The Club will offer visitors a scenic view of the airfield, specialty cocktails, and buffet services, as well as other benefits.

ALD’s signature ‘zones’ also feature in The Club, including a Replenish Zone offering premium spirits, wines and beers, and a Resting Zone, which is a dedicated quiet space for guests.

The Club Pittsburgh International also features a Refresh Zone, self-enclosed Privacy Zone, and a Cell-Free Zone.

The Productivity Zone at the lounge comprises a community workspace, ergonomic task chairs, multiple US and international electrical outlets and USB ports.

The lounge offers complimentary computer, printer and privacy seating, allowing guests to make phone calls, read or use the available Wi-Fi.
