QantasLink has recently announced plans to build a new 280 square metre Qantas Regional Lounge at Mackay Airport, in keeping with its commitment to provide a network of upgraded lounges in key ports across Australia.
QantasLink executive manager, Narendra Kumar said the time was right to start construction on the new lounge, citing Mackay’s position as “a key resource and tourism centre in Central Queensland” and the airport’s potential as “an important growth market for QantasLink which offers air links to Brisbane, Gladstone, Rockhampton, Townsville and Cairns”.
QantasLink intends the regional lounge to cater for up to 80 customers, offering Qantas Club members and frequent flyers free wireless internet, Austar pay tv and a selection of foods and beverages.
