A Lounge for Everyone at Wellington Airport

Media Release
Friday 11 December 2009

A Lounge for Everyone at Wellington Airport

A new customer lounge – the Wild at Heart Lounge - will open at Wellington Airport on 15 December and will be made available to visitors and airline customers alike.

Currently, access to business lounges is restricted by airline choice, loyalty ‘status’ and/or a requirement to join an annual programme. The Wild at Heart Lounge has no restrictions on entry and will operate on a pay-by-use basis.

“CEOs and CFOs of Wellington businesses and organisations have told me that they would like to see a lounge facility available for all business travel, supporting company policies of ‘best fare of the day’.

“We have listened and delivered,” said Steve Fitzgerald, CEO Wellington Airport.

The Wild at Heart Lounge offers unparalleled flexibility. As well as being available for use before a flight, it can also be used on arrival or as a place to meet guests and colleagues.

The Lounge will have everything you would expect in a comfortable, productive lounge, including refreshments, newspapers, magazines, Wi-Fi and office facilities, SKY TV and bathroom/shower facilities.

To ensure the service, food and beverages in the Wild at Heart Lounge are provided with the style customers expect from Wellington Airport, the Airport has partnered with Wellington’s iconic MOJO to operate the lounge.

The Lounge is located upstairs by the Conference Centre, Level 2 Main Terminal, in the area previously occupied by the Qantas domestic lounge.

Customers are invited to trial the Lounge from 15 December to March 2010 at an entry special of $19 per person. This is a $6 discount on the regular price of $25. Subscription options for regular users will be introduced in early 2010 and as well as an on-line booking facility.
