As Canberra Airport looks to add more international flights onto its departure board, the airport's managing body is looking to open a premium lounge for business class passengers and top-tier frequent flyers.
But unlike most Australian airports, the lounge wouldn't belong to any one airline.
Instead, Canberra Airport is believed to be considering its own independently-run premium lounge, either managed by the airport or under contract to a third-party lounge operator.
It also makes allowances for the fact that the lounge would be needed only for a handful hours each day, and that's assuming airlines run a daily flight schedule.
The lounge could also offer pay-in access for economy class travellers who don’t have a suitably shiny frequent flyer card with the respective airline.
