Travellers can look forward to a new look and feel on their next visit to the Star Alliance Lounge at Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport, which has reopened following a renovation of its design and facilities.
The new look of the lounge, first opened in 2008, is inspired by Parisian design and architecture. In particular, guests can look forward to an outdoor landscaped garden designed to evoke Paris’s green areas.
Other features include quiet spaces for working located on both levels of the lounge, along with a “significant” increase in the number of power sockets available throughout the facility.
On the food and beverage front, the lounge offers a selection of complimentary drinks as well as international hot and cold menus with “some typically French delights”, according to the alliance.
Shower facilities are also available, as are a selection of TV screens, international newspapers and magazines.
“The newly renovated Star Alliance Lounge at Paris Charles de Gaulle ties in seamlessly in our strategy of making the customer journey better,” said Christian Drager, Star Alliance vice president of customer experience.
“We are delighted to be able to offer our guests travelling from or transiting through Paris now with an unparalleled hospitality experience in a well-equipped environment, where they can sit back, relax and enjoy their journey.”
Spanning 980 sqm and with seating for more than 220 guests, the lounge offers views of the airport from its perch on Levels 10 and 11 of the Terminal 1 building.
First and business class passengers, as well as Star Alliance Gold members travelling on Star Alliance member airline flights departing from Terminal 1 have access to the lounge. These include flights operated by Aegean, Air China, ANA, Asiana, EVA Air, Singapore Airlines, Thai Airways, Turkish Airlines and United Airlines.
The lounge also has a dedicated space for first class passengers travelling on Air China, Singapore Airlines and Thai Airways-operated flights.
Opening hours are from 5.30am to 10pm daily, depending on flight schedules.
Star Alliance has seven dedicated lounges around the world. This notably includes the newly opened lounge at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol (AMS), as well as facilities in Buenos Aires (EZE), Los Angeles (LAX), Nagoya (NGO), Rio de Janeiro (GIG), Rome (FCO) and Sao Paolo (GRU).
A new lounge is also scheduled to open at Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport (CAN) this year.
