Following the recent expansion of the Departures Lounge at St. John’s International Airport, Air Canada has announced plans to open a completely redesigned Maple Leaf Lounge at the airport this Fall. The expanded Maple Leaf lounge will provide seating for up to 84 customers in the 3,573 square feet of lounge space, which has been appointed with Canadian furnishings as well as local art and crafts to reflect the charm of Newfoundland and Labrador. Amenities will include a dedicated Air Canada reception agent, bathrooms, a Samsung TV zone, and a self-serve bistro and bar with a superior food and beverage offering. The large windows offering panoramic views of Signal Hill and the ocean are perhaps the most impressive feature of the lounge.
Air Canada currently operates 22 Maple Leaf Lounges worldwide, with 16 located in Canada and a new lounge due to open in Saskatoon later this Fall. Air Canada frequent fliers can also enjoy the Maple Leaf experience at lounges in New York’s LaGuardia and Newark airports as well as the international airports that serve Los Angeles, London, Frankfurt, and Paris.
