It features popular amenities, including refreshments and a business centre, so eligible customers can relax or make the most of their workday before their flight.

"Showcasing contemporary design and artwork, the lounge is decorated with maple wood screen walls, Canadian-made furnishings, yet it also reflects the unique character that is New York City.

"Customers will be warmly received and enjoy a calm environment in which to work or relax before their Air Canada flight," said Andrew Yiu, Vice President, Product at Air Canada.

With capacity for up to 126 customers in an elegant space that overlooks the concourse, the new LaGuardia Maple Leaf Lounge combines Canadian design and art with metropolitan modern style.

The 7,015-square-foot lounge features a self-serve bar, offering a wide selection of beverages, including Canadian wines and Lavazza specialty coffees, a business centre and comfortable seating with a view of the tarmac.

Business travellers planning to work on site may also take advantage of a cyber counter equipped with PCs and colour printing, complimentary Wi-Fi and access to more than 7,000 digital newspaper and magazine content via the PressReader app.

The LaGuardia Maple Leaf Lounge will operate seven days a week, and is conveniently located in the departure gate area, on Level 2 of Terminal B Eastern Concourse, steps away from Air Canada's departure gates 49, 50 and 51.
