Swissport says it is continuing to expand its lounge business in the Asia-Pacific region. After introducing its Aspire Airport Lounges brand in Australia with the construction of two new lounges at Perth Airport (PER), the operator has acquired the No1 Lounges’ Australian business, which includes premium lounges at Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane airports. With the completion of the two lounges in Perth (the Terminal 2 lounge will launch in July and the Terminal 1 lounge is due to open later this year ), Swissport notes that the growing Aspire Airport Lounges network will soon include facilities at the country’s four largest airports.
“We are delighted to bring these premium lounges into our network to bolster our regional expansion and meet the needs of our airline partners in the region,” says Brad Moore, MD of Swissport’s Australasia region. “Our international lounge network is award winning, and we are constantly growing and improving our local offering to be ready when post-pandemic travel picks up and international borders reopen.”
In 2018, No1 Lounges in Sydney and Melbourne opened its ‘The House’ brand, offering an option of a white linen a la carte restaurant and a fully tended bar. The more relaxed ‘My Lounge’ brand was launched at Brisbane Airport in September 2019, with food and beverages available around the clock.
