Airport lounges: what have you been missing?

It’s all too easy to mistake VIP lounges as a luxury reserved for wealthy and business-class passengers.

But not only is this indulgence surprisingly accessible to older travellers; it can also be extraordinarily practical.

If you have you ever wanted to try it out for yourself, now’s your chance to sample what you’ve been missing!

For a limited time only, and thanks to a special offer for over-60s passengers, you could soon be enjoying complimentary* Virgin Australia Lounge access. Click here to learn more, or continue reading to find out about the benefits you could soon be enjoying…

Your benefits can begin the second you arrive at the airport. If you’re travelling light with carry-on baggage, you can check-in directly at the Lounge.

Not only will you enjoy far more benefits than the average passenger; you will also get more time to enjoy them. 

Never settle for “ordinary” airport food again

We all know about the snacks, barista-made coffee and wine bar – but did you know you could also enjoy a full buffet breakfast, lunch or dinner?

With the menu rotating regularly throughout different lounges, every stopover offers a genuinely gourmet experience. And once you’ve sampled it, you’ll never want to go back to that stale airport café muffin!

Enjoy the chance to truly freshen up

You won’t need to wait until your destination to rejuvenate. If you have some extra time to spare, why not grab a complimentary towel, take a shower and indulge in some premium natural skin care products?

Take in the beautiful architecture

With new refurbishments, Virgin Australia Lounges around the country are becoming genuine works of art in their own right, rivalling any contemporary gallery or restaurant. You’ll feel like a VIP the second you step through that door.
