Repainting entire streets with an obscure colour schemeYesterday Eurostar reopened its new look Brussels Business Premier Lounge following two months of refurbishment, in the latest phase of its extensive programme of station improvements to enhance the passenger experience.
The new look lounge has a sleek and elegant design to create a light and airy ambience with areas to work, catch up with colleagues or to simply relax and unwind.
Now open to Business Premier passengers and Eurostar Frequent Traveller carte blanche holders, new features include:
• Gentle perimeter lighting which will subtly change throughout the day to provide the calming effect of natural light
• Digital screens and iPads around the room will keep passengers up to date with travel information, news and weather updates and information on our destinations and trains.
• An easy to connect to wi-fi solution
• Power and USB sockets at each seat
• A refreshed food offering with fresh brownies and muffins in the morning, and tapas-style saucisson, cheese or olives in the evening
• Everything that you loved from before, including a wide selection of newspapers and magazines, fully stocked bar and a dedicated reception desk to assist with taxi bookings or reservations at your destination
Nick Mercer, Eurostar Commercial Director, said: “We are committed to improving our customers’ business experience with a seamless journey on both our core and connecting routes, and the new Brussels business lounge is a key part of this. We’re looking forward to our travellers’ reactions as they begin to enjoy the new space.”
The refurbishment of the Brussels-Midi Business Premier lounge is the latest in a series of improvements underway across Eurostar’s terminals. The brand new ticket office area at St. Pancras International was completed in July 2014, and work has started at Lille Europe station where capacity is being increased in response to higher demand from passengers using the station to connect by high-speed rail across France.
