Qantas Prepares For Perth-UK Travellers With New Perth Lounge


17 hours on an aircraft may daunt even the most seasoned of travellers, especially those in economy. But Qantas is doing all it can to re-assure passengers that they are trying to make the Kangaroo route as comfortable as possible. While Perth might not be as direct-a-route as flying via Dubai, they are making Perth the most obvious stop-over point by investing in a new lounge designed as a respite from one of the longest treks in aviation.


Opening prior to the inaugural LHR-PER-MEL flight, the lounge will be available to frequent travellers and business class passengers. Situated in T3/T4, the new lounge will feature outdoor space – a refreshing idea for those who have experienced the best part of a day in an air-conditioned environment.

It’s not just those in business class that will enjoy customer-friendly improvements. A new duty-free area as well as expedited immigration and customs areas will help streamline the QF9/10 flights. It’s not just London travellers, Melbourne, Singapore and Auckland will also have access to the new business class lounge.


The International Transit Lounge has been designed as a collaboration between leading firm SUMU Design and award-winning Australian industrial designer David Caon who is also the lead designer for the interiors of the Qantas Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner. The redesign of the T3/T4 precinct was created by architecture firm Noxon Giffen

The transit lounge will offer more than a dozen shower suites, space to refresh and a wellness facility. The outdoor patio provides fresh air and natural light, with a barbeque grill and Neil Perry designed Australian-style BBQ menu.
