Pittsburgh International Airport in US, managed by Allegheny County Airport Authority, has opened a new common use lounge to offer enhanced travel services to both domestic and international passengers.

The new Club lounge, which will be operated by Airport Lounge Development (ALD), can be used by all passengers.

Allegheny County Airport Authority CEO Christina Cassotis said: “Pittsburgh travellers have been asking for these features – particularly additional places to relax or work before their flights – for several years.

“We are pleased to provide these new amenities and update our facilities to better accommodate our new service and growth in passengers.”

Currently, the new Club lounge operates in a temporary location in Concourse C at Pittsburgh International Airport and is positioned between gates C54 and C56. It can be accessed from the airport concourses A, B and D.

The temporary location will remain open for customers until the 1,800ft2 permanent lounge, which will be separately located across from gate C52, is completed.

"We are pleased to provide these new amenities and update our facilities to better accommodate our new service and growth in passengers."

Scheduled for completion in mid-2017, the permanent lounge will be built between Bar Symon and Kidsport at the airport.

The temporary lounge currently offers accommodation for 35 guests and is divided into three zones to address specific passenger requirements.

The Club lounge's Replenish Zone offers a wide range of food and beverage options, the Productivity Zone provides workstations with computers and printers, and the Relaxation Zone enables travellers to rest before their journey.

Passengers will be able to buy Club passes online or at the lounge for $40.
