Star Alliance has today opened its second lounge at Paris Charles de Gaulle airport.

The 1,300 sqm lounge is located airside after immigration and security in the newest part of Terminal 1.

The lounge is open to first and business class passengers as well as Star Alliance Gold status customers on member airline flights departing from gates 10-38. Eligible United Club and Air Canada Maple Leaf Club members can also gain entry to the lounge.

At the moment, 20 Star Alliance member carriers operate from the airport, offering 464 weekly departures to 34 destinations in 22 countries.

The space, designed by architecture firm Gensler, can accommodate over 300 guests and has a glass facade running across its length with runway views.

To pay homage to the French capital there are wall mouldings and archways decorated with black and white photos of the Eiffel Tower, and the lounge has been furnished with selected pieces by French artists.

Food and beverage areas include a welcome bar, offering a range of beverages, an immersive wine bar, featuring master wine maker Gerard Bertrand and their wines from the south of France, and a tea salon offering an assortment from around the world.

Further areas include an illuminated winter garden, a spacious outdoor courtyard, while amenities include shower suites, private work cabins and secluded nooks throughout the space.

Star Alliance CEO Theo Panagiotoulias said:

“Star Alliance stands for elevating the experience of its member airline passengers, and airport lounges play a vital role. We’re very proud to present our new Paris lounge, which is not only a delight to experience but also thoughtfully designed to meet the needs of the modern frequent traveller.”

Star Alliance’s first lounge, located prior to security on level 10, was refurbished in 2019 and will now serve passengers departing on intra-Schengen flights from gates 50 to 78, as well as guests from various lounge access programs departing from all gates.

Star Alliance now has seven branded lounges worldwide, including at Amsterdam Schiphol, Rome Fiumicino, Ezeiza International in Buenos Aires, Rio de Janeiro and Los Angeles International airports.
