“Together with Malmö Aviation, we are really pleased to be able to offer the airline’s passengers really nice service in a good location in the passenger flow. The target group is frequent travellers with high demands who we hope and believe will appreciate the new lounge,” says Charlotte Ljunggren, airport director at Göteborg Landvetter Airport.
Malmö Aviation’s new lounge is located after the security checkpoint, by Gate 16, which is the airline’s main gate at Göteborg Landvetter.
“We are really pleased and curious about this project because this is our first lounge in a location like this. This is a way to provide greater comfort and less stress for our passengers. Now, when passengers are checked in and ready for their flight, there will be time to get to the lounge and have some time to take a breather, drink a cup of coffee and have a chat before boarding the aircraft,” says Mathias Winberg, regional manager at Malmö Aviation.
There will be a variety of settings in the lounge depending on how passengers want to spend their time – one area that is like a living room, with sofas that encourage passengers to have new encounters, a bar area and an area that is somewhat more isolated for people who want to use their time in the lounge to work.
In the summer of 2014, Swedavia will open up the departure hall at Göteborg Landvetter, removing the divider that separates domestic and international passengers in order to make better use of all the gates at the airport. Now international flights will also have access to gates that were previously reserved for domestic flights. As a result, the airport has reduced the number of bus shuttles out to the aircraft by 40 per cent – which benefits both passengers and the environment.
“Malmö Aviation’s new lounge is another step in a long line of measures that we are carrying out so that Göteborg Landvetter can handle the increased air travel from our region,” Ms Ljunggren notes.
