Air Canada announced the opening of the Maple Leaf Lounge Express in the transborder departure area at Toronto Pearson International Airport.

The new lounge, located in the new commuter facility Terminal 1 in Toronto, is near the gates Air Canada uses for transborder flights, namely F84 through F99. It seats 50 and offers travelers a variety of hot and cold drinks and light snacks. It is after the airport’s U.S. Customs and Border Protection preclearance area.

The Maple Leaf Lounge Express in Toronto is the airline’s first “express” lounge. It was designed for passengers traveling between Canada and the United States.

Passengers with a business-class tickets or higher elite status in the airline’s Altitude frequent-flyer program as well as Star Alliance Gold members taking an Air Canada or United Airlines flight are eligible to use the new lounge.

“This unique space has been created to enhance the overall travel experience of our premium customers and represents a commitment to our transborder product,” said Andrew Yiu, the airline’s vice president of product.

Air Canada recently opened a Maple Leaf Lounge in the new terminal building at LaGuardia Airport and has a total of 23 Maple Leaf Lounges worldwide.
