Qantas is giving its loyalty members and Business Class travellers even more room to relax pre-flight in its revamped Regional Lounge at Karratha Airport.

Re-opened today, the bright and stylish lounge has nearly tripled in size to seat 80 people.

Located in a new airside area on the upper level of the airport, the lounge was designed by Woods Bagot to draw on the unique Pilbara landscape with rich vibrant reds and oranges reflecting the arid land and muted greens representing the native flora.

Floor-to-ceiling windows have been installed to provide natural light and front row views of the tarmac, while two pieces of Indigenous artwork by local West Australian artist Jukuja Dolly Snell from the Mangkaja Arts Resource Agency titled “Kurtal” and “Kilangkilang” feature throughout the lounge.

Other highlights include a selection of food and premium Australian beer and wine, a hosted experience during flight departures as well as quiet spaces to work and relax, complimentary Wi-Fi, newspapers and magazines and Foxtel from large TV screens.

Qantas Regional Manager of Western Australia, Julian Barry said the opening of the new lounge signified Qantas’ clear commitment to Karratha and the Pilbara region.

“As the only airline to offer a lounge at Karratha Airport, the new space is a great value-add for travellers from the Pilbara community as well as the important Fly-in Fly-out market.”

Julian Barry, Qantas Regional Manager of Western Australia

“The lounge has been designed with our most frequent flyers mind. It accommodates the mix of corporate, leisure and fly-in fly-out workers with added space to work and relax, while showcasing the beauty of the natural landscape through design.

“We’re pleased to continue to support our customers in Karratha with the frequency of flights they need, and an ongoing investment in the lounge and inflight experience.”
