Hong Kong-based Plaza Premium Group and Air France announced they have opened a redesigned lounge for the airline at Montréal’s Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport. The renewed lounge is now available for Air France’s Business and Flying Blue Elite Plus customers as well as Plaza Premium Group customers. Located in the international section of the terminal, this 490 sq. m. lounge has a seating capacity of 149. Bathed in light, it boasts a large bay window offering a view of the runways, the airline’s aircraft and one of the slopes of Mount Royal overlooking the city of Montréal.
Air France worked together with Canadian companies to create most of the furniture and lighting. The Air France colours – shades of blue, greys and whites, with touches of red – are dominant, as well as the Accent, the Air France brand symbol, and the winged seahorse, the company’s historical symbol, reminding everyone of its rich history. Champagne lacquered metal screens provide structure to the lounge. Customers will be hosted by the award-winning Plaza Premium Group servicing and culinary team. An uplifting lounge experience will start right at the entrance. Automatic eligibility kiosks are also available for greater fluidity. They then enter the main lounge area, where seats and large sofas are available for everyone to relax, eat or work in comfort. A shared work area is also available. Free Wi-Fi and USB sockets are also available to all customers.
Flying Blue Ultimate customers have access to a more private space, with large sofas and seats to feel at home. An area allows customers to shower or freshen up before their flight. Finally, for those looking for travel inspiration, an ‘Air France Travel Guide’ screen gives customers ideas for their upcoming trips. At the heart of the lounge, a vast area offers catering centred around French cuisine. A self-service buffet offers hot and cold, savoury and sweet dishes to meet everyone’s expectations throughout the day. The company also offers vegetarian and gluten-free dishes. A large bar also offers a wide selection of French wines and champagnes.
The Air France lounge in Montréal is open daily from 2pm to 10pm for Air France and KLM customers. Access is free for Business and Flying Blue Elite Plus customers, and customers travelling in Economy or Premium Economy can purchase lounge access subject to availability.
