The Kempegowda Airport authorities have announced that the lounges of the domestic and international stage will remain shut from June 1, 2019, as they are being revamped. The renovation process is said to be run in two phases spreading over 18-20 months.
The airport is said to have two lounges each at the Domestic and International security held areas being operated by the Above Ground Level and Plaza Premium.
The Above Ground Level lounge at both the airports, that is open to only privileged passengers, Mastercard club members and walk-in guests would remain shut from June 1, 2019 to April 30, 2020 while the Plaza Premium, a lounge open to all would remain shut from June 1, 2019 to March 31, 2021.
The Chief Commercial Officer of the Bangalore International Airport Limited (BIAL), Kenneth R has said that after the renovation is completed the on-ground experiences of the travelers would improve. Their mission is to allow the lounges to appear as a destination in itself.
Once the renovation is complete, the passengers can not only experience amenities of live cooking, digital zones, wine cellars, and a library but the passengers with a long haul or in-transit can pamper themselves at the spa.
The BIAL has also mentioned that the new lounges would offer a great chance to provide a luxurious experience for their passengers by providing more space to the travelers and by developing a strong Food and Beverage service.
