TravelCube is pleased to announce the expansion of its popular airport lounge collection with the addition this month of new facilities in Australia, the Philippines, Cambodia and Taiwan.
The introduction of new lounges in Brisbane, Cebu, Phnom Penh, Siem Reap and Taipei means travel agents can now secure passes to more than 75 lounges in 65 cities around the world, including many of the most popular destinations for Australian travellers.
TravelCube Pacific Vice President Sales and Marketing John Stucci says airport lounges are now the company’s most popular non-hotel product in Australia.
“With Australian passengers travelling such long journeys and arriving at airport around the world at all times of the day and night, it is no surprise that we are seeing extraordinary demand for airport lounge passes,” says Stucci.
“Over the past 18 months we have responded to that demand by dramatically increasing our collection, particularly in Europe, where we now offer more than 25 lounges at key airports such as Frankfurt, London Gatwick and Paris Charles De Gaulle.”
All lounges are operated by independent companies, including Servisair and Premier Plaza Lounges, which now boasts an extensive network at airports across Asia, Canada and Australia.
Passes – which can provide lounge access for anything from two hours to an unlimited time – range in price from $17 at the T.E.I Airport Lounge in Tokyo’s Narita Airport to $113 at the Al Maha Transit Airport Lounge in Doha. In most cases passes cover all inclusions, such as food, alcoholic beverages, shower facilities, Wi-Fi and local telephone calls.
Stucci says TravelCube’s airport lounge collection is set for continued growth in 2016.
“Companies such as Plaza Premium are pursuing rapid expansion and as they add new lounges at new destinations we will ensure Australian travel agents gain access to fully-inclusive passes.
“At the same time we are seeing multiple lounges opening in some airports and already we offer a choice of facilities in more than a dozen airports, including Singapore, Madrid and Toronto. That trend will continue, ensuring Australian travellers have the option of experiencing a standard or luxury lounge.”
