LSG Sky Chefs Lounge GmbH (LSG Lounge) is proud to announce that it has been awarded the management of Japan Airlines’ (JAL) Sakura and First Class Lounges at Frankfurt Airport in Terminal 2. The LSG Lounge team developed a new gastronomic concept, including the accompanying equipment, as well as the design of the facility. Special attention was paid to ensuring that Japanese culture and the airline’s internationality are both clearly perceived by the guests.
The lounge experts had the support of Takugo Kobayashi, an LSG Sky Chefs expert Japanese chef, and his team in the development of the culinary concept in order to guarantee the authenticity of the dishes and their compliance with the strict requirements of Japanese cuisine.
“It is very important for us to understand the airline’s heritage and brand values and reflect them in our concept,” explained Jean-Claude Dichtl, LSG Lounge Director Operations & Projects.
The successful partnership between JAL and LSG Lounge was established at New York’s JFK Airport, where JAL guests have been welcomed at their facility there since early 2018. “We are delighted to now be able to also offer Japan Airlines’ guests an excellent stay at the Frankfurt lounges,” added Carsten Oellerich, Managing Director of LSG Lounge.
LSG Lounge began managing the JAL lounges in Frankfurt in early February.
