Auckland International Airport opens $4 million lounge

The new Strata Club lounge for international travellers has opened at Auckland’s international airport. The major $4 million upgrade replaces the old Emperor Lounge.

Strata Club was introduced earlier this year, but offered digital rewards and perks only, including more Wi-Fi and air point dollars.

The expansion comes alongside the completion of stage one for The Loop Duty Free retail space.

Richard Barker, Auckland Airport’s general manager retail and commercial, says the lounge is a big part of the international departure area and adds to the whole experience.

“We have already opened the first stages of our new and expanded security screening and processing area for all passengers, as well as part of the new stores for our two duty free operators. The rest of the international departure area upgrade – including a reconfigured landside farewell portal, a new retail hub and a new passenger lounge.”

The new Strata Lounge was designed by Ignite architects and constructed and fitted-out by Alaska and boasts and impressive curation of new facilities available to customers.

“Our new Strata Lounge means that no matter which international airline or class you are flying, before boarding your flight you can enjoy a modern lounge – with a fresh range of international food, beverages, work stations, shower facilities and a separate children’s space for families to use. In the future the lounge will also have sleeping pods and a beauty spa.”

International passengers can purchase entry into the Auckland Airport owned and operated Strata Lounge for $49 online or $55 on the door.
