Lufthansa unveils ‘panorama lounge’ at FRA

The new Panorama Lounge, which increases Terminal 1 lounge capacity by 40%, has a view of rolling aircraft.

Passengers with lounge access can now expect “an even more relaxed lounge stay” before their departure in the Terminal 1A Schengen area at Frankfurt Airport, Lufthansa says.

The German flag carrier has just opened its new Panorama Lounge as “a response to the high demand for the two existing business lounges in this area, caused by the increase in passenger numbers,” the airline maintains.

Leasing space recently became available opposite Gate A26 at the major hub, so an additional 1,100 square metres are now available for Lufthansa Business Lounge guests – boosting the number of seats available in this area by 40%.

The highlight of the Panorama Lounge is the “breath taking view” of the Frankfurt Airport apron, where rolling aircraft are almost within reach, Lufthansa says.

Different design
The lounge, which initially appears to differ from the usual Lufthansa design, has a spacious main area with numerous seating options as well as a food and beverage buffet.

Open on Mondays to Fridays from 06:00 to 21:00, it also offers several smaller rooms for working or relaxing, a smoking area, additional buffets and a relaxation room. There’s a “high quality sanitary area” too, which has four showers.

“I am delighted that by renting the Panorama Lounge we can once again offer our lounge guests the service they have come to expect from us,” said Dr Andreas Otto, Lufthansa Group’s product manager for premium airlines and chief commercial officer at Austrian Airlines.

“In addition, we have planned several further renovation and expansion measures in the lounge area at our Frankfurt hub, which will further improve the lounge experience for our guests.”
