Biggest Lufthansa lounge at Frankfurt Airport
Tuesday 29, June 2010
The Lufthansa lounge world encompasses around 60 lounges, worldwide, with total floor space of more than 28,000 square metres.
First dedicated lounge area for children / Summer special for frequent flyers
Spacious with even more room and variety – all that and more add to the attraction of the Lufthansa Business Lounge in Departure Area B at Frankfurt Airport after extensive renovation. Newly reopened right on time as the holiday season gets underway, the lounge will spring a surprise on passengers at the Terminal in the shape of a very special innovation: On an area of close to 1,400 square metres, the lounge offers a first-ever “Jet Friends” lounge for children alongside the customary comfort, bistro and work areas.
Besides a spacious comfort area equipped with leather armchairs and TVs, the bistro in the completely refurbished lounge serves hot and cold drinks, snacks, fruit and meals in a menu that varies with the time of day. In a separate rest room, guests can unwind and relax in peace and quiet or get some work finished in preparation for a business appointment at their destination. They can also freshen up in one of the five shower roooms in the bathroom area.
Fun and games in the first “JetFriends” children’s lounge
The biggest Lufthansa lounge in the airline’s global route network has a surprise in store for children on the move: The youngest among its clientele now have their own dedicated area to romp about in and play. A kids’ corner and playpen will keep the very young quietly occupied, while drawing tables, bean bags, a PC with Internet access and game consoles are available for the older children. For their entertainment, the lounge also has a children’s cinema with comfortable leather benches. To celebrate the opening of the new ”JetFriends“ children’s lounge, Lufthansa has organised a painting competition (My best travel experience) for children to draw and paint their “journey of a lifetime”. In the competition, children are invited to paint the most exciting and enjoyable moments in their previous travels. The closing date for entries is 17 August. The prizes are well worth winning, they include an upmarket luggage set, consisting of a suitcase and rucksack, or a Nintendo DS. Entry forms and colouring sheets can be picked up in the lounge or downloaded from lufthansa.com/malwettbewerb.
Summer special for frequent travellers
Frequent flyers can also make use of a very special offer at the start of the holiday season: Between 24 June and 31 August, they will have the chance of taking their family with them into Lufthansa Business Lounges for a fee of 40 euros (50 US dollars) and make their journey that much more pleasant and relaxed. The offer is valid for spouses or partners and children up the age of 18 in all Lufthansa Business Lounges in Germany and the USA.
More and more travellers think that researching and planning a European city break is half the fun and they're not interested in pre-arranged trips or escorted tours. Self-guided tours offer a lot of advantages but require some guidance and good resources.
With the recent wild fires, disrupting flights and increasing air pollution, environmental quality is a growing factor in attracting tourists.
