United Airlines announced plans to open its fourth Polaris Lounge, this one at George Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston.

The lounge will open its doors on June 29, 2018.

The Chicago-based airline originally planned to open the Houston lounge this summer. It recently opened its second and third Polaris Lounges in San Francisco and Newark respectively.

Like other Polaris Lounges, this one is open only to Polaris-ticketed customers. United says that the Houston lounge will feature “signature Houston elements.”

The Polaris Lounge is intended to bridge the in-lounge and in-flight experiences. Passengers are invited to sit down for a complete dinner prior to the flight in order to maximize sleep time once on board.

The lounge will feature seating that ranges from the very private, where the seats resemble an international first-class suite, to more open banquettes and a dining area with tables and chairs. Electrical outlets and USB ports will be available at virtually every seat.

In addition, the lounge will feature private daybeds equipped with Saks Fifth Avenue bedding, and shower suites featuring Cowshed Spa products.

The Premium bar will serve a wide assortment of drinks that may be ordered from any location within the Polaris Lounge.
