Sydney International First Lounge

Sydney International First lounge

The First Lounge is a signature element of our renewed focus on world-class, innovative design that commenced with the introduction of our award-winning Skybed in 2003.


Designed in tandem with the new Qantas A380 aircraft interiors, and being an Australian company with a global customer base. The ultra-contemporary design is an amalgam of the best design and materials Australia and the world have to offer. The original design was conceived by internationally acclaimed Australian industrial designer Marc Newson using furnishings and finishes that are amongst the best in the world.
