Brussels Airlines’ long-haul business class passengers travelling to Sub-Saharan Africa can now enjoy a fully renovated Sunrise Lounge in the T-zone of Brussels Airport. It features more seating, more sleeping comfort and a larger variety of quality food and drinks.
Upon entrance, the new layout draws visitors immediately to the bright main area with panoramic views on the airfield. A range of product features have been introduced to improve the comfort of the new Sunrise Lounge:
- A large buffet offers a high-quality food range, including a bigger variety of hot meals
- The new Grohe Blue water fountains and a Coca-Cola soft drink dispenser further reduce the use of plastic bottles and cans, while a beer tap of the airline’s partner AB InBev gives guests the opportunity to tap their own perfect Belgian beer
- Guests arriving from a connecting flight have the opportunity to get some sleep in one of the five ‘nap boxes’ before continuing their journey
- Thanks to the Grohe design showers and restrooms, the Sunrise Lounge now offers state-of-the-art facilities to refresh in one of the shower suites
- The reorganised floor space increases seating capacity by 25%
“We are delighted to offer our passengers travelling to Africa a very premium and homey lounge that caters to the needs of long-haul travellers such as rest and relax, good food and the possibility to work,” said Dorothea von Boxberg, CEO, Brussels Airlines. “Focusing on what really matters to our guests, we are proud of our new Sunrise Lounge. Moreover, this complete makeover highlights our strong and longstanding connection with the African continent.”
As an ambassador of Belgium, the Belgian home carrier takes pride in working with local brands. In the Sunrise Lounge brands such as Ethnicraft, providing the natural oak wood furniture, and Serax, for the tableware and decorative accessories, contribute to the relaxing and cosy atmosphere of the lounge.
