Air Canada has opened a Maple Leaf Lounge at LaGuardia Airport, New York City.
The new lounge, located after security near Air Canada’s gates, is the first airline lounge to open in the new Terminal B Eastern Concourse. The new space features amenities including refreshments and a business center.
The 7,015ft² (651m²) lounge has capacity for 126 passengers and features a self-serve bar offering a wide selection of beverages, including Canadian wines and Lavazza specialty coffees. There is also a business center and comfortable seating with a view of the tarmac.
For business travelers, there is a cyber counter equipped with PCs and color printing, complimentary wi-fi and access to more than 7,000 digital newspaper and magazine content via the PressReader app. The Maple Leaf Lounge will operate seven days a week.
Andrew Yiu, vice president, product, at Air Canada, said, “We are excited to welcome Air Canada and Star Alliance eligible customers to our new LaGuardia Airport Maple Leaf Lounge, which has been created to enhance the overall travel experience for our premium customers.
“Showcasing contemporary design and artwork, the lounge is decorated with maple wood screen walls, Canadian-made furnishings, yet it also reflects the unique character that is New York City. Customers will be warmly received and enjoy a calm environment in which to work or relax before their Air Canada flight.”
