In preparation for the launch of its A380 service between Tokyo and Honolulu ANA is building a new lounge space in Honolulu and the airline has now released details of what travellers can expect.

The new lounge space will incorporate both an “ANA Suite Lounge” and an “ANA Lounge” and is scheduled to open in spring 2019.

New ANA Lounges In Honolulu

The new lounges will be located on the 3rd floor of Terminal 2 (Main Terminal) at Honolulu international airport above what is currently Gate 29 (this will be renamed Gate C4).

ANA says that the new lounges will offer a number of unique features designed to allow passengers to “enjoy and relax every moment of their trip” including a dedicated jet bridge which will allow direct boarding for the A380’s upper deck premium cabin passengers.

Various design aspects have been incorporated into the lounges to both evoke a feeling of Japan and to ensure passengers are as comfortable as possible. These aspects include a family area designed to be reminiscent of a tidal pool (see image 1 below) and a traditional coffered ceiling created with Hawaiian wood (image 2).

The airline has said that the ANA Suite Lounge (image 3) will have an “exclusive and calm atmosphere where passengers can relax” while the ANA Lounge area will “dynamically depict a design of the sea, sky, and trees symbolizing Hawaiian nature on the floor, walls, and ceilings”.

Thoughts

I’m torn. Based on the brief descriptions of the two lounges that ANA have provided I like the sound of the ANA Suite Lounge (for First Class passengers) but, of the two images provided by the airline, I prefer the look of the ANA lounge – it looks brighter.

These lounges are still almost over a year away from opening so there could still be quite a few changes and new features to be announced – watch this space and I’ll update the blog as and when more information is released.
