After extensive renovations, Japan Airlines (JAL) will reopen its lounge in the departure hall of Frankfurt International Airport on October 26, 2009.
The new lounge comprises both the First Class Lounge and the executive class Sakura Lounge, located at a conveniently short, 2-minute walk from the departure gates. The revamped area is now twice the size of the original Sakura lounge and reflecting the attention paid to feedback from customers, such amenities as shower rooms, free wired LAN connections and PC power outlets have been incorporated into the refurbished lounge in addition to the comprehensive business center and lounge facilities. Modelled after the concept of the lounge in JAL's main international hub - Narita International Airport in Tokyo, eligible passengers can look forward to a spacious and well-equipped lounge with a good ambience to relax in before their flight.
JAL connects Tokyo to Frankfurt with a once-daily scheduled flight that is fitted with four cabin classes - first, executive, the airline's award-winning latest premium economy, and economy. Using Frankfurt as a gateway, JAL also serves Budapest and Helsinki with codeshare flights operated by fellow oneworld alliance partners Malév-Hungarian Airlines and Finnair respectively.
