Air Canada Unveils New Vancouver International Maple Leaf Lounge

Air Canada has unveiled its new Vancouver International Maple Leaf Lounge following an 18-month makeover and expansion. The revamped lounge offers eligible customers a stylish oasis celebrating Canadian design, artistry and craftsmanship against the backdrop of beautiful British Columbia.

Located directly opposite the priority security lanes for international departures at Air Canada‘s trans-Pacific hub, the lounge is designed by Vancouver-based Gustavson Wylie Architects Inc. It offers seating capacity for 258 customers across an elegant two-level space that showcases contemporary Canadian design and artwork including:

  • creations by Canadian artists Kendall Kendrick (Vancouver), Nicolas Ruel (Montreal) and Danielle Roy (Montreal), whose ‘A flower – a human being” collection creates a powerful imagery of urban portraits by uniting people from all walks of life with beautiful flowers
  • furnishings by Canadian designers Brent Comber (Vancouver), Birchwood Furniture (Calgary), Nienkamper (Toronto) and Mobilier Modern (Montreal)
  • a custom-crafted work table in the business zone by Live Edge Design of Duncan, BC, which was created with wood salvaged from a maple tree in the Cowichan Valley that had come to the end of its natural life.

The lounge also offers:

  • hot and cold dining options, including a feature salad by celebrated Vancouver Chef David Hawksworth, a chef’s station for individually prepared dishes, along with wines from Canada and from around the world
  • flat screen desktop computers, RICOH colour printing and scanning, and complementary wi-fi
  • spa-inspired shower rooms with rain shower heads, a Samsung TV zone, a VIP room and a quiet zone with reclining lounge seating.

As a leading global carrier, Air Canada offers premium customers access to 22 Maple Leaf Lounges worldwide including 16 lounges at Canadian airports, and lounges at New York-LaGuardia, New York-Newark, LAX, London Heathrow, Frankfurt and Paris.

Since 2015, Air Canada has strategically expanded its international network from its YVR hub, and now offers non-stop flights to a wide range of destinations, including Sydney (daily non-stop), Brisbane (daily non-stop), Hong Kong, Shanghai, Tokyo-Narita, Seoul, London and Mexico City.

Earlier this month Air Canada also announced the launch of year-round non-stop Boeing 787 ‘Dreamliner’ services between Melbourne and Vancouver from 3 June 2018. The airline will operate three Melbourne-Vancouver services a week, with flight AC038 departing at 09:40am each Tuesday, Friday and Sunday.

The introduction in 2018 of a year-round service from Australia’s second largest city will follow the completion of a seasonal service between Melbourne and Vancouver from 3 December 2017 to 4 February 2018 (the peak northern hemisphere winter period).
