Air Canada unveiled its newest Maple Leaf Lounge located in St. John’s International Airport’s (YYT) recently expanded departures area of the terminal building.
With a panoramic view of iconic Signal Hill and the ocean, the new Maple Leaf Lounge offers significantly more space, upgraded amenities, including a business centre, and a wider assortment of refreshments than the previous St. John’s airport lounge.
“We are excited to welcome Air Canada and Star Alliance eligible customers to our new St. John’s Maple Leaf Lounge. This unique space has been created to enhance the overall travel experience of our premium customers,” said Andrew Yiu, vice-president, Product at Air Canada. “Showcasing contemporary design and artwork, the lounge features maple wood screen walls, Canadian-made furnishings and we are also proud to hosts local art and crafts that reflect the charm of Newfoundland and Labrador’s landscape and people. Customers will be warmly received and enjoy a calm environment in which to work or relax before their Air Canada flight.”
The Maple Leaf Lounge is the only lounge available to travellers departing from YYT and has the capacity for up to 84 customers. With 77% more space than the lounge it is replacing, the 46 additional seats provide visitors with a spacious and relaxing environment.
The space features a self-serve bar, offering a wide selection of beverages, including Canadian wines and Lavazza specialty coffees, a selection of light snacks, a business centre and comfortable seating with a view of the tarmac. Business travellers planning to work on site may also take advantage of a cyber counter equipped with PCs and colour printing, complimentary WiFi and access to more than 7,000 digital newspaper and magazine content via the PressReader app.
