Lufthansa opens new Tower Lounge at Frankfurt with great views for airplane buffs

Lufthansa is opening its Tower Lounge for First and Business Class passengers as well as customers with Hon Circle, Senator or frequent traveller status, at the Frankfurt airport by this month end.

Located in the departures area above gate A65, the Tower Lounge offers the customary amenities in a floor area of 1,100 sq. meters (about 12,000 sq. ft.), big enough for up to 288 guests. The bistro area serves a buffet of drinks and a variety of savoury snacks, a soup of the day and a choice of warm or cold sandwiches. Office facilities include separate workstations equipped with complimentary Internet PCs, W-Fi/WLAN access, a fax and copier, credit card payphones and power points to re-charge mobile phones. The lounge also provides five modern showers.

The best part of the lounge for airplane buffs like me; sink into deep leather armchairs and view the apron traffic through the spacious panoramic windows allowing a spectacular view of the tarmac.

The new Lufthansa Tower Lounge replaces the existing Lufthansa Senator and Business Lounge at gate A51.
