Two new lounges have opened under the Escape brand at Sacramento International Airport — one in each of the California airport’s two terminals.
“Guests entering the lounge will receive unlimited amenities that include hot and cold food and beverages, comfortable and relaxing seating with plenty of power outlets, high-speed wifi, local and national newspapers and up-to-the-second flight information,” according to the company’s website.
The food menu was created by chefs from Hawks Provisions and Public House, a gastropub located in the California capital.
The Sacramento Bee reports that the lounges reflect airport management’s desire to make the terminal experience more fun and interesting for travellers.
“We’re looking to delight our passengers,” said Sacramento airport executive Cindy Nichol. “The airport will have a strong sense of place. That is part of our vision – to keep up with the times and offer things that are going to intrigue people.”
Walk-up admission to the lounge will cost $45; a $5 discount is offered for booking in advance online. As part of the American Express Global Lounge Collection, the lounges offer Amex Platinum Card members complimentary access, along with two guests.
The Escape Lounges brand is owned by Manchester Airports Group (MAG), with facilities at airports including Manchester, Stansted, East Midlands, Oakland, Minneapolis St Paul.
