BRUSSELS Airlines has opened a brand new Lounge at Brussels Airports today which creates an entirely new and fresh experience for the airline’s loyal travelers (Star Alliance Gold members included!).

Referred to as “The Loft”, the new lounge offers passengers 13,500 square feet of space and is broken up into 8 different hubs, each with a different theme or purpose.    “The Loft” is nearly 4 times the size of its predecessor which should alleviate overcrowding concerns.    The lounge provides travelers with access to private bathrooms complete with showers as well as what ‘SN’ refers to as ‘NapBoxes’ for passengers looking to close there eyes for a few hours in between flights.

The lounge is designed to host up to 300 guests at one time and provides a few amenities that are fairly unique.   One of the more attractive amenities is the ability for lounge guests to borrow one of the lounge’s Surface Pro 3 tablets during their visit.     The tablet comes with a “Lounge Assistant” app that allows users to check flight status and book the use of a shower or ‘napbox’.   The app also provides video-on-demand through YELO.     If technology is not your strong suit, Brussels has provided their lounge staff with specialized ‘Butler Training’ to further assist you during your stay.

The following photos should provide a good first look at the lounge and some of the amenities that you’ll find (all photos courtesy of BRUSSELS Airlines):
