QantasLink opens lounge at Brisbane's domestic terminal

Australia’s largest regional airline QantasLink has officially opened its new state-of-the-art gate lounge facility at Brisbane Airport’s domestic terminal today (3 July).

The lounge will provide QantasLink customers with two additional boarding gates, a centrally located customer services desk, seating for 150 people and technology designed to assist customers travelling with specific needs.

The lounge will also support the significant growth the airline has experienced over recent years, according to QantasLink executive manager John Gissing. “Over AU$4 million (32.6 million) has been spent to deliver this state of the art facility which will provide customers with a premium QantasLink experience from the ground up,” he added.

Situated in close proximity to Qantas’ premium Business and Qantas Club lounges as well as the terminals cafes and retailers, the lounge features Qantas’ contemporary interior styling with an abundance of natural light and relaxed ambience, and will also be supported by a new QantasLink ground team.

The Minister for Transport and Main Roads Scott Emerson said since the commencement of construction in December 2011, the new QantasLink gate lounge had employed 250 Queenslanders. “It is great to see one of Australia’s most iconic brands investing in our state’s future through providing employment opportunities as well as a premium product at our major transport and tourism gateway Brisbane Domestic Airport,” Emerson said. “Tourism is a major focus for the Newman Government in growing Queensland into a four-pillar economy and QantasLink has been a key contributor in promoting and supporting regional Queensland.”

The airline has also been named Regional Airline of the Year 2012 and launched a new element to its aircraft livery today to celebrate.The new award livery will be introduced across QantasLink’s fleet and will remain for the next six months.

“QantasLink is proud to be Air Transport World’s Regional Airline of the Year 2012. This award recognised our team of services professionals who are dedicated to connecting regional Australians to our nation’s capital cities and beyond,” said Gissing.
