Star Alliance has officially completed the refurbishment of its seventh branded lounge, first opened 11 years ago at Paris Charles de Gaulle (CDG) Airport. At 980 square metres the lounge offers seating for just over 220 guests and takes influence from Parisian design and architecture. Muted greys, parquet flooring and stylish seating creates another residential approach, reflecting the current trend to soften and luxuriate the passenger experience.
As usual, the lounge is available to First and Business Class customers as well as Star Alliance Gold members travelling from Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport – Terminal 1 on the following Star Alliance member airlines: Aegean, Air China, ANA, Asiana, Egyptair, Eva Air, Singapore Airlines, Thai Airways, Turkish Airlines and United.
The lounge, which was first opened in 2008, is located behind passport control at the highest point of the terminal building – levels 10 and 11 – and provides a panoramic view of the airport from the upper floor. Open daily from 05.30am to 10.00pm depending on the flight schedule, the refurbished lounge offers a range of facilities catering to the diverse needs of today’s frequent travellers.
Perhaps the most impressive feature (especially during summer) is the exclusive rooftop garden, which gives guests the opportunity to enjoy an outdoor area before their flight.
As well as being offered a wide range of complimentary drinks and can choose from a selection of international hot and cold menus featuring some typically French delights. The lounge also offers an exclusive zone for customers travelling in First Class on Air China, Singapore Airlines and Thai Airways operated flights.
Comfortable and quiet work spaces are located on both levels and complimentary Wi-Fi Internet access is available throughout the lounge. Specific attention was paid to a significant increase of power sockets to make sure guest can stay connected at all times.
