British Airways today opened its doors to its new lounge at Rome Fiumicino airport. The lounge is also the launch of a brand new British Airways lounge concept which will be introduced also at other airports in the future. The aim is to offer “the very best of British and European design and delivering a luxurious and contemporary look and feel”.

The new lounge in Rome measures 460 sqm with seating for around 140 customers. It is divided into different areas suitable for different categories of passengers, either to those who need to work or those who want to relax before the flight.
