ANA's business class passengers are in for a treat with the airline set to open a new international lounge at Tokyo Narita Airport on March 29.
Located at 'Satellite 2' within Terminal 1, the lounge will be most convenient for travellers departing from gates 21-25, but the space remains accessible when departing from other gates too.
That includes passengers bound for Perth on ANA's NH881 flight, departing daily at 11:20am from Terminal 1.
Beyond Perth, "many of our passengers traveling through Asia pass through Narita Airport," explains ANA Executive Vice President Hideki Kunugi.
"Ensuring that these passengers can easily access one of ANA’s lounges no matter where they are located in the airport exemplifies ANA’s commitment to Japanese hospitality and passenger convenience."
As ANA's third lounge at Narita, designer Kengo Kuma is blending modern touches with the local tradition of a "Yamato-kabe" wood wall, which guides guests into the space.
Once inside, guests can enjoy Japense ramen dishes at the noodle bar, alongside a wider range of food and beverage options. Seating is split between working, dining and relaxing.
Along with business class passengers, Star Alliance Gold frequent flyers travelling with ANA or on another Star Alliance airline from Terminal 1 will also have access to this lounge.
Passengers booked with ANA from Tokyo to Sydney instead depart from Haneda Airport, where a different business class lounge awaits. Virgin Australia's upcoming Brisbane-Tokyo flights will also use Haneda, which is much closer to the city than Narita.
