United has unveiled its redesigned Polaris Lounge at Newark Liberty International airport, as the carrier continues to roll out its Polaris concept across its lounges and business class cabins.
Business Traveller is at today’s unveiling (and add more details to this article in due course), with the lounge officially opening to guests from June 4.
The redesigned space features 15 different types of seating across a total of 455 seats, with 570 power outlets and 450 USB ports.
There are four private phone rooms, ten private daybeds with Saks Fifth Avenue bedding, ten shower suites, a personal valet service for steam cleaning of garments, a private dining area with table service for up to 48 guests, as well as a bistro buffet and bar with cocktail menu.
According to the press release “When visitors first enter, they will be greeted with a vibrant lighting fixture created by Brooklyn-based art and design laboratory Richard Clarkson Studio that is meant to mimic the constellations of the 12 zodiac signs”.
The lounge is located in Terminal C at the Newark Liberty International, between gates C102 and C120, and joins the recently opened Polaris Lounge at San Francisco, with facilities at Houston and LA to follow later this year.
United unveiled the Polaris premium concept in 2016, encompassing the carrier’s lounges and inflight business class product. The airline says it plans to add one aircraft featuring the new United Polaris seat every ten days on average, through to 2020.
