Access to a Business Class lounge before a flight to the UK or Europe is one of the 5 Business Class Benefits we wrote about previously and is highly sought after. As Qatar Airways doesn't have its own lounge at Auckland Airport, the Fine Travel team is frequently asked which lounge Business Class passengers can use.
At Auckland Airport Qatar Airways partners with fellow One World Alliance Member Qantas. Qantas operates a Business Class lounge and a separate First Class lounge at Auckland Airport (only Qatar Airways Emerald Status Oneworld Members can use the First Class Lounge).
Since starting the direct service between Auckland and Doha in 2017, Qatar Airways Business Class has been extremely popular with Fine Travel clients travelling to the UK and Europe and has received very positive reviews. The release of the revolutionary Qatar Airways Business Class Qsuite, which is more akin to travelling in First Class, has only added to this popularity.
In Doha, Qatar Airways Business Class passengers have access to the expansive Al Mourjan lounge. For clients with a longer stopover who aren't looking to leave the airport, the Al Mourjan lounge offers the usual comforts of a Business Class lounge (meals, drinks, etc) as well as sleeper pods and Quiet Rooms for those looking to put their feet up.
