Frankfurt Airport has inaugurated its new lounge in Transit B.
The new 1,300 square meter lounge took two years to build and cost a sum in the lower eight-digit euro range.
The lounge looks well worth the time and money. It is more like a five-star hotel than an airport lounge.
Passengers can choose between privacy and company: besides eight differently sized and designed private suites with their own bathrooms and a direct view of the apron, jointly usable lounge areas are at their disposal. They include a cigar lounge, a gaming lounge equipped with consoles, a pinball machine and table football, and a spacious main lounge with a bar.
High-speed Wi-Fi and a conference room also allow passengers to work in a pleasant ambiance before taking off. A selection of international dishes and snacks can be ordered. Unusual requests can also be met, whether they are caviar, camel’s milk chocolate or homemade lentil soup.
There is a fleet of luxury vehicles for getting passengers to and from the airport and gates, even including a Bentley Mulsanne.
Anke Giesen, Fraport’s Executive Director of Operations:
“We have created an extraordinarily luxurious place of refuge away from the busy gates: an oasis of rest and relaxation for travelers with high expectations. It makes guests feel both right at home and thoroughly taken care of.”
The new second facility is Frankfurt Airport’s response to the burgeoning demand.
“It’s true that our VIP services only address a relatively small group of affluent clients with an especially great need for privacy. But this group is steadily growing, along with what its members expect from an airport. Thanks to the new lounge, we’re now excellently prepared to meet these expectations―and word is definitely going to get around fast.”
