LSG Sky Chefs Lounge GmbH (LSG Lounge) announced today that it has been awarded the management of Japan Airlines’ 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,” said a release from the company. “Special attention was paid to ensuring that Japanese culture and the airline's internationality are both clearly perceived by the guests.”

Chef Takugo Kobayashi worked with a team to meet the airline's strict requirements for 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 and Projects.

JAL and LSG Lounge worked together at New York’s JFK Airport 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.
