Just desert for Jetstar customers
THERE is nothing like a glass of wine and a selection of cakes to help Kirsty Wake calm her pre-flight nerves.
Ms Wake and her sister Kat- rina treated themselves during the opening day of the Jetstar Lounge at the Gold Coast Airport before their flight to Melbourne yesterday.
Anxious flyer Kirsty said a bit of pampering was the best way to prepare for a flight.
“Sometimes I get a bit nervous before a flight, so a bit of relaxation is a good thing for me,” Kirsty, 26, said.
“I like it because it's just like the Qantas lounge, but it's a lot cheaper.”
The new lounge in the Jetstar terminal has a capacity for 120 people and features a range of benefits, including designated children's play area and cinema, complimentary food and beverages, newspapers and magazines, internet access, mobile phone recharge stations and plasma screens showing movies, music videos and television news.
There is also free entry for children under six.
Jetstar CEO Bruce Buchanan said Gold Coast Lounge would be a welcome addition for Jetstar passengers travelling from the Gold Coast.
“Gold Coast Lounge is the latest example of Jetstar's commitment to offering even greater choice to our customers both in the air and on the ground in our largest holiday port,” Mr Buchanan said.
“The opening of our lounge is part of our unique commitment to the Gold Coast.”
Mr Buchanan said the opening of the lounge would also support local jobs.
“In addition our support to increased flight network, it's also a boost of the development of local employment through our recently expanded crew base here,” he said.
International and domestic Jetstar passengers can access the lounge for a fee when they book their Jetstar flights.
