Last week, SWISS First Lounge A opened its doors at Zurich Airport.
The 650 sqm lounge includes a check-in counter, a dedicated security checkpoint, an à la carte restaurant and a barista bar. It is at this bar that guests can “sample various speciality coffees and choose from over 100 Swiss grappas and further fruit brandies”.
Other features at SWISS First Lounge A include lounge suites, a lounge club with leather sofas, a business zone, a meeting room, a relaxation room with two loungers, and a smokers’ lounge with an attached outdoor area.
The lounge is available to its first class passengers and HON Circle Members of Lufthansa Group, flying SWISS’ short-haul flights. It can be accessed via an escalator from the Terminal A departure concourse (open daily 5:30pm-10:30pm).
Those booked on SWISS’ long-haul flights will be driven in a limousine from Lounge A to the SWISS First Lounge in Terminal E, which is the departure point for long-haul flights.
The airline will also introduce a chauffeur service for its first class passengers arriving in Terminal E, in Terminal B “or at a remote aircraft stand”. The airline’s press release reads: “The new chauffeur service will collect the customer from the aircraft door and take them directly to the relevant passport or security control in Terminal A or B.” Launch dates for this service haven’t been announced yet.
