British Airways recently unveiled its updated lounge at O.R. Tambo International Airport in Johannesburg, South Africa. The lounge now features an open concept with a separate dining area for first-class customers, and British Airways’ most recent lounge concept, first debuted in 2018.
The lounge, which accommodates up to 247 passengers, boasts a mix of British and South African elements in its decor. A modern bar allows guests to socialize, while office space provides a spot to work, outfitted with plentiful charging ports. A range of seating options are scattered throughout the space. Areas are split into zones to fit travelers’ differing moods, with different lighting and music for each zone.
The lounge offers a new dining menu as well, with seasonal salads and local charcuterie available to all guests and an a la carte menu available to first-class passengers, alongside an extensive wine list.
“We’re delighted to present the next step in our significant customer investment with the re-opening of the Johannesburg lounge,” said Carolina Martinoli, director of brand and customer experience, British Airways. “Every detail has been carefully designed and we’ve created a space to meet our customers’ needs — whether they want to relax with a hot meal, work in peace or enjoy a drink at the lobby bar, the lounge will get their travels off to the best start.”
