Alaska Airlines announces major investment in Bay Area
Alaska Airlines today unveiled plans to build a new 8,500-square-foot top floor lounge at San Francisco International Airport (SFO). Located in Terminal 2, guests will be treated to the highest viewpoint of any other domestic lounge at SFO with stunning sights of the Bay and runway. Expected to open in 2020, the Alaska Airlines SFO lounge is the company’s first in Terminal 2 and is part of a multi-year commitment to invest in new and existing lounges with guests’ every comfort in mind.
“We are thrilled to announce this landmark investment in the Bay Area that will provide guests flying through SFO with our modern and comfortable lounge experience,” said Annabel Chang, Alaska Airlines’ vice president of the Bay Area. “SFO is our second largest hub with an average of 150,000 passengers flying on a daily basis, and we want to ensure airport visitors can rest, relax and enjoy our wide array of lounge offerings.”
Alaska Airlines opened its first East Coast lounge in April 2018 at JFK International Airport, and the new flagship 15,800-square-foot lounge at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport is expected to open in June. In addition to opening a new lounge in SFO, Alaska is revitalizing the look-and-feel and upgrading the amenities of its lounges in Portland, Anchorage, Los Angeles and the Seattle. Exciting changes are underway, and guests can soon expect new furniture and finishes, expanded seating and upgraded amenities, including a wide variety of food and beverage offerings.
