Magritte.
“With ‘The Suite’, Brussels Airlines underlines once again its role as the leading airline in Brussels”, says Brussels Airlines Chief Commercial Officer Lars Redeligx. “Every year, over 500,000 guests enjoy the Brussels Airlines’ “extra smile” in one of our lounges in Brussels. Following the opening of our amazing lounge ‘The Loft’, the launch of ‘The Suite’ illustrates once more our dedication to continuously improve the travel experience for our guests, both in the air and on the ground.”
