Oneworld alliance member Qatar Airways now boasts its own luxury business class and first class lounge at Paris’ Charles de Gaulle Airport, with seating for more than 200 guests.
Located in Terminal 1 and spanning over 1,000 square metres, it’s a significant upgrade from the Air France Salon Premiere lounge previously offered in the French capital: now with a far more modern look and feel, beginning in the dining area with both traditional tables and colourful booth seats…
… and observed also in the relaxation zone with a central water feature, surrounded by seating for solo flyers, duos and groups, plus a number of semi-private nooks off to the sides:
Elsewhere: two roof terraces from which passengers can spot the Eiffel Tower, shower facilities, both male and female prayer rooms, Mac computers and a brasserie and deli aside a fully-stocked bar and barista coffee station:
Naturally, wireless Internet access is available throughout, with the lounge now open to Qatar Airways’ business class and first class travellers departing from Paris.
Australian Business Traveller has contacted Qatar Airways to determine whether Oneworld Sapphire and Emerald frequent flyers – including Qantas Gold/Platinum and Qatar Airways Privilege Club Gold/Platinum – can also access this lounge when booked in economy, and will provide an update once confirmed.
