Qantas has today opened a brand new lounge at Heathrow. Located at London Heathrow Terminal 3, the spacious new Qantas London Lounge launches as the airline counts down to its direct 787 Dreamliner flights between Australia and London.
12 months in the making, the opening of the new lounge is part of a multi-million dollar investment into its existing London services before the landmark Perth-London route starts operating on 24th March 2018.
Split over two levels, the lounge features views of the airfield, will seat more than 230 customers, and follows the same concept as Qantas’ international lounges in Hong Kong, Singapore, Los Angeles and Brisbane, with the food and interior design taking inspiration from the local region.
Designed by Woods Bagot, the interiors reflect London at twilight with deep greens and rich blues throughout the furniture, while warm-coloured timbers, stone and brass represent the historic architecture of the city
A marble cocktail bar sits beneath a brass chandelier on the upper-level serving cocktails designed by the Qantas Rockpool Mixologists, as well as Australian and European wine and beer
A gin bar on the lower level offers the finest Australian and British gins, alongside an all-day barista service
With menus designed by Rockpool, customers can enjoy á la carte service in the dining room with a selection of plates of the day including quintessential British dishes such as ploughman’s platters, pot pies and scones with jam and cream; Australian favourites such as healthy brunch bowls with eggs, avocado and kale, and zucchini and halloumi fritters; and the signature salt and pepper squid with green chilli sauce from the Qantas First Lounges.
