British Airways has now released the first pictures of their new lounge at Geneva Airport. 

The lounge has undergone significant refurbishment and follows a new design concept for the airline, which debuted in 2018.

The lounge has been carefully curated to give guests a warm welcome and offer a place to relax or work prior to their travels. The space, which has been extended to 327 square metres, is carefully laid out to offer designated areas that are designed to meet different customer needs, the airline states in a pressrelease.

A lively lobby bar is placed in the centre of the space, ideal for socialising and maximising down time. A tempting display of spirits, beers and soft drinks are available together with a selection of fine wines. Prosecco is available throughout the lounge for guests to help themselves to.

A peaceful, separate seating area with a mix of elegant armchairs, banquette seating and power outlets are available for those who wish to work or recharge ahead of their journey.

A brand-new craft beer room has been created, allowing guests to discover new tipples and to make the most of the draft beer taps featuring BrewDog Punk IPA and Indie Pale Ale.

New catering offers an enhanced dining menu of grilled paninis, continental cheeses, fresh fruit, soups and warming main dishes. A selection of sweets, cakes and biscuits are available throughout the day to accompany a coffee from one of the two newly installed barista units.

Zoned areas in the lounge will enable guests to choose what area they would like to relax in depending on their mood, with a music system and bespoke playlist. Lighting has been carefully planned by zone and dimmable to reflect the time of day.

Carolina Martinoli, British Airways’ Director of Brand and Customer Experience, said: “We know the difference our lounges make to our customers and we’re delighted to present the next step in our significant customer investment with the refurbished Geneva lounge.
