Star Alliance member Air New Zealand has been appointed to develop and manage the alliance’s new lounge at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), which is part of the expansion of the Tom Bradley International Terminal.

Inspired by a contemporary interpretation of modernist LA architecture of the 1950s and 1960s, the new LAX lounge will have two distinct areas, one for the exclusive use of customers travelling in first class and a larger section for business class and Star Alliance gold passengers.

A unique feature is the open-air terrace where guests can relax beside a fireplace by night, or by a water feature while enjoying views to the Hollywood hills.

Construction of the lounge is expected to be completed in July 2013. Customers will be able to make use of the facility later in the year, once the terminal extension has been completed and the existing Star Alliance Lounge (opened in 2007) has been closed.

In total, eight Star Alliance member carriers operate out of the Tom Bradley Terminal – ANA, Asiana Airlines, EVA Air, Lufthansa, Singapore Airlines, SWISS, THAI and Turkish Airlines. Air New Zealand plans to move to the terminal in mid-2014, at which stage its Koru Lounge in Terminal 2 will close.
