THE LOFT by Burssels Airlines and Lexus wins ‘Europe’s Leading Airline Lounge 2022’ for fourth year in a row. The lounge continues to develop and now welcomes a brand new kid’s corner.
For the fourth year running, THE LOFT at Brussels Airport – created and managed by Brussels Airlines and Lexus – has been named ‘Europe’s Leading Airline Lounge 2022’ at the prestigious World Travel Awards. The award is voted on by both lounge guests and travel industry professionals.
For Peter Gerber, CEO of Brussels Airlines, the award is a sign of appreciation for the service the airline offers its customers. “Receiving this prestigious award – voted on by travel and tourism professionals as well as customers – for the fourth year, is a true recognition for our welcoming staff. They are invested in offering our guests a unique experience in THE LOFT, even in challenging circumstances. It has always been our mission, together with our partners who are driven by the highest quality, to make our guests feel taken care of every day. Thank you to the team and all involved partners for their relentless commitment in putting our customers first.”
The unique airline lounge concept, is centered on guests experiencing comfort, technology and design with a blend of ‘Belgitude’ and Japanese hospitality.
Covering an area of more than 2,000 m², THE LOFT offers seating for up to 500 guests. It is divided into areas with distinctive ambiences and features, including a central bar, seating zones and a break-out space that is ideal for those who need to work while on the move.
Lounge guests are provided with a wealth of facilities like SPA Grohe shower suites’, nap rooms with starlit ceilings and LS Shiatsu-effect massage chairs. Guests can also indulge in Belgian delicatessen with a masterclass hosted by a Neuhaus maître chocolatier.
Brand new kid’s corner
The Loft continues to develop and created a brand new kid’s corner. The separate kids’ corner – inspired by the Belgian Smurfs – opened mid-September and provides the guests’ children their own private nook to play, read or be creative.
This area will also welcome ‘Unaccompanied Minors’, minors travelling with Brussels Airlines without their parents, and who sometimes have a few hours to spare at the airport during their lay-over.
