Aéroports de Montréal has recently opened a new VIP lounge where waiting passengers can relax in a spacious and comfortable environment that offers exclusive services.
The architectural firm of Jodoin Lamarre Pratte et associés was in charge of the design, the drawings and specifications for the lounge, all within a tight budget and schedule, and in a section of the airport that presented major logistic constraints.
The 375 metre room (1230 feet) is bathed in plenty of daylight and is finished in neutral tones (cognac, maroon and white) and a variety of textures (wood, leather and metal) dispersed among various areas: sitting area, bar, and service areas. The atmosphere is mainly defined by the lighting set-up and the spaciousness.
The lounge is available free of charge for first class and business class passengers from member companies. Other passengers must pay an entrance fee.
