On August 11th, Air France officially opened its fully redesigned lounge at Montreal's Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport.
In association with the Plaza Premium Group, the airline now offers its Business and Flying Blue Elite Plus customers a 'vast, elegant and welcoming space, promoting French-style hospitality to enhance their travel experience', according to Air France.
Located in the international section of the terminal, this 490 sq. m. lounge has a seating capacity of 149. It features large bay windows offering a view of the runways, the airline's aircraft and one of the slopes of Mount Royal overlooking the city of Montreal.
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.
At the entrance, customers are welcomed by Plaza Premium Group agents. Automatic eligibility kiosks are also available for greater fluidity.
A shared work area is also available in the main lounge, where free Wi-Fi and USB sockets are also available to all customers.
Air France Lounge Features French Cuisine
At the heart of the lounge, a vast area offers catering centred around French cuisine. A self-service buffet offers hot and cold dishes as well as vegetarian and gluten-free dishes. A large bar also offers a wide selection of French wines and champagnes.
The Air France lounge in Montreal 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 also purchase lounge access subject to availability.
