A $4 million Escape Lounge is now open in Terminal 2 of Ontario International Airport in California, with another scheduled to open later in 2019 in Terminal 4, Airline Geeks reports.
The 2,800-square-foot lounges are accessible to all travellers passing through the airport, which serves the greater Los Angeles area. The lounges are part of the American Express Global Lounge Collection, so access is free for Amex Platinum Card holders. Day passes are as low as $40 if purchased in advance.
Lounge amenities include hot and cold food by Henry Gonzales, executive chef of Spaggi’s of Upland, Calif., and high-speed wifi.
The lounge is expected to serve China Airlines passengers; the airline began daily service between Ontario and Taipei, Taiwan last year. Other airlines at Ontario include Alaska, Delta, Frontier, JetBlue, United, and Volaris.
Since ownership was changed to the City of Ontario from Los Angeles World Airports, the airport authority has been investing in dining and retail upgrades, including the addition of the luxury lounges. Escape Lounges are also currently open in Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport, Oakland International Airport, Reno-Tahoe International Airport, Hartford’s Bradley International Airport, and South Carolina’s Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport.
