Qatar Airways is opening its new Premium Lounge at London Heathrow this week. The Premium Lounge at Terminal 4 will be the airline’s first dedicated facility outside its Doha hub, underscoring London’s importance as a destination for the airline which will commence its fifth daily service from March 25.
Lounge access will be restricted to the airline’s First and Business class passengers only. Members of the airline’s frequent flier program Privilege Club, even those holding status levels, will not be allowed access, which demonstrates the airline’s focus or rather lack thereof.
The lounge is designed to resemble a boutique hotel or private member’s club and offers a theatre-style Global Brasserie kitchen, delicatessen, and elegant Signature Martini bar. The lounge also offers private shower facilities along with the usual business facilities including computers, printers, and Wi-Fi internet connectivity.
