Air Canada reopens 4 more Maple Leaf Lounges

Air Canada has opened the doors once again to four additional Maple Leaf Lounges — Edmonton, Ottawa, Montréal Transborder, and Los Angeles — marking the second Maple Leaf Lounge to reopen outside Canada.

Eligible customers are invited to enjoy the lounge before their journey.  Like those lounges that have already reopened, strict biosafety measures are being followed including mandatory face masks for customers and employees, enhanced cleaning, reduced capacity and increased directional and safety-related signage.  As well, reading materials are available through PressReader. Pre-packaged food and refreshments are available at all four, while the Montréal Transborder lounge is also offering the
@la table service that provides customers a menu of options they can easily order to their seat from a smartphone.

Some of Air Canada’s Maple Leaf Lounges now require proof of vaccination to allow entry. Check out the requirements of the lounges here to avoid the unexpected. Each lounge’s requirements differ, so please select the specific location from the drop-down menu on the right when you click the link above.
