Rockhampton Qantas Club reopens in style

The wait is over, the Rockhampton Qantas Club has reopened and there are bird’s eye tarmac views

Yesterday, Qantas Opened a new Qantas Club at Rockhampton Airport, offering business and leisure travellers a space to unwind in time for the peak Christmas travel period.

The airline’s newest lounge packs twice the punch as its predecessor – the 200 square metre space seating up to 65 guests, which is double the capacity of the previous lounge.

The Rockhampton Qantas Club will open one hour prior to each Qantas operated service, with Qantas Club members, Gold, Platinum and Platinum One and eligible oneworld frequent flyers all able to enjoy the new lounge.

Qantas Club Rockhampton Airport: What to expect

In terms of aesthetics, the new lounge will feature artwork by local indigenous artist, Brandon Butler, which pays respect to the traditional owners and represents a journey onto Darumbal Country where the airport is located.

After admiring the art, guests will be able to enjoy bird’s eye views over the Rockhampton Airport tarmac, thanks to the new lounge’s upstairs location.

If work is on your mind, the Rockhampton Qantas Club offers purposefully designed work areas, but if standing desks are more your thing, the lounge also has high tables. Rest assured, you’ll be working with high-speed Wi-Fi before your flight.

Whether you’re on the clock or kicking back, the lounge stocks premium Australian beer and wines alongside a selection of sweet treats and savoury snacks to keep your pre-flight spirits high.

QantasLink CEO John Gissing said Rockhampton is a key port for QantasLink and the new Qantas Club has been designed to give frequent flyers a great experience before they take off.

“The space has been designed with business and leisure travellers in mind. While we expect the lounge will be well utilised by business travellers, it’s also opening just in time for the peak Christmas travel period for our leisure Qantas Club members and tiered frequent flyer,” Mr Gissing said.

Qantas currently operates 48 services each week to Rockhampton from Brisbane and Mackay using the airline’s fleet of Q400 and Boeing 717 aircraft.

Rockhampton was one of the last two Qantas lounges to reopen in the airline’s domestic network, following a closure of all lounges during the pandemic.

The new-look Qantas lounge in Port Headland is expected to reopen soon, while upgrades to Adelaide and Auckland lounges are said to be completed next year.
