Airport Lounge Development (ALD), a common-use lounge operator in the USA, has opened a temporary Club facility at Pittsburgh International Airport in Pennsylvania, which can be accessed by customers until a permanent lounge is completed this autumn.
The Club is located in Concourse C, between gates C54 and C56, and is accessible from concourses A, B and D. In the temporary lounge, guests can enjoy complimentary premium alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, snacks, wi-fi, and a variety of reading materials. It is the fourth ALD lounge to open this year, and 17th in overall.
The temporary lounge provides seating for 35 guests and is divided into zones to accommodate and anticipate the needs of each traveler. The Club’s Replenish Zone extends an array of food and drink options, while the Productivity Zone provides easy access to electrical outlets and a work station with computer and a printer. The Relaxation Zone allows guests to take a break and rest before a long flight. Private restrooms are also available in the lounge.
Nancy Knipp, senior vice president of ALD, said, “Recognized as one of the top 10 airports in the USA, Pittsburgh Airport is the perfect location to continue ALD’s expansion. As the demand for a lounge alternative continues to increase, ALD provides a solution for airports looking to improve the traveler experience and grow non-aeronautical revenues.”
ALD’s lounges are available to all guests, regardless of class of ticket purchased, choice of airline or affinity membership, by purchasing a day pass online or at the lounge for US$40. The Club welcomes members of Priority Pass, Lounge Key, Lounge Club and Diners Club International, along with AAA Discount Rewards members.
