Qantas Adelaide lounge redevelopments set to begin

Qantas passengers traveling through Adelaide Airport are poised to enjoy an enhanced airport experience with the announcement that the lounge precinct redevelopment is set to begin this month.

The redevelopment project will introduce a brand-new Domestic Business Lounge inspired by the natural beauty of Kangaroo Island’s Flinders Chase National Park. Additionally, the existing Qantas Club and Chairman’s Lounge will undergo comprehensive refurbishments.

The first phase of this project involves the fit-out of the Qantas Club, scheduled to open in mid-November.

The new Domestic Business Lounge is expected to welcome its first guests by mid-2025.

Although the lounge space footprint will remain unchanged, the redesign will optimise currently under-utilised areas, resulting in a more than 10% increase in total seating capacity.

The new lounge interiors will celebrate South Australia’s stunning landscapes, rich culture, and culinary delights.

The lounges will feature South Australian-sourced furniture, lighting, and natural materials, alongside fittings curated by the Jam Factory and artwork created by local Indigenous artists.

This redevelopment is part of Qantas’s broader $100 million investment aimed at upgrading and enhancing its global lounge network.

According to Phil Capps, Qantas Executive Manager for Product and Service, the lounge upgrades are designed to meet the needs of customers flying from Adelaide while showcasing South Australian architectural and interior design excellence.

“Our local design philosophy means the new Adelaide Lounge Precinct will celebrate the best of South Australia. From the furnishing and artworks through to the premium food and beverages, we want to give our customers a taste of South Australia every time they fly with us. Our customers can also expect to see more of the features they’ve told us they value the most,” said Capps.

“We’re installing extra seating throughout the precinct to provide more space to work, and around 80% of seats will have access to power stations and device ports so customers can easily charge up before their flight.”

During the construction phase, the existing Qantas Club will continue to operate for eligible customers from one hour prior to the first Qantas-operated service until the last departure.

Additionally, a ‘Grab and Go’ service with premium breakfast options and barista coffee will be available during busy morning peak travel times if the lounges reach capacity.
