It’s always comforting to know when travelling through an international airport, that there’s a quiet, comfortable place in which to retreat, a place far removed from the noise and the crowds of a busy departures terminal.

That place of course is the airline lounge, a domain that up until now, belonged only to the Business and First Class passenger, or those in the top tier ranks of the frequent flyer world.

Well, thanks to the new Plaza Premium lounge at Brisbane International Airport, there’s now a lounge to rival even the best airline offerings – an airport refuge that maintains an air of exclusivity, yet which opens its doors to all.

Let’s look at what makes the new Plaza Premium lounge in Brisbane so special.

1. Ease of entry

Gone are the days when lounges were limited to the select few. At Plaza Premium, simply walk up to the reception desk and pay an entry fee. It’s as simple as that.

With your entry fee paid, you’ll have access to the stylish and relaxing lounge for up to 5 hours. And as a promotional offer, Plaza Premium even offers a 15 percent discount off the standard AUD$66 price when prepaying the entry fee on their website. The offer is valid until the end of June 2016.

2. Full range of amenities

Time flies in a Plaza Premium lounge. Upon entry, you can start enjoying all the complimentary features the lounge has to offer. Tuck in to the smorgasbord of delicious foods, enjoy a beer, wine, coffee or other beverage, on the house.

Get caught up on news, sport, business and more with a selection of international newspapers and magazines or enjoy the use of free Wi-Fi on your personal mobile device. Care to freshen up before a long flight? Plaza Premium even offers shower facilities.

3. Comfort and privacy

One of the things that makes a lounge so special is its peaceful, quiet ambiance. Kick back and relax in your comfy armchair. If you have work to do, retreat to a work station with laptop and smartphone recharge capabilities.

Plaza Premium lounge is designed to offer both privacy, as well as an atmosphere conducive to sociability.

4. Global locations

It’s easy to get used to the many complimentary offerings at the Brisbane lounge. But what about those times when you’re away from Brisbane? Fear not, as Plaza Premium has more than 140 lounges around the world.

From Abu Dhabi and Muscat in the Middle East to and Vancouver and Toronto in Canada and the dozens of locations around Asia, chances are you’ll find a Plaza Premium lounge to greet you.

5. Upcoming spa facilities

While not open yet, Brisbane lounge guests will soon have access to the menu of services provided at the upcoming spa. Located adjacent to Plaza Premium lounge, the wellness spa will feature massages, beauty treatments and a range of quality beauty products. The Brisbane spa is expected to open by the end of September 2016.

As you can see, the Plaza Premium lounge at Brisbane International is the perfect place to relax and unwind before a long flight. If you’re originating in Brisbane, simply check-in for your flight.

Once you’ve passed through security and Immigration, look for the escalator leading up to Level 4 from the gate and departures level. Plaza Premium lounge is straight ahead, at the top of the escalator.

Pay the AUD$66 entry fee, and you are on your way.
