IMG_0350Air Canada announced the opening of a Maple Leaf Lounge at Saskatoon John G. Diefenbaker International Airport in Saskatchewan, Canada.

The new lounge is the airline’s 23rd and showcases local design and art, including artwork by two Saskatchewan artists, Shawn Evans and Holly Friesen.

The art draws on the pastoral landscape of Saskatchewan, the airline said. It also features Canadian-made furniture and the maple wood screens typical of other Maple Leaf lounges.

The lounge was designed “to enhance the overall travel experience for our premium customers,” said Andrew Yiu, the airline’s vice president for product.

The local tourism authority projects a sharp increase in arrivals into Saskatoon, it said.

Saskatoon is the largest city in Saskatchewan and is located along the Trans-Canada Yellowhead Highway. It was founded in 1882.
