SWISS’ New First Class Lounge Opens Monday!

SWISS’ New First Class Lounge Opens Monday!

Swiss has announced the long-awaited opening of their new First Class Lounge at Zurich Airport.   The new lounge is located in Terminal A and promises to deliver as great an experience as their fantastic First Class Lounge in Terminal E.

The lounge officially opens on Monday, and will boast 7,000 square feet of space for First Class and HON Circle passengers.

The lounge will feature it’s own Security Checkpoint and will allow for First Class passengers arriving in Zurich to be driven directly to the lounge vs. having to navigate the terminal on foot.   Passengers can also be driven to their long haul flights that usually depart from Terminal E.   Last year I was driven from Terminal E to my flight to JNB leaving from B, and it was much, much nicer than having to take the tram from E to B.

The lounge will also feature other wonderful amenities such as:

  • Barista Station
  • A La Carte Dining Room as well as a visible cooking station where you can see your food being prepared.
  • Winter Coat Storage for passengers departing ZRH for warmer destinations (LX will hang on to your coat until you return).
  • Relaxation Room w/ loungers.
  • Smoker’s Lounge with its own dedicated Whiskey Bar
  • Business Zone
  • Conference Room
  • Shower Rooms

For those of you that have visited the First Class Lounge in ‘E’, this one will look very familiar.   According to SWISS, then new lounge in ‘A’ was heavily inspired by the Terminal E version.

Enter Lufthansa First Class Terminal’s Weekly Contest To Win A Duck!

For those of you who do not follow the First Class Terminal on their Twitter channel, you’re missing an opportunity to win a duck with their weekly contest.

The contest is quite simple……Lufthansa FCT asks a question related to the Terminal and the best answer wins.    The questions are quite unique.    They typically have something to do with the consumption of ingredients or other little known factoids.  For example, this week’s question asks ‘How Many Kilometers Of Spaghetti were served at the Terminal last year?’.    The answer that comes closest wins a duck that will be delivered to your home.

I’ll post something each week to remind you to enter.   You can also follow Lufthansa First Class Terminal on Twitter to stay informed with what is happening inside this wonderful building!
