LHR T2 Star Alliance lounge to be Lufthansa-branded

20 Dec 2013 by GrahamSmith

Lufthansa will open its own lounge at London Heathrow's new Terminal 2 next October.

The German airline told Business Traveller that its 1,600 sqm facility will be separated into Business and Senator lounges, collectively seating 350 — 120 for Senators/First Class passengers and 230 seats for those travelling in Business Class.

The lounge will also be open to Star Alliance business and first class passengers and will be the largest Lufthansa lounge facility outside Germany.

It will be similar in style to Lufthansa's most recent lounge at New York Newark airport.

Facilities will include comfort zones, working units, bistro zones, warm and cold meals, a drinks counter and sanitary facilities. The lounge will have an apron view, parquet floor, lobby, hospitality desk.

As previously reported, both United and Air Canada will have their own lounges at T2 (see news, November 6). There will be no separate Star Alliance lounge such as that existing at T1 presently.

Terminal 2 will be officially named in honour of Queen Elizabeth II when it opens next year (see online news, June 17).

The £2.5 billion facility, which is scheduled to open its doors on June 4, will be called Terminal 2: The Queen's Terminal.

The monarch opened the original Terminal 2 in 1955, almost 60 years ago and two years after her coronation.

Earlier this month, Lufthansa told Business Traveller more details of its forthcoming premium economy product (see news, December 11).
