The five-star airline, All Nippon Airways (ANA), has announced its third lounge opening in Narita Airport on the 29th of March, ahead of the Summer Olympics. Dedicated to passengers departing from Terminal 1, the new lounge has been designed by Kengo Kuma, the same Japanese architect that also created the look and feel of the airline’s latest first class and business class seats.
The focus of this new lounge is to be welcoming to all who enter, featuring wood walls, areas that are open, and furniture and decor that’s minimalistic yet clean and light. From the lounge to the seat, passengers will be able to feel a sense of continuity thanks to their coherent design from the lounge on the ground to the seats in the airplane. Like many of the airline’s other lounges, the new ANA Narita Lounge will also offer guests a noodle bar and a buffet serving delectable and fresh Japanese cuisine. Regardless of how a traveler will spend their time before departure, there will be plenty of space to work, relax and enjoy a good meal.
The Senior Vice President of All Nippon Airways, Hideki Kunugi, recently stated, “Many of our passengers traveling through Asia pass through Narita Airport. 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”. Stay tuned as additional features regarding the new ANA Narita Lounge will be revealed in the coming months.
