[LOUNGE] Benefits of Lounge Access

In Canada, there are 3 main lounges that you can access at the airports: Maple Leaf LoungePlaza Premium Lounge and Priority Pass. I often get questions on what are the benefits of having lounge access. Here is a list of some of the benefits that you may receive in a lounge that is otherwise not available at a regular gate:

Personal Assistance

The airline employees in the lounges can assist you with your same-day travel needs (e.g. seat assignment). This is especially helpful if you have a flight delay or cancellation. The staff in the lounges can assist you with rebooking, so that you do not have to wait in the long customers service line-ups.

Comfort Seating

The seating area in the lounges are suppose to be ergonomically correct furnitures to maximize the comfort of the passengers.

Cell-Free Quiet Zone

Cell phone usage is not permitted in some lounges, so less disruptions while you rest.

Complimentary Food and Beverages

Who does not like free food and drinks?

Free Publications

Lounges are usually pretty stocked with popular magazines and newspapers.

Business Centres

This is especially useful for business travellers who need access to workstations, printers, copiers and faxes. There may also be conference rooms for private meetings.

High Speed Internet and Wireless

Most airports already have free Wi-Fi already. But it in case it doesn’t, you can use the Internet in the lounges.

Showers, Beds

These features can be especially useful if you are stuck in an airport for a long period of time.
