First Lufthansa business lounge with beer garden
Friday 12, March 2010
Lufthansa has a Bavarian touch in store for its guests in Munich from 23 March 2010. While waiting for their flight, status customers and Business-Class passengers can for the first time spend the time in a beer garden admiring a panoramic background provided by the Bavarian Alps.
In cooperation with Munich’s Franziskaner brewery, Lufthansa is giving passengers a chance to relax at traditional beer tables, enjoying draught beer tapped from the barrel with Bavarian pretzels. The beer garden is integrated in the refurbished Business Lounge in the Schengen departures area (Gate Area G) of Terminal 2. On total floor space of 1,100 square metres, the lounge is equipped with more than 300 seats and has many new opportunities for passengers to catch up with work or simply unwind and relax. ”Lufthansa is continuing to invest in customer comfort despite the present, difficult economic situation,“ says Thomas Klühr, Group Representative and Head of Hub Management Munich. “The newly refurbished Business Lounge measures up to the high quality that our passengers have come to expect from our product.“
Besides a re-designed bistro area, the Business Lounge offers six new satellite bars and a large seater bench accommodating up to 28 passengers. Leather-upholstered armchairs invite passengers to sink into for a while, and enjoy peace and quiet in the comfort zone. The more industrious have 18 workstations, some equipped with integrated computers, to choose from. From any seat in the lounge, passengers can surf the net with their laptop or check their emails. Two large screens in a separate TV area provide entertainment in a choice of television programmes. Also available are two shower rooms, complete with air dryer, towels and a range of toiletries.
Altogether, Lufthansa offers passengers seven lounges on a total area of around 4,500 square metres in Terminal 2. The newly refurbished Business Lounge is sited opposite Gate Area G 28.
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.
