YVR, Vancouver’s international airport, today announced the opening of a new lounge for passengers travelling or connecting with Aeroméxico, Air France, China Airlines, China Eastern, China Southern, Delta Air Lines, KLM Royal Dutch Airlines, Korean Air and Xiamen Airlines.

The new lounge in Vancouver is SkyTeam’s seventh branded lounge with others located in major hubs around the world including Dubai, London Heathrow, Hong Kong, Sydney, Istanbul and Beijing.



Using the lounge means pampering yourself, in a peaceful, bright setting overlooking the airport lands. The lounge is more than just a quiet place to wait. According to YVR, it offers:

−Buffet that provides a taste of what Vancouver has to offer, including hot and cold meals created using fresh local produce and West Coast smoked salmon

− Noodle bar for made-to-order meals cooked by an in-house chef

−Wide range of beverages, including beers from local microbreweries and a selection of wines from local vineyards

−Seating for 126 guests across two wings where customers can catch up with work in a dedicated business area or watch the latest news in a separate TV room

−Showers with all the amenities needed to freshen up pre-flight

SkyTeam’s Vancouver lounge is available to Elite Plus, first- and business-class customers. So whether it’s a one-time splurge, a chance to cash out your customer loyalty miles, or your regular method of travel, YVR says this your chance to pamper yourself as you wait for a plane.

Scott Norris, vice president resident of Commercial Development, Vancouver Airport Authority. “We are proud that SkyTeam chose YVR as their first North American location to showcase their lounge product.
