On Wednesday (July 6, 2023), Brussels Airlines announced the re-opening of their fully refurbished Sunrise Lounge in the T-zone at Brussels Airport. Business Class guests traveling on long-haul flights to Sub-Saharan will enjoy a fully-renovated space with more seating, more sleeping comfort, a renewed food and beverage offer and more. Upon entering, the new layout draws visitors immediately to the bright main area with impressive views of the tarmac. A large buffet offers a high-quality food range and more hot meal options, while the new Grohe Blue water fountains and Coca-Cola soft drink dispenser serve to reduce plastic bottles and cans. Guests can also tap their own perfect Belgian beer.

In Thursday’s announcement, Brussels Airlines’ CEO, Dorothea von Boxberg, said,

“We are delighted to offer our passengers travelling to Africa a very premium and homey lounge that caters to the needs of long haul travelers such as rest and relax, good food and the possibility to work. Focusing on what really matters to our guests, we are proud of our new Sunrise Lounge. Moreover, this complete make-over highlights our strong and long-standing connection with the African continent.”

Also commenting on the Sunrise Lounge refresh, Brussels Airport Company’s CEO, Arnaud Feist, added,

“We always strive to offer all our passengers an optimal airport experience and a wide range of options to relax, shop, or have something to eat or drink. Thanks to Brussels Airlines’ renewed Sunrise Lounge and the improvements that Brussels Airport is making in that area, passengers travelling from our T-zone can enjoy their time at the gate in an even more comfortable and convenient environment.”

Guests arriving from connecting flights will also have the opportunity to catch some rest in one of the five ‘nap boxes’ in the Sunrise Lounge before continuing their journey. Visitors can also freshen up in one of the new state-of-the-art shower suites. The refurbished lounge offers more space and 25 percent more seating capacity compared to the previous layout. As the Belgian home carrier, Brussels Airlines takes pride in working with local brands. The renewed lounge features natural oak furniture from Ethnicraft, as well as tableware and decorative accessories from Serax. Additionally, the wallpaper design is inspired by one of the many impressive landscapes on the African continent.
