Expanded Frankfurt Airport VIP Lounge open to all passengers
The relocated VIP Lounge includes a fitness zone and various areas where travellers can relax before or after their flight.
Frankfurt Airport’s VIP Lounge – which travellers can pay to access regardless of airline or class of travel – has been relocated and extended.
The VIP lounge has been temporarily moved to Pier A – which used to be home to Lufthansa’s Business and Senator lounges – while a three-year extensive renovation project is undertaken on the existing VIP Service facilities.
Covering almost 1,200sqm, the lounge includes a new fitness area where travellers can train before or after their flight. Fraport, the airport’s operator, worked with Frankfurt-based studio MM Design on the interior design of the lounge, which is based on a five-star hotel, and it includes various areas for travellers to relax, as well as a shower and changing area.
For travellers who pay for the €298 VIP Package, the check-in procedure is taken care of by a member of staff, while they can also make use of a limousine transfer directly to their plane.
Bärbel Storch, Head of Fraport’s VIP Service, said: “After the Lufthansa lounges were moved to the new Pier A-Plus, we were presented with an ideal alternative to the existing VIP Lounge. We have equipped the new lounge to fully meet our standards.”
FTE Europe 2016 will take place at RAI Amsterdam from 25-26 April 2016.
