TRADE RELEASE 01 March 2021

Virgin Australia has revealed its Lounge of the future, with the opening of the airline's highly anticipated Adelaide Airport Lounge.

The 283-seat Adelaide Lounge completes the airline’s network of seven domestic lounges across major Australian airports. All future domestic lounge refurbishments will be done in line with this new and fresh design thinking.

Adelaide Lounge features

The Coffee Bar: A central café seating area that transforms from a place to unwind over a coffee during the day into a wine bar at night.

The Cellar Door Hub: A feature space for South Australian wineries to bring their cellar door to the Lounge for seasonal wine tasting.

Distinct dining areas: Separate dining areas with diverse functionality including large social tables, and banquette seating for more private dining.

Lounge seating areas:

• The Library: A dedicated work area that features workstations with PCs, printing facilities, power sockets, and desk lamps, offering a functional environment to work on the fly (work spaces continue to be available throughout COVID-19).
• The Gallery Lounge: a chill-out zone complete with lounge chairs and a large flat-screen television.
• The Sunroom: A mixture of cosy seating arrangements to sit in comfort.
• The Long Stay: An inviting space with a wide variety of seating options.

Opening Hours (subject to change):

05.00 – 18.30 Monday to Friday
05.00 – 15.00 Saturday
07.50 – 18.30 Sunday


The Virgin Australia Lounge in Adelaide is located opposite gate 14 and 15. After security turn left and follow the way finding signs.

Enhanced Lounge menu unveiled today

To coincide with the opening, Virgin Australia has launched a new and fresh menu for guests, featuring a selection of sandwiches, salads, wraps and healthy snacks, prepared on site. An enhanced menu will be implemented at all Virgin Australia lounges in the coming weeks.

In an Australian airline first, Virgin Australia is also trialling a food ordering system, which offers guests end-to-end table service. Initially available in the Adelaide and Melbourne lounges, guests will be able to order food and beverages directly to their lounge seat or table, by simply scanning a QR code and placing an order on their phone.

The advancement provides a seamless table service for guests and reduces movement to further enhance the airline’s COVID-safe measures.

The opening of the Adelaide Lounge marks a significant moment for Virgin Australia’s future, with the airline expected to make further improvements to its customer offering, including a new and fresh onboard menu for Business Class, and a retail onboard menu for Economy and Economy-X guests to be revealed in the coming months.

Virgin Australia lounges in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Gold Coast, Adelaide and Perth are now open. The airline expects to open its Canberra lounge next month.
