Airport Lounge Development (ALD) has opened The Club JAX at Jacksonville International Airport in Florida, US.

The lounge will provide travellers with new food and beverage options and facilities, including showers.

Located in Jacksonville Airport’s Main Concourse, the 3,000ft² lounge provides seating for up to 52 airport guests.

It will feature floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the runway and provide a view of the daily ‘air show’ from the 125th Fighter Wing of the Florida Air National Guard.

The Club JAX will feature photography of Jacksonville landmarks captured by local artist Mark Krancer.

Similar to all other ALD lounges, The Club JAX also comprises six signature zones where guests can tailor their experience around their unique needs.

The ‘relax’ zone offers comfortable club-chair seating and ottomans with reading lamps and power, while the ‘productivity’ zone includes a desk-height counter, ergonomic task chairs, and electrical outlets and USB ports.

The facility includes a ‘kids’ zone, where children can enjoy dedicated television programming and play on iPads.

A ‘replenish’ zone offers a dining area with premium food and beverages from the lounge’s seasonal hot and cold buffet, as well as all-day snack items, while a ‘refresh’ zone provides two private restrooms and a private spa-inspired shower.

The lounge also includes a bar where guests can enjoy complimentary cocktails and premium spirits, as well as refreshing, non-alcoholic options.

“The Club JAX will provide Jacksonville travellers a premium lounge experience, regardless of their airline.”

ALD senior vice-president Nancy Knipp said: “At ALD, we are excited to expand our global lounge offerings in Florida beyond our two locations at Orlando International Airport, with The Club JAX as our sixteenth US lounge to open.

“The Club JAX will provide Jacksonville travellers a premium lounge experience, regardless of their airline or class of ticket.”

The Club JAX is part of a network of new or planned lounges, which include The Club LAS at Las Vegas’ McCarran International Airport and Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport.

The lounge is available to travellers with Priority Pass, LoungeKey and Lounge Club membership, as well as other JAX travellers through the purchase of a day pass.
