Brussels Airlines has completed the renovation of its Sunrise Lounge, available to business class passengers travelling to Sub-Saharan Africa.
The lounge is located in Brussels airport’s T-zone, and has been redesigned to increase capacity by 25 per cent.
New facilities include five “nap boxes” for guests looking to get some sleep before their flight, as well as renovated shower suites.
There is now a larger range of buffet hot meals available, and new F&B features include Grohe Blue water fountains to reduce the use of plastic bottles, and self-service beer tap.
Design elements include Ethnicraft natural oak wood furniture, and “a wallpaper design inspired by one of the many impressive landscapes on the African continent”.
The refurbishment follows work carried out on the airport’s T-zone, with added seating capacity, a new Smurf-themed wall game for kids, and a pharmacy vending machine offering passengers “quick access to a number of basic medical supplies”.
Brussels Airlines has long focused on its African network, and currently flies to 17 destinations in Sub-Saharan Africa.
Commenting on the news Dorothea von Boxberg, CEO, Brussels Airlines, said:
“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.
“Focusing on what really matters to our guests, we are proud of our new Sunrise Lounge. Moreover, this complete make-over highlights our strong and long-standing connection with the African continent.”
