Qantas, the award-winning airline, is set to begin renovations for its business class lounge located in Melbourne Airport, with a completion date set for the end of 2018 (possibly early 2019).
The new lounge, designed by Woods Bagot, promises about 40 percent more space that will seat 350 passengers. It will also feature a bonus section for all to enjoy —a noodle bar that expresses the local Asian culture in Australia.
But don’t worry, that’s not all to enjoy in this modern lounge. From fine dining and large drink selections to more workspace and area to move around in, the new Qantas lounge in Melbourne Airport will become a new hot spot for all premium travelers.

Aside from the noodle bar, which I’m sure many of you can’t wait to try, the space will offer a sufficient buffet serving fresh dishes directly from the kitchen, including a “cake display”. There are also two “Quench” hydration stations on both sides of the lounge, offering passengers some of the finest non-alcoholic beverages, especially for those who are looking for another option besides beer, wine, champagne or liquor.
The current lounge is smaller, which some have complained about filling up too quickly, so the hopes are that this will provide ample room for all the traffic coming in and out.
The lounge will be located where the current Qantas Club space is, in the airline’s domestic terminal—good news for business class passengers who love views of the tarmac and large amounts of light. Lounge access will be available to those holding a business class ticket, a Oneworld Emerald card, or a Platinum frequent flyer status.
