Six of Qantas’ international, domestic, and regional lounges will be upgraded as part of the airline’s new multimillion-dollar renovation plan. This comes in light of their record US$1.17 billion profit for the 2018 financial year.

Under this initiative, the flag carrier of Australia will revamp the lounges at Auckland, Brisbane, Hobart, Sydney, Tamworth, and Tokyo. These changes are in addition to the carrier’s existing lounge upgrade program, which includes ongoing upgrades at the Melbourne Qantas Club and Domestic Business Lounge, as well as the Sydney International Business Lounge.

Here’s what travelers can expect from each of these lounges:

Sydney International First, the airline’s flagship lounge at Sydney Airport, will increase in size by about 15 percent alone, while the First and Business Lounges in Auckland will be combined to form a single lounge modeled after the airline’s London and Hong Kong international lounges but with regional New Zealand-inspired touches.

Meanwhile, the International Business Lounge at Tokyo Narita airport will get a new design and see its dining options upgraded.

Brisbane International Lounge is being expanded to fit 100 more guests, with work expected to be completed early next year. Hobart’s The Qantas Club and Tamworth’s Qantas Regional Lounge will both get a new design inclusive of more seating and greater space.

Qantas group CEO Alan Joyce said: “We know the lounge experience is a key part of people’s journey and it’s also how we reward our most frequent flyers.”
