Virgin Australia is putting the finishing touches on its two-level domestic lounge at Sydney Airport’s T2 terminal, which will almost double the size of the former single-storey facility.
A second dedicated security lane will be added to the kerbside Premium Entry early next month to speed the check-in process for business class travellers and Velocity Platinum and Gold frequent flyers.
This has long been among of the best traits of Virgin's Sydney lounge, letting passengers bypass the queues on the terminal floor and zip straight from the kerb to the lounge.
But as regular VA flyers will attest, it's become increasingly busy over the past few years as Virgin's slice of the domestic business travel market has grown, so a second security lane will be welcome.
The Sydney lounge revamp has also added a much-needed second barista station on the ground level, in addition to the original coffee station at the bar plus the newer one upstairs.
Up next for Virgin Australia’s growing lounge network will be a new regional lounge for Cairns, which is expected to open in October.
If you’ve recently flown with Virgin Australia into or out of Sydney, what are your thoughts on the enlarged lounge?
