Air New Zealand to build new lounge at LAX

Air New Zealand has been chosen to design and manage a new Star Alliance lounge at the US$1.7 billion Tom Bradley International Terminal at Los Angeles International Airport.

Architectural firm Gensler will design the Los Angeles Lounge that will be the first Star Alliance branded lounge to feature a new design concept to meet the changing needs of today’s traveller. It will take inspiration from modernist LA architect of the 1950s and 1960s and will incorporate defined spaces to suit passenger needs ranging from social gatherings around the bar to quiet time in the library.

Mark Schwab, CEO Star Alliance, said, "I would like to thank Air New Zealand for accepting the lead role in this project. Over the years the airline has built a reputation for unique product innovation. I am confident that this will blend well with our requirements as an alliance to offer a highly attractive lounge experience to our customers as they travel through Los Angeles."

Roger Poulton, Air New Zealand general manager Americas, added, "We are proud that Star Alliance has entrusted us with such a prestigious project. We look forward to working with our fellow Star Alliance members and the Alliance organisation to create a new lounge product which will be highly rated by our culturally very diverse customers."

The new lounge is set to open in May 2013 and will replace the existing Star Alliance Lounge which was opened in 2007 as well as the Air New Zealand Koru Lounge in Terminal 2, as the airline will be relocating to the Tom Bradley International Terminal in early 2014.
