United has unveiled its newly renovated lounge at Los Angeles International airport (LAX).

Part of a US$573 million project to renovate all customer-facing spaces at Terminals 7 and 8, the LAX United Club lounge is now one of the airline’s largest, spread across 1,900 sqm.

Features include a larger kitchen and bar area, lounge space, work seating and an outdoor terrace offering views of the Hollywood Hills and Los Angeles skyline.

Julia Haywood, United’s executive vice president and chief commercial officer, said: “LAX is a key piece of our global route network, and we’re incredibly proud that it will house one of our finest United Clubs.

“Aesthetically, it’s unlike any other, with panoramic views of the city and an outdoor terrace. These unique amenities – along with fresh food, wine menus, craft cocktails and, most importantly, exceptional service and hospitality for our customers – will elevate the entire experience to something that will truly impress and delight visitors.”

In the last year United has opened a new economy lobby, baggage claim areas and a new security checkpoint in partnership with the Transportation Safety Administration (TSA), featuring five automated screening lanes.
