Air France recently presented its entire brand new Business lounge at Paris-Charles de Gaulle Airport, after having revealed the first part last January and having already welcomed more than 200,000 customers.
The new Business lounge is located in Hall L of Terminal 2E.
With a total surface area of 3,200 square m. and a capacity of 540 seats, the completely redesigned lounge offers several new features for optimum comfort: “Le Balcon”, an exclusive bar space; an elegant cocktail menu; a wellness area; a Kids area to entertain children before their trip; and the “Gourmet Table” a catering area where a chef prepares the dish of the day in front of customers.
When arriving in the lounge, travelers can easily find their way around thanks to an interactive plan at the entrance. They can browse all the services available, depending on how much time they have before their flights.
Located at the heart of the new Air France Business lounge, “Le Balcon” is set against the runways in a unique architecture, forming a curved structure sheltered under an immense golden mirrored ceiling.
The space includes a central bar and a succession of outlying theatrical box seats where passengers can relax and enjoy the comfort prior to their flight.
The bar area, a 160-square-meter space, is a creation of French designer Mathieu Lehanneur.
At the heart of “Le Balcon”, every evening from 19:00 to 21:00, Air France offers a selection of cocktails specially designed by the head bartender of the Hotel Lancaster in Paris.
The lounge also highlights rich and varied gourmet cuisine, including the “Gourmet Table” dining area, a self-service offer and a selection of wines and champagnes designed by Paolo Basso, world’s best sommelier in 2013.
The lounge’s wellness area, the largest of all the Air France lounges, with more than 550 square meters, provides guests with a relaxation area to relax comfortably in sun loungers, a detox bar, two private saunas and large luxury showers.
The lounge also includes several other areas for a tailor-made experience, including the “Le Club” privatized space, the Air France Shopping display cabinets, two large co-working tables and two press kiosks.
On the Air France app, customers can access all the information they need on the lounges in the new “Lounge” section.
