Lufthansa to upgrade premium lounges in Boston, Dubai

Lufthansa to upgrade premium lounges in Boston, Dubai

Travelers flying first or business class on German national carrier Lufthansa will soon be able to spend the time before their flight in luxury, as the airline recently announced plans to upgrade its premium lounges at two different airports around the world, reports SkyClub News.

The first lounge to be renovated will be at Logan International Airport in Boston. Lufthansa, which operates flights from Boston to Frankfurt and Munich, currently has a combined Senator and Business Lounge at the Massachusetts air hub. Once the upgrades are complete, the current lounge will be converted into a facility for first class passengers only, while business class travelers will be able to use a separate lounge nearby.

Overall, the Boston lounge is expected to double in size once Lufthansa has completed its renovations. Between the Senator and Business Lounges, Lufthansa's Boston lounges will have seating for up to 130 people. In addition, the upgrades will add a larger and more modern bistro, allowing guests at the facility to enjoy better food.

The improvements to Lufthansa's Boston lounges, which began earlier this month, will be complete in August or September of this year. Until the refurbishment has concluded, those who would have otherwise had access to the facility - including HON Circle members, first and business class passengers, Lufthansa Senators and Star Gold customers - can enter the Air France lounge in Terminal E across from gate 3B.

Meanwhile, the German carrier will also be improving its lounge at Dubai International Airport in the United Arab Emirates. Just as it does in Boston, the airline presently has a joint Senator and Business Lounge in the Middle Eastern destination, which it serves with flights from Frankfurt and Munich. When the renovations are complete, the upgraded lounge will be solely for Lufthansa Senators. With space for 68 passengers, the facility will feature more seating, a more relaxing atmosphere and improved food and beverage options.

While Lufthansa is carrying out its upgrades to its Dubai facility, all passengers who want to use the lounge can access the Marhaba Lounge, an independent facility located in the same terminal across the hall from gates 123 and 125. Once all improvements have concluded, Lufthansa's business class passengers will continue to use the Marhaba Lounge.
