Air New Zealand’s new Auckland regional lounge is open for business

Air New Zealand’s new Regional Lounge at Auckland Airport will open to customers this weekend.

The new lounge which has been under construction since October last year will open on Saturday, catering for up to 265 customers – three times the seating of the previous regional lounge space.

It’s located on Level 1 of the Auckland Airport domestic terminal, above the airline’s old regional lounge and offers expansive views out over the runway.  A new valet service area has also been constructed as part of the project.  The integrated design features a new and expanded undercover drop-off zone directly below the lounge, providing valet customers with an easy transition from the drop off area to the lounge and to regional departure gates.

The new Auckland Regional Lounge is part of a $60 million investment in lounges throughout New Zealand over the next two years.  This includes a refurbishment of the airline’s domestic lounges at Auckland and Wellington airports and new regional lounges in Nelson and New Plymouth.
