Air Canada has officially opened its new International Maple Leaf Lounge at London Heathrow Airport's new Terminal 2, also known as The Queen's Terminal.

Located at Star Alliance's largest airport hub and Air Canada's largest international station, International Maple Leaf Lounge allows eligible customers to rest, refuel or refresh before boarding their flight.

The new 700m² lounge was designed by Bennett Lo Toronto's firm dialogue 38, which also designed Air Canada's Maple Leaf Lounge in Frankfurt, Germany.

Air Canada marketing vice-president Craig Landry said: "Our newest International Maple Leaf Lounge was created as an extension of the overall travel experience for our international business customers."
