First Maple Leaf Lounge by Air Canada opens at San Francisco International Airport

At San Francisco International Airport (SFO), Air Canada has inaugurated its brand-new Maple Leaf Lounge, the airline’s 28th lounge overall and third in the United States. The contemporary and opulent retreat, located in Terminal 2, offers a variety of premium amenities, food, and beverages, as well as Air Canada’s first outdoor lounge terrace, making the travel experience for qualified customers even more comfortable and practical before their flights to Canada and beyond.

“We’re thrilled to bring the Maple Leaf Lounge experience to San Francisco International Airport, giving our Bay Area customers a way to enjoy Air Canada’s award-winning product and glowing-hearted hospitality from the moment they arrive,” said Jacqueline Harkness, Managing Director, Products and Services at Air Canada. It’s another step in our investment strategy to become San Francisco’s preferred foreign travel option.

The newest Lounge has an enormous outdoor terrace with views of the aircraft and runway in addition to the variety of services and amenities the airline’s Maple Leaf Lounges are known for. For passengers flying from California to Canada or via three of the airline’s major hubs—Toronto Pearson, Montreal Trudeau, and Vancouver International Airports—to Europe, Asia, or Australia, the 165-seat, 8168 square foot (761 square metre) airport retreat enhances the flight and airport experience.

The new Maple Leaf Lounge at SFO will honour its California location through its design and decor as well as the food and beverage options offered, which showcase regional producers and tastes. Along with a variety of California wines, beer from Sierra Nevada Brewing Company and Anchor Brewing—America’s first craft brewery—will be available with special seafood dishes, including the renowned San Francisco fish stew cioppino.

Added information is as follows:

The new area is the newest addition to Air Canada’s expanding network of lounges.

With a dedicated Air Canada customer service desk and an access policy that is in line with Air Canada’s Maple Leaf Lounges, Air Canada will be uniquely co-located within the United Club in this new location.
