Air France has opened its renovated lounge at Washington Dulles International Airport in the US.

Located near the boarding gates, the lounge covers an area of 615m² over two levels and is designed to accommodate up to 155 guests.

It will be open to first and business class passengers of Air France and KLM.

SkyTeam Elite Plus members travelling on an international SkyTeam flight will also have access to the facility.

The lounge features a new bar and a revamped dining area, which has been specially designed for short overnight flights.

The bar will serve customers a selection of wines, champagnes and spirits. For the first time, an Air France lounge will also serve cold draught beers.

A VIP area will also be available for customers travelling in the La Première cabin.

The lobby of the refurbished lounge is equipped with co-working space and new eligibility kiosks.

Air France said in a statement: “Designed in the spirit of a Parisian brasserie, new furnishings and circular benches have been custom-designed to provide conviviality and comfort.

“The second level offers customers a genuinely cosy environment. In a relaxing light-filled atmosphere, where light screens perfectly mimic sunlight and the colour of the sky, customers can relax comfortably in chaises longues or other seating of their choice.”

Eligible passengers will get free access to Wi-Fi and electrical/USB outlets.
