Wellington Domestic Lounge

The Air New Zealand Domestic lounge at Wellington Airport is closing on 26 March 2019 for construction for its comprehensive refurbishment.

During this time there are two temporary lounge facilities available for members to access. These are both located after proceeding through domestic aviation security screening: on level 1, directly after domestic Avsec screening and on level 0, after boarding gates 14 & 15.

The temporary lounge facilities will still feature the organic fair trade Hummingbird barista made coffee, however an adjusted menu will be offered, which includes some of the usual staple items.

There are no bathrooms in these temporary spaces, however the airport's bathroom facilities are available instead.

When complete, the Domestic lounge will provide 10% more seating, with six different zones to suit the needs of our members, including café, bar/barista, business and quiet areas and will be in the signature modern lounge design as seen in some of our other lounges like Tauranga, Hamilton and Dunedin.

Thank you for your patience and understanding whilst this refurbishment upgrade gets underway, we look forward to welcoming our members and their guest/s into the refreshed lounge when finished.
