Air Canada has unveiled the Maple Leaf Lounge Express in the Toronto Pearson International Airport Terminal 1-transborder departure area.
The lounge is close to departure gates F84-F99 and joins the existing Maple Leaf Lounge as the second premium lounge product for customers departing to the US from the airport.
It will be accessible to business class customers or those with select altitude status, as well as Star Alliance Gold members departing on an Air Canada or United Airlines flight.
Air Canada Product vice-president Andrew Yiu said: “This unique space has been created to enhance the overall travel experience of our premium customers and represents a commitment to our transborder product.
“This all-new lounge is just steps from the Air Canada commuter gates, making it easy to enjoy comfort on the go before flying to the US.”
The Maple Leaf Lounge Express has seating for 50 customers and features a self-serve bar.
Recently, a new commuter facility developed by the Greater Toronto Airports Authority was opened at Toronto Pearson Terminal 1.
Air Canada offers access to 23 Maple Leaf Lounges across the world to eligible customers, including 17 at Canadian airports, and the Signature Suite at Toronto Pearson global hub.
Customers can also access lounges at New York-LaGuardia, New York-Newark, Los Angeles, London Heathrow and Frankfurt.
In December last year, Air Canada opened its newest Maple Leaf Lounge in the Terminal B Eastern Concourse at LaGuardia Airport in the US.
