Airline operator Etihad Airways has opened its first US West Coast Premium Lounge for first and business class passengers in the Tom Bradley International Terminal at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) in California.
The new lounge is for exclusive use by first and business class guests, as well as Etihad Guest Platinum, Gold and Silver members, and Etihad Airways Partner airlines’ equivalent Platinum and Gold members.
Deborah Flint, CEO of Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA), the operator of LAX, said, “LAWA and our airline partners are committed to continuing our initiatives to transform and modernize LAX into a world-class airport that Angelenos and visitors deserve. We applaud Etihad Airways in bringing this exciting, new premium lounge experience that truly caters to the modern traveler.”
Martin Drew, senior vice president Americas, Etihad Airways, said, “As a world-leading airline, Etihad Airways continues to redefine travel, setting new benchmarks for innovative service on the ground and in the air.
“Our new lounge in Los Angeles demonstrates our unwavering commitment to travelers on the US West Coast, and in the USA as a whole, by providing them with the intuitive hospitality they have come to expect from our people and our brand. It gives us great pleasure to inaugurate this facility.”
More akin to top hotels, fine dining establishments and private members’ clubs, the new lounge provides a tranquil environment in which guests can relax, re-energize, be entertained, and enjoy the finest culinary experiences and hospitality services.
The space features luxuriously appointed seating, an à la carte dining area, showcase bar, TV area, shower facilities, complimentary high-speed wi-fi, multi-zone electrical and USB power outlets, and a selection of international magazines and daily newspapers. A separate VIP area can also be made available when required.
