Air France opens refurbished Bordeaux lounge

15 Jun 2015 by Clement Huang

Air France has opened a new and improve lounge at Bordeaux-Merignac Airport, France's ninth largest airport.

Located in Hall B, the facility is positioned near the boarding gates.

Furnishings and décor were developed by Brandimage, the same agency that designed the airline's flagship business class lounge at Paris CDG. Similar themes of bright colour, and light wood furnishings are present in the Bordeaux lounge.

The new lounge facility is larger than before, boasting a size of 180sqm compared to 126sqm previously. With a total of 60 seats, it comes with dedicated relaxation and work areas, as well as complimentary wifi.

The new culinary offering is improved, though still fairly limited, with biscuits served in the morning, and mini sandwiches and canapés available during noon and in the evening. There will also be a designated teatime, which comes with cakes and sweet biscuits.

Standard hot and cold beverages will be available throughout the day, a selection of Bordeaux wines will be offered in the afternoon. Air France is partnering with the Interprofessional Council of Bordeaux Wines to rotate and renew its selection over the months and seasons.  

Finally, lounge guests will be able to gain access to a wide range of reading material on the Air France press app via their smartphones and tablets, upon connecting to the facility’s wifi. 

The refurbished lounge is open to both premium domestic passengers and those with connections to an international flight from the carrier’s hub at Paris-Charles de Gaulle. Access to the Air France lounge is reserved for the airline’s Flying Blue Platinum and Gold customers, along with Skyteam Elite Plus cardholders. Passengers travelling on Air France’s La Premiere and business class are afforded entry too.
