Swiss lounge redesign

A redesigned Lounge Centre A aimed mainly at short-haul travellers has been opened at Zurich Airport by Switzerland’s national airline Swiss. It includes both a Business and a Senator lounge with separate entrances and digital access control.

In addition to a traditional reception desk, each entrance has two automated entry gates permitting swift boarding-pass access. Inside, the new-look facilities adopt the same zonal concept used in Swiss’s existing Dock E lounges.

This enables guests to select the level of privacy to meet their specific needs, from lounge niches, a bar area with views of Zurich’s Airside Centre, workstations and individual offices to a relaxation room complete with inviting loungers.

Travellers wishing to freshen up before or after flights have access to showers accessible from either lounge, while food areas have been devised along market-hall lines, with each including both a large bistro section and a front cooking zone.

The centre is open from 05:30 to 22:30, with the Business Lounge available to all Business Class travellers on Swiss and the Lufthansa Group, Miles & More Frequent Travellers and Business Class travellers on other Star Alliance airlines.

The Senator Lounge is available exclusively to Miles & More Senators, Star Alliance Gold Members and First Class travellers on Star Alliance member airlines.
