No1 Lounges seems to be getting deeper and deeper in to bed with airlines across the world, and has just launched its latest airport lounge partnership with Virgin Australia at Brisbane Airport’s International Terminal. This follows the opening of The House at Sydney and Melbourne in 2018 and their pre-existing partnership with Etihad.
The new lounge dubbed ‘My Lounge – Home of Virgin Australia’ boasts a more social, residential lounging experience in comparison to the other Virgin Australia lounges. Guests can walk from the lounge to most departure gates in just five minutes.
Created in close collaboration with its partner, Virgin Australia, the lounge provides guests with a unique co-branded experience. Complimentary and guaranteed access to the lounge will be available to all eligible Virgin Australia Business Class guests, and Platinum and Gold members of the Velocity Frequent Flyer Program, as well as Virgin Australia Lounge Members travelling to New Zealand.
The lounge offers a selection of lounge sofas and an eclectic mix of seating zones, fantastic runway views and unlimited Wi-Fi, as well as TVs, newspapers, glossy magazines and charging points as standard. Guests will also enjoy delicious, locally sourced hot and cold dishes from an all-day grazing counter, barista-made coffees and self-serve drinks and DIY cocktails – including the ‘flamingo’, an exclusive signature aperitif presented by Virgin Australia – from a stylish island bar.
Virgin Australia Group Chief Executive Officer, Paul Scurrah, said he was thrilled to be working with No1 Lounges and providing eligible Virgin Australia guests travelling internationally from Brisbane with the brand new lounge experience. “We’re always looking for ways to make travelling easier and more comfortable for our guests and we know they’re going to love the convenience of being closer to their departure gate so they can spend more time relaxing in this fantastic lounge before their Virgin Australia flight.”
Naturally being a co-branded pay-for lounge means passengers from other airlines will also be permitted to use the lounge on a pay-per-use basis. Guests can pre-book access online or in-person on the day of travel, for AU$60 and AU$70 respectively.
