Qatar Airways to open Heathrow lounge

Article content

26 January 2012

Qatar Airway's will open its first dedicated airport lounge outside its Doha hub for First and Business Class passengers at London Heathrow's Terminal 4.

Qatar currently operates the award-winning Premium Terminal at Doha International Airport for exclusive use by passengers travelling in First or Business Class.

The opening coincides with the launch of new routes, as well as additional capacity on the London Heathrow - Doha route, increasing from four to five flights a day from 25 March.

The lounge includes a theatre-style brasserie kitchen and delicatessen staffed by recruits from five-star hotels and restaurants, as well as private shower facilities, with heated floors and mirrors, hotel-style towels and luxury brand toiletries and amenities, and

Qatar Airways Chief Executive Officer Akbar Al Baker said that the new lounge reflected the importance of extending the airline's award-winning service beyond the signature Premium Terminal in Doha.

"London has long been one of our best-performing routes, so Heathrow was an obvious choice for our first Premium Lounge outside Doha," he said.

"With the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games taking place this summer, the international spotlight will be on the British capital and we look forward to the increase in capacity and welcoming more premium travellers on our high demand services to London.

"The lounge is the latest development in our expanding global network and will enable both loyal customers and those travelling with us for the first time, to take full advantage of the high levels of service we provide."
