IN BRIEF | Air New Zealand has opened its new regional lounge at Auckland Domestic Airport, the first of several new and made-over lounges on the airline's to-do list.
Located at the regional end of the terminal building, close to the airline’s Valet Parking drop-off point, it's designed for travellers on AirNZ's regional services from Auckland.
However, those passengers can still use the airline’s existing domestic lounge at Auckland Airport if they prefer.
One cool touch, apart from the contemporary design, is that your barista-made coffee can be ordered through Air New Zealand’s tablet or smartphone app.
Air New Zealand's flagship international lounges are also undergoing a slick make-over which the airline says will echo its stylish LAX lounge, with the Sydney lounge due for completion in the second quarter of 2015 and Auckland’s International Lounge to follow by mid-2015.
