South African Airways Unveils Premium Lounge Upgrade at OR Tambo International Airport
Today, marks a special day for South African Airways (SAA). We are delighted to announce the opening of the new international lounge at OR Tambo International Airport. Our commitment to offering customers exceptional services both in the air and on the ground, is revealed by the recent upgrades to our world-class airport lounges, called, The Lounge.
The opening of the OR Tambo International Premium lounge is the first part of renovations of all lounges, operated by SAA. The First-Class Platinum lounge at OR Tambo International will be renovated early 2024, to be followed by refurbishments of Qheberha, Cape Town, OR Tambo Domestic and Durban lounges.
In partnership with Discovery, and Investec, The Lounge features upgraded comforts where guests can connect, or be connected ahead of their travels, and boasts all-new contemporary design furniture and fittings as well as a carefully curated local art collection. Guests have the option to be seated with a view over the airport ramp or work in one of the focus booths or simply relax in a quiet zone. The space has been carefully planned should you wish to extend your meeting in our conference rooms or have a separate space to relax with the family.
A buffet dining menu is on offer throughout the day satisfying all palates. The new bar is a show masterpiece from which trained baristas & mixologists will offer a coffee of your choice, a selection of cocktails and mocktails or a choice of the finest South African wines and bubbly.
Most notably, state-of-the-art La Marzocco coffee machines, often referred to as the “Ferrari” of coffee machines. Sourced from Florence, Italy, the La Marzocco coffee machines form part of a heritage brand dating back to 1927 and are the pinnacle in coffee craftsmanship.
