South African Airways’ flagship Baobab Business Class Lounge at Johannesburg’s O.R. Tambo International Airport today rivals the best lounges being operated by international airlines across the world. The lounge is located at the international departures terminal on the Mezzanine floor, besides the passport control towards the A Gates. The passengers can easily access the lounge via the elevator, escalator or stairs.
The Baobab Business Class Lounge has been completely renovated. The design of the lounge is a remarkable departure from its earlier design and presents a brand new look and feel. While getting the lounge renovated the South African Airways has taken care to complement the design with the unique African roots and South African heritage.
