MONTREAL — Air France’s newly redesigned lounge is now open at Montreal’s Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport.
With seating capacity for up to 149, the spacious lounge is available to Air France’s Business and Flying Blue Elite Plus passengers.
The lounge is located in the international section of the terminal and is operated in association with the Plaza Premium Group.
Air France says it worked together with Canadian companies to create most of the furniture and lighting. The lounge sports the airline’s look – shades of blue, greys and whites, with touches of red for pops of colour. A large bay window offering a view of the runways, the airline’s aircraft and one of the slopes of Mount Royal overlooking the city of Montreal.
The main lounge area offers seats and large sofas geared to relaxation, eating or working in comfort. There’s also a shared work area. Free WiFi and USB sockets are available throughout. Flying Blue Ultimate customers have access to a more private space.
In keeping with France’s legendary dedication to fine dining, the heart of the lounge offers catering centred around French cuisine. A self-service buffet offers hot and cold, savoury and sweet dishes. Vegetarian and gluten-free dishes are available too. A large bar also offers a wide selection of French wines and champagnes.
Air France has a heads up for Business class passengers flying from Montreal to Paris on the last evening flight. Starting in fall 2021, the lounge will introduce a new dedicated catering service in the ‘Night Service’ area. Passengers who would prefer to dine in the lounge, to free up time to sleep and rest on the flight, can opt for a real French-style gourmet meal, identical to that served on board, with in-seat restaurant-style service in the lounge.
The Air France lounge in Montreal is open daily from 2 – 10 p.m. for Air France and KLM customers. Access is free for Business and Flying Blue Elite Plus passengers. The airlines’ Economy and Premium Economy passengers can purchase lounge access subject to availability.
‘Air France Protect’, the airline’s award-winning health and safety protocols, ensures the strictest health measures at every stage of the trip. Air France is reminding passengers that it is compulsory to wear a surgical mask in the lounge. Hand sanitizer is also available throughout the lounge. The lounge will open with half the possible capacity, to ensure the necessary distancing for all.
This summer Air France is operating up to 17 weekly flights between Montreal-Trudeau and Paris-Charles de Gaulle, on A350 and B777 aircraft. Before travelling, Air France advises its customers to check the travel restrictions and the documents required on arrival at their destination. More information is at airfrance.traveldoc.aero.
