Air France has unveiled its refurbished and expanded lounge at San Francisco International airport.

The facility by gate A in the airport’s international terminal is now 90sqm larger than previously, with a total of 117 seats across the 565sqm lounge.

The space has been redesigned in collaboration with SGK Brandimage, with features including furniture by French designers including Little Tulip chairs by Pierre Paulin, Ester bar stools by Patrick Jouin and Softshell chairs by the Bouroullec brothers.

As with the carrier’s recent lounge renovations in Munich and Montreal, decor has been inspired by the carrier’s signature colours of blue, white and red, with the use of materials including wood and leather.

Facilities include a manned bar in blue-stained wood, a large communal “table d’hote”, a self-service buffet with dishes including croque-monsieur and boeuf bourguignon, and water fountains to limit single-use plastic.

Customers flying in Air France’s La Premiere first class cabin can also access an exclusive area of the lounge with its own restaurant and direct access to the bar, and there is also a space reserved for Flying Blue Ultimate members near the entrance to the lounge.

Other amenities include showers, free wifi, USB posts near seating, and access to digital newspapers and magazine through the Air France app.

The lounge is open daily between 1000 and 2030, for La Première, business class and Flying Blue Elite Plus customers of Air France, KLM and its Skyteam partner airlines.

Air France currently operates up to 12 weekly flights between Paris CDG and San Francisco.
