As part of a refresh of its branding, Air New Zealand has been expanding and retrofitting its Koru Club lounges based on a relaxed and welcoming ‘Kiwi bach’ theme. This, together with new Zambesi-designed uniforms for its staff, increased use of the Koru symbol and a new greenstone-inspired colour palette, is all aimed at giving the airline a more uniquely New Zealand identity.
Recyclable carpet, low energy lighting and tiles made of recycled plastic bottles and inspired by the Southern Alps are some of the sustainable design features in Air New Zealand’s upgraded Christchurch Koru lounge.
As well as sustainable features it also seats about double the previous number of customers and has views of the runway and Southern Alps through floor to ceiling windows.
