The new lounges, which will mainly host short-haul travellers, provide a new Business and Senator Lounge and boast a modern concept with a range of privacy options, a marketplace culinary area, elegant Swiss-made furniture and clear Swiss design lines.
In addition to the traditional reception desk, each of the separate entrances to the new Business and Senator Lounges will feature two automated entry gates permitting swift boarding-pass access to the corresponding lounge.
Inside, the design and interior of both also follow the example of the existing Dock E complex: with their bright oiled-Swiss-oak parquet floors and their elegant furniture from top Swiss designers such as Vitra and deSede, the lounges offer both a consistent Swiss-style appearance and a living-room ambience in which every Swiss premium traveller should feel genuinely at home.
Furthermore, both areas offer the ability for guests to select a level of privacy to meet their specific needs, a bar area with views of the Airside Centre, workstations, individual offices and a relaxation room.
For travellers wishing to freshen up before (or after) their flight, the new accommodations offer five showers that are accessible from either lounge.
The lounges’ food areas have been devised along the concept of a marketplace and each includes a large bistro section and a front cooking zone.
Beginning in late July, visitors to Lounge Centre A will also be offered a mini version of the popular Swiss chocolates, which have thus far only been served aboard Swiss flights.
The smaller version will only be available in these lounge facilities.
