Lufthansa has reopened its first class lounge in Frankfurt airport’s Terminal 1.
The carrier said that “Declining infection rates and the easing of travel restrictions are making more people want to fly again”, adding that the decision had been taken “in response to rising booking figures”.
The lounge is now open daily from 0600 to 2130, but note that at present the airline is promoting the space simply as “an exclusive and comfortable place to relax while travellers are waiting for their departure”, as restrictions mean that no food or beverages may be consumed in the lounge.
Lufthansa is offering a takeaway menu with “a good selection of food and beverages” for guests to consume outside the facility, and said that “The popular a la carte service will also be resumed as soon as official regulations allow us to do so”.
Selected Lufthansa lounges have reopened in Germany and abroad (including New York), and the carrier said that additional lounges will gradually reopen “in the upcoming weeks”.
Lufthansa’s First Class Terminal and limousine service at Frankfurt airport is also set to resume “soon”.
This week Frankfurt airport reopened its Terminal 2, after over a year of closure which has allowed the airport to carry out “extensive upgrades, repairs, and modernisation projects”, including the installation of over 3,000 new glass panes in the five skylights of the terminal roof.
