Virgin Australia opens the newest lounge in its domestic network, with Cairns travellers set to enjoy the creature comforts needed to work, socialise or just chill before their flight.
Located on the upper level of the Cairns domestic airport, the 710 square metre lounge seats 180 guests with a Luke Mangan designed buffet and an all-day barista service.
There's a meeting room for up to eight people and of course free wifi Internet flows throughout the lounge.
The space has been designed to encapsulate Virgin Australia’s contemporary look and feel, the airline says, and offers sweeping views of the tarmac and the Cairns hinterland.
Taking inspiration from the tropical environment, the lounge features timber privacy screenings, floor to ceiling glass windows to maximise sunlight and vibrant colour accents through the soft furnishings.
"Cairns was one of the first destinations we started flying to and it remains a very strong focus for us today" said David Anderson, Virgin Australia's General Manager of Brand Strategy.
"We have transformed the travel experience to Cairns with the introduction of Business Class on all jet flights, bringing competition for the first time in over a decade. We remain committed to bringing choice to travellers throughout Queensland and we look forward to launching our new service between Cairns and Weipa next year, bringing much needed competition to a currently regulated route."
