With up to six flights a day, London is one of Qatar Airways’ most popular destinations, and the Gulf carrier is hoping to capitalize on its popularity by opening two new lounges, one of which will be exclusively for frequent fliers.
The T4 Premium Lounge, which remains exclusive to first and business class passengers, has been renovated, and the T4 Frequent Flyer Lounge has also been updated to reflect the modern aesthetic debuted at Qatar’s T1 Premium Lounge in Singapore.
Singapore was the first stop for Qatar Airways’ reimagined first-class lounge.The Frequent Flyer Lounge has chic decor and a view of the tarmac, and it’s open to passengers who have purchased economy class tickets if they’re qualified.
And those “eligible travelers” include members of the Oneworld Emerald and Sapphire tiers, as well as Platinum and Gold members of the Qatar Airways Privilege Club, Platinum and Gold members of Qantas and Virgin Australia (through their shared Oneworld membership, and Platinum and Gold members of Virgin Australia thanks to Qatar Airways’ strategic partnership with Virgin Australia).
(As of October 2020, Malaysia Airlines will no longer transport passengers who qualify for access to the Plaza Premium Lounge at Terminal 4 in London)
Three other Qatar Airways frequent flyer lounges are located in the airline’s Doha hub, however this is the first one to open outside of Doha.
Doha is home to one of three VIP passenger lounges offered by Qatar Airways.
The upper Premium Lounge is undoubtedly one of Heathrow’s classiest lounges due to its à la carte dining room and informal eating Global Deli buffet, martini bar, and dedicated family space.
The Premium Check-in Area at T4 is now fully enclosed, and is reserved “exclusively for first and business class customers.”
The airline advertises that their check-in lobby is “a paradise of tranquility where guests are encouraged to lounge in a refuge of tranquility with refreshing refreshments while check-in procedures are performed.”
Customers may arrive at our lounge with plenty of time to spare before their flight with their boarding pass and fast track invitation in hand.
