First look at Gold Coast Airport’s snazzy Comm Games Lounge

The Gold Coast Airport has revealed its plans to deliver a stylish and comfortable lounge for Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games athletes and officials.

The first look at the lounge, which promises to provide guests with a unique experience as they arrive and depart the Gold Coast, was unveiled today.

Gold Coast Airport Chief Operating Officer Marion Charlton said the lounge was a unique offering and a point of difference for Games Family travelling through GCA.


“As an airport we’re in the business of first and last impressions – we want to make sure Games Family have a warm and efficient welcome and goodbye,” Ms Charlton said.

“The GC2018 Airport Lounge is a space for our guests to relax and unwind in what is sure to be an intense period for them.

Ms Charlton said the lounge will have a beach and rainforest them to provide athletes with a taste of the Gold Coast.

“We’re aware that many athletes are here purely to compete and won’t necessarily have the chance to get out and explore the Coast and everything it has to offer. The theming and activations we have incorporated are designed to give people a truly local experience while they’re at the airport,” she said.

“Creating a dedicated space for Games Family also relieves potential congestion from the rest of the terminal during Games time.”
