YYC to welcome WestJet's first lounge next summer

Work has begun at Calgary International Airport on WestJet’s first proprietary flagship lounge, set to welcome its first guests in late summer 2020.

Working in partnership with the Calgary Airport Authority, WestJet's new lounge will be located near Concourse B to serve guests travelling from Concourses A and B in the Domestic Terminal, and from Concourse D in the International Terminal.

"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 travellers a home within our home in Calgary," said d'Arcy Monaghan, WestJet's Vice-President, Loyalty. "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."

Designed in partnership with Gensler, world-class design and architectural firm, the lounge will “blend contemporary interior design with refined mountain living,” WestJet said in a statement. “This custom Canadian-inspired space brings together exceptional local food and beverage, along with business amenities designed to keep travellers connected.”

WestJet flagship lounge is scheduled to open in late summer 2020. Platinum, Gold and Silver WestJet Rewards members with complimentary lounge access benefits, along with guests travelling in the Business cabin, will be among the first to enjoy the new space.

More details on the lounge will be released in the coming months.
