Air New Zealand will open a new lounge tomorrow at Brisbane International Airport as part its $100 million lounge network development.

The new 771sqm lounge caters for nearly 200 passengers customers with 70 percent more seating than the previous lounge.

The airline said the new lounge was in a prime position - wrapping around the corner of the airport terminal, and features high ceilings, large windows and views back to Brisbane city and into the lower terminal.

Spaces in the new lounge include a café area with a self-service food buffet and beverage station, a children's play area and family space, quiet nooks, business table and bathroom facilities.

Air New Zealand general manager customer experience Carrie Hurihanganui said she was confident the passengers would enjoy everything about the space.

"From the tailored seating zones, relaxing colour palette and dedicated children's play spaces, to the enhanced food and beverage offering, the lounge provides a comfortable haven whether customers are travelling for work or leisure."

The lounge was designed by award winning US-based firm, Gensler, and it follows the completion of the Sydney International, Auckland International, Auckland regional and Invercargill lounges.

The new Air New Zealand Brisbane Lounge is located on the upper level of the airport next to gate 81.

Airlines in this region and around the world have been upgrading lounges as their financial fortunes have improved to appeal to corporate and premium leisure travelers.
