Air Canada Opens Renovated International Maple Leaf Lounge in Montreal Airport
Air Canada announced the reopening of its international Maple Leaf Lounge at Montréal–Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport.
The cavernous lounge, located between gates 52 and 53, covers an area of 11,000 square feet or 1,022 square meters with seating capacity for 259 passengers. Air Canada installed floor-to-ceiling windows throughout the lounge to give passengers an unobstructed view of the tarmac. The décor is intended to reflect the “majestic natural beauty of Canada” as well as Canadian and Quebec artistry.
The lounge is divided into several zones the airline said were inspired by nature, including one with a garden ceiling intended to create the feeling of a forest canopy. Guests will have access to hot and cold dishes, a full bar, specialty coffees, complimentary Wi-Fi, a variety of seating areas, and showers with heated floors. Furnishings are by Canadian designers including Nienkämper, Mobilier Moderne, and Brent Comber and maple wood is clearly in evidence throughout the lounge.
Business-class passengers traveling on Air Canada or a Star Alliance partner, as well as members of the Maple Leaf Club, Star Alliance Gold members, holders of Aeroplan-branded American Express cards, and top tier members of the airline’s frequent flyer program, all have access to the new lounge.
