Today, Air Canada unveiled its newest Maple Leaf Lounge located inside the St. John’s International Airport (YYT). The lounge is situated at the recently expanded departures areas of the terminal building. This new Maple Leaf Lounge offers significantly more space, upgraded amenities, including a business centre, its own washroom, a wider assortment of refreshments than the previous St. John’s airport lounge. Additionally, the lounge offers a panoramic view of the iconic historical site of Signal Hill and the ocean, giving the Air Canada customers a beautiful view of St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador.
It is truly an honour that I was invited by Air Canada to attend this special grand opening media event and to be able to take a tour of this brand new Maple Leaf Lounge.
During this special media event, I took lots of photos and videos to share with you. Let’s take the tour together and share this experience to see what’s this Maple Leaf Lounge looks like.
FIRST LOOK: The moment I walked into this Maple Leaf Lounge, I felt very welcoming! It’s chic, modern, artsy and very comfortable. The view from the airport overlooking the ocean and the historic Signal Hill was a treat to watch. There are plenty of sitting areas to choose from. There are a wide range of refreshments and food to indulge in. The business centre is very up-to-date with technologies and equipment to get work done.
In particular, I appreciate all the power outlets throughout the entire space. Whether you need to plug your laptop to do work or Influencers such as myself to charge my cameras and Smartphones, it’s very thoughtful for the Air Canada team to provide outlet spots everywhere. Attention to detail is appreciative for an enjoyable experience.
In particular, during the presentation, I learned that Air Canada is a big supporter of showcasing Canadian talent and their artwork. Throughout this whole lounge, we can see different artwork that were made from local artists. In fact, the artists were present at the presentation to tell the media their theme and artistic inspiration of their art work. The lounge has a number of art pieces that speaks and showcase about Newfoundlanders. In particular, I really like the artwork of the fisherman using the nets to catch the fishes. We don’t get to see his face, but the imagery is powerful, it reflects the lifestyle, the tradition and the heritage of the local people living in Newfoundland and Labrador.
