Canadian carrier WestJet plans its first airport lounge, which will open in its Calgary hub. Construction began on the new lounge, near Concourse B at Calgary International Airport, “to conveniently serve guests traveling from Concourses A and B in the Domestic Terminal, and from Concourse D in the International Terminal.”

The lounge should open late summer 2020. Right now, few details are available, but the airline said the lounge will “seamlessly blend contemporary interior design with refined mountain living,” offering local food, beverages and “business amenities designed to keep travelers connected.”

The lounge will be available to Platinum, Gold and Silver members of the WestJet Rewards program, plus those travelling in the carrier’s business-class cabin.

“As WestJet continues its accelerated journey to becoming a global network carrier our new flagship lounge in Calgary will give top-tier WestJet Rewards members, business cabin guests and select partner travelers a home within our home in Calgary,” said d’Arcy Monaghan, vice president, loyalty, WestJet. “This lounge will showcase WestJet’s award-winning hospitality, refined style, elevated products and premium experience our guests have been enjoying with the launch of our new Dreamliner.”
