A luxury lounge with views of San Francisco Bay will welcome premier travellers flying through San Francisco International Airport with Alaska Airlines next year, the airline announced.
The 8,500-square-foot Alaska Lounge will be located on the top floor of the airport’s Terminal 2 — Alaska Airlines’ first lounge in this terminal — and feature a barista station serving Starbucks coffee, afternoon tapas, made-to-order meals, and West Coast wines and local microbrewed beers on draft.
Other amenities will include high-speed wifi, a fireplace seating area, and concierge service.
“SFO is our second largest hub with an average of 150,000 passengers flying on a daily basis, and we want to ensure airport visitors can rest, relax and enjoy our wide array of lounge offerings,” said Annabel Chang, Alaska Airlines’ vice president of the Bay Area.
Officials touted the lounge’s regional theme and “elevated amenities” that are in line with Alaska Airlines’ new JFK lounge (opened in April 2018) and the flagship lounge at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport slated to debut in June 2019. The airline also is upgrading its existing lounges in Portland, Anchorage, Los Angeles, and Seattle.
