(08 Feb 2021) Air New Zealand has reopened its regional lounge at Wellington Airport (WLG).
The lounge will be open on weekdays and will operate in addition to the domestic lounge which is open as per usual.
Alison Swarbrick, Air New Zealand Senior Manager Global Lounges and Valet, said, “It’s great to see Kiwis travel their own country and we’re pleased to be open again to provide our customers with a comfortable place to enjoy refreshments and relax ahead of their departure.
“Our refreshed summer menu has been very popular in our other ports and now Wellington regional customers will get the chance to try some of our new menu items like house-made immunity boost juices, vegetarian pita pockets and raw cacao and coconut bars.”
Wellington Airport Chief Executive Steve Sanderson said that now domestic passenger numbers are picking up again, it’s great to see things getting closer to normal in the terminal.
“Our regular travellers will arrive and depart from the gates they were used to pre-COVID,” Steve said. “They will also be able to enjoy more regular terminal entertainment and faster security screening following the roll out of new Smart Lanes by Aviation Security at the end of last year.”
