Air France Unveils New Lounge At Munich Airport’s Terminal 1
Air France has unveiled their fully redesigned lounge at Munich-Franz Josef Strauss International Airport’s Terminal 1. The Lounge is dedicated to Air France, KLM and SkyTeam partner airlines’ Business Class and Flying Blue Elite Plus customers.
On Monday (December 12, 2022), Air France announced the opening of their fully redesigned lounge in Terminal 1 at Munich-Franz Josef Strauss International Airport in Germany. The 227 square meter 75-seat lounge is dedicated to Air France, KLM, and SkyTeam partner airlines’ Business Class and Flying Blue Elite Plus customers. Customers traveling in Economy and Premium Economy cabins can also purchase lounge access for €25 or 6,000 miles, subject to availability. As part of Air France’s move upmarket, the lounge celebrates the French-style travel experience and serves as a peaceful haven for relaxing, working or dining before a flight. For winter 2022/23, Air France will offer six daily flights between Munich and Paris-Charles de Gaulle. KLM also offers five daily flights between Munich and Amsterdam Schiphol.
The warm and elegant space features Air France’s signature colors with shades of blue and grey, with red flourishes, along with the company’s brand accent symbol, and historic winged seahorse emblem. Various areas of the lounge are divided by Champagne-lacquered metal screen structures. The furniture has been carefully chosen, including the iconic Egg armchair and other elements, by French designers such as Pierre Paulin, Patrick Jouin, and brothers Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec. In the design of the lounge, Air France has also utilized noble and natural materials such as oak and leather.
