Lounge access for those on the cheapest of economy fares

Travelling on a cheap economy ticket but left with several hours to kill at Sydney or Melbourne international airports?

International luxury airport lounge brand No.1 Lounges has announced that travellers from Sydney and Melbourne airports without frequent flyer status or lounge access will be able to book access to its flagship brand The House.

A one-off payment, with no membership rules, will ensure lounge access regardless of the airline they are travelling with or class of ticket held.

Starting from $80 person (which is a fair whack, it must be said), the new concept will allow travellers to relax in first-class comfort for up to three hours prior to departure, with the option to buy additional hours online in-advance or during their visit.

The lounges offer a choice of seating areas, airport views, showers, and unlimited wifi, as well as television, newspapers, glossy magazines and charging points as standard.

Guests will enjoy white-linen a la carte dining, a fully tended bar (offering premium wines, beers and spirits, Champagne and classic cocktails) and barista coffees.

No.1 Lounge’s founder Phil Cameron said: “Australia is one of the world’s great travel destinations, and both Sydney and Melbourne airports are two of the very best international gateways. I am delighted we are able to offer a premium international departure to everyone.

“Whether travelling for a special occasion, holiday or work, we look forward to welcoming all passengers into our beautifully designed lounges.”

The House at Sydney Airport is located in the heart of Sydney Airport’s international Terminal 1 and has 120 seats with immediate views of Gate 51 and the runways beyond

The House at Melbourne Airport (below) is located in Terminal 2, has 140 seats and offers runway views.

No.1 Lounges created The House concept in conjunction with Etihad Airways as part of an international collaboration, which has also rolled-out at London’s Heathrow Airport.

No.1 has also partnered with Virgin Australia, which offers The House to all its eligible international passengers.

Travellers can book online at or visit The House in person to purchase access on the day. Access costs $80 online and $90 on the door.
