JAL to Re-Open Upgraded Bangkok Sakura Lounge

Japan Airlines will re-open its renovated Sakura Lounge at Bangkok International Airport (Suvarnabhumi Airport) on March 1, introducing upgraded and additional facilities to premium customers visiting Thailand.

Enhanced facilities include renewed and additional shower suites; a new smoking area; a new carry-on baggage area with digital numeric locks; an extensive food and beverage counter; and power and USB port outlets adjacent to each seat.

The new space was redesigned during a five-month-long renovation with a focus on creating a high quality and elegant environment, akin to the airline’s international lounges in Japan.

Nippon-Tei, a long-established Japanese restaurant in Bangkok, will provide new menus, which will include its signature beef curry dish as well as a range of popular Japanese appetizers.

The renovated lounge has a similar design concept to its Sakura Lounge for business class passengers at its Haneda and Narita airport hubs, and boasts 169 seats, a built-in smoking room; lockers for carry-on baggage; and dedicated shower suites.

Bangkok boasts the highest overseas flight frequencies in JAL’s system, with six flights a day on widebody jets, linking the Thai capital with Narita, Haneda, Nagoya and Osaka.

Japan Airlines has also renovated its Sakura business class lounge at Okinawa’s Naha Airport.

Besides Bangkok Sakura Lounge, JAL also has lounges at airports around the globe including Singapore (Changi) International Airport, Soekarno Hatta International Airport in Jakarta, and Heathrow International Airport.
