Qantas to add additional seating at Hobart Qantas Club


Qantas is going to provide their customers a bit relief at the busy Hobart Airport. The Australian airline has decided to upgrade its Qantas Club to provide some additional seating to the customers visiting the airport lounge.

According to the new upgrade plan, an open space will be created by removing the Club’s business centre. A workstation will be constructed instead where the customers will have the facility of computer and printer provided by the airline. The existing menu will also be improved by introducing a sandwich press and constructing a new buffet.

Stephen Farquer, the airline’s Regional Manager for Tasmania, said that regular customers are likely to welcome the addition of extra seats, especially during the peak times when it becomes tough to manage a seat at the busy lounge.

Qantas introduced an additional 78 flights to Hobart during the summer months following a surge of demand for their services. Mr Farquer said that the extra seats at the Hobart lounge would give a relief to their customers who had been asking for it.

The lounge will remain closed from February 9 to four days onward for the renovation purpose. It will be reopened on February 13 and will be able to host 95 customers upon the completion.

Currently, QantasLink is operating 35 weekly return services from Hobart to Sydney and Melbourne. However, the number will be increased to 46 from March 8.

The airline will also add an additional 2,420 seats on its two-class Boeing 717 jet aircraft to-and-from Hobart in response to the gradually increasing market demand.
