There are 24 different styles of seating in the lounge. A new food theatre with cuisine cooked to order at meal times by the lounge’s resident chef as well as buffet offering are available. Personally, we always enjoy getting pampered with a cooked to order restaurant-service type of meals at Airport lounges. Lounges we have enjoyed such service include the Cathay Pacific lounges in Hong Kong and Qantas Lounge in Singapore and Sydney.

Kids get a separate area modelled on a Kiwi tree house with books, interactive toys and the latest children’s programmes to keep little ones entertained. Good on you Air New Zealand for not forgetting the little ones. Many airlines forget kids travel quite a bit these days.

The lounge was designed by Gensler architectural firm which also designed the new Sydney International Lounge and the Star Alliance International lounge in Los Angeles Airport.

The opening of this lounge is another milestone in a four year NZ$100 million programme to redevelop Air New Zealand’s lounge network and follows the completion of the new Sydney International Lounge and the Auckland Regional Lounge with more planned over the next few years.
