SKY TEAM alliance has opened the first co-branded lounge at Heathrow Terminal Four.  The new lounge occupies two levels and is some 1,600 square metres, this will accommodate around 300 passengers.  The lounge was jointly designed by the alliance and associate members offering all that a passenger might require whilst waiting for their flight.  The first level was opened on 4 June 2009 with the second level planned opening in November 2009, the later opened area will have dedicated premium check-in for First, Business Class and SkyTeam Elite passengers as well as a common use self-service kiosks and bag drop off.  Currently, only four airlines operating from Terminal Four are able to use the first level of the new lounge but as more members of SkyTeam begin to operate from the terminal, their passengers will also be eligible to use the new lounge.  However they are still able to use the two SkyTeam lounges in Terminal Two until then. www.skyteam.com
