Air Canada unveils premium lounge at London Heathrow T2

The International Maple Leaf Lounge was designed by ‘dialogue 38’, and includes Canadian-inspired artwork and products, and laminated glass walls

Air Canada has opened its new lounge at London Heathrow Airport’s Terminal 2, which itself opened on 4 June 2014. According to the carrier, the International Maple Leaf Lounge has been designed to celebrate Canadian design, artistry and craftsmanship.

Among the key features are a Quiet Zone with reclining pods equipped with satellite-fed televisions, USB ports and Sony noise-cancelling headsets; a business centre with Dell PCs, printers and scanners; and a spa-inspired shower facility.

Free Wi-Fi is offered throughout the 700sqm lounge, while Canadian-inspired food and beverages are served, and Canadian artwork decorates the walls. The lounge is open to Air Canada Altitude Super Elite 100K, Elite 75K and Elite 50K members, as well as Star Alliance Gold members and Business Class travellers.

Craig Landry, Vice President, Marketing at Air Canada, said: “Our newest International Maple Leaf Lounge was created as an extension of the overall travel experience for our international business customers.

“Our Heathrow customers will enjoy a calm and inspiring environment in which to work or relax before their Air Canada or connecting Star Alliance flight. We are proud to showcase contemporary Canadian design, artwork and the majestic natural beauty of Canada in our Maple Leaf Lounges.”
