British Airways has opened its new lounge in Cape Town International Airport, which is double the size of the previous Terraces lounge.
The design of the new lounge is similar to BA's Galleries lounges at Heathrow Terminal 5 - but aims to highlight the best of both British and South African style.
This comes on the back of the airline's announcement that it will increase its services from London to Cape Town by three flights a week from May 2014, offering 657 additional seats a week, expanding total capacity to over 12,000 seats next winter.
The new BA lounge, which is 680 square metres, is able to accommodate 148 customers and is zoned to enable them to work, relax or dine.
- Complimentary Wi-Fi
- An air printing’ facility which allows travellers to print from their own device, connecting from anywhere in the lounge via Wi-Fi
- Showers to enable passengers to freshen up prior to their flight
- Catering options developed with local menu providers
- A dedicated area showcasing the best of wines from the Cape region with wine-tastings will be offered on selected departure dates.
Access to the new lounge is limited to British Airways First and Business class (Club World) customers as well as British Airways Executive Gold and Silver members as well as oneworld frequent flyers with Emerald & Sapphire status.
