Swissport has opened its 49th Aspire airport lounge, at Ottawa Macdonald-Cartier International Airport.
The new lounge, Swissport’s fifth in Canada, is airside, between the domestic and international areas. It occupies 3,700ft2 (340m2) and has a capacity for up to 100 guests.
The lounge is open to all passengers regardless of airline and class of travel. It offers unrivaled panoramic airport views, comfortable seating and a unique food and drink selection throughout the day. The food offer, adjusted seasonally, includes vegetarian and vegan choices as well as food and beverages from local suppliers. Other lounge amenities include a business center meeting room, baggage lockers and free wi-fi.
The opening comes after Swissport was chosen as the preferred lounge operator by the Ottawa International Airport Authority. Aspire completed the construction and interior design works in record time. The Authority’s CEO and president, Mark Laroche, said, “Swissport’s commitment to excellence in ground-handling at Ottawa Airport, the company’s proven lounge expertise, and its compelling proposal, have instilled a high level of confidence in the lounge and its ability to delight our clients.”
As part of its airport ground services portfolio, Swissport manages 49 lounges at more than 30 airports in 13 countries under its hospitality brand Aspire Airport Lounges.
