Qatar Airways first class lounges: A luxurious setting at the heart of its hubs
Waiting for your plane in a noisy and uncomfortable departure lounge often takes a lot of patience. Imagine being able to transform this expectation into a special moment. It is much better to relax in the spa, sip a cocktail or sleep in a real bed, … than to sit on an uncomfortable seat in a noisy airport. Before taking the plane or during a long stopover, we would love to lie down in a real bed, enjoy the outdoors on the terrace or relax in the spa.
Qatar Airways has a very exclusive operating mode for its airport lounges. On some platforms, only First passengers can access these luxurious spaces. These lounges are dedicated to its First Class passengers and to certain members of its Privilege Club loyalty program.
Qatar Airways has lounges at international airports on six continents. It makes for a more rewarding experience at the airport. At several airports, the Qatari airline’s First lounges provide an oasis of tranquility with the facilities you need to relax, recharge and work. Travelers can indulge in a spa treatment or cool off in private showers.
Qatar Airways airport lounges or lounges, reserved for first class passengers, compete in comfort and services to make this forced stopover a moment of relaxation and pleasure.
Setting foot in one of its luxurious lounges is not for everyone. Most of the time, you will need to purchase a First Class ticket, or hold some Gold and Platinum loyalty card for Privilege Club reward program members or, Emerald and Sapphire for Oneworld airlines. Some lounges also offer admission prices to all travelers.
