Aspire opens its first lounge in Australia at Perth Airport

Swissport has announced the opening of its first lounge under its Aspire brand in Australia.

The Perth airport Terminal 2 lounge has seating for up to 120 guests, and offers ‘carefully selected food and drink options, adjusted seasonally, with small, local suppliers ensuring a taste of Western Australia’.

During the month of August, the lounge is offering 50% on standard online entry, at A$22 instead of A$44. It is currently open Monday to Friday between 4 am and 4 pm.

Brad Moore, Managing Director, Australasia, Swissport, said:

We are excited to bring our renowned Aspire lounge brand to Perth Airport. It will make travelling for our guests as relaxing as possible. Our lounge products are carefully designed to meet the unique and evolving needs of our airport and airline partners. The remote area workers that frequent Perth’s Terminal 2 will have access to a peaceful new space for socializing and dining, adding some extra comforts to the start of their journey.
