Lufthansa to double its lounges in Munich


At the opening ceremony for the Satellitengebäude in April 2016, five new lounges with a total area of 4,000 square metres will be available for first class and business class guests as well as Lufthansa HON-circle members, passengers with Lufthansa Senator status and frequent travelers. In all, this amounts to a doubling of Lufthansa’s lounge capacity in Munich.

“The new Lufthansa lounges in the Satellitengebäude are a further quantum leap forward to more quality and a five-star service. The light atmosphere and direct views over the apron will capture our customers’ imagination”, stated Thomas Klühr, Lufthansa Passage board member for finance & hub Munich. All lounges will be located in the central area of the new building and will be quickly accessible and conveniently situated for customers.

On the top level, (an area of more than 1,000 square metres) the new first class lounge is currently being developed. Here, first class passengers and HON-circle members can relax in a luxurious atmosphere. The lounge will offer several bedrooms and working spaces, a bar area, luxury bathrooms and a separate lounge for cigar smokers. A gourmet restaurant will provide à la carte meals as well as a premium-quality buffet. Separate passport control within the lounge will cater for a convenient arrival or departure. If passengers leave from or arrive at an apron position a limousine service will bring them directly to an aircraft or the first class lounge.

For the Lufthansa Senator and business lounges on the Non-Schengen level along the panoramic windows of both lounges, a special feature is available: a bar with barkeeper will provide cold and warm drinks as well as specialty coffee and cocktails. For the Munich Lufthansa Senator lounges, the famous warme Leberkäs mit Brezn und Kartoffelsalat is a must, and slices of a warm meatloaf with lye pretzel and potato salad will be available at the buffet, as well as a changing menu with hot dishes or a comprehensive breakfast in the morning. Guests in the business lounges will enjoy their waiting time in a bistro area with comfy armchairs. Additionally, the Lufthansa Senator and business lounges, which will cover an area of more than 3,000 square metres, will offer separate working spaces, a TV area and comfortable shower rooms.
