On Thursday (June 20, 2024), Air France announced the opening of their new lounge at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). The lounge is located in the Tom Bradley terminal, and is open to  Air France La Première, Business and Flying Blue Elite Plus customers.  Close to the boarding gates, the lounge offers a calm and cozy space, which is ideal for relaxing, having a bite, and enjoying Air France’s signature French travel experience before or between flights.  The nearly 12,000 square-foot space can accommodate 172 guests, and is also open to eligible KLM and SkyTeam partner airlines’ customers.  Daily operating hours are from 9:00 a.m. to 11:30 p.m.


Designed in partnership with Air France and the agency SGK Brandimage, the elegant and sophisticated lounge has different areas to suit the needs of all travelers.  The space features Air France’s signature colors with shades of blue, luminous whites and touches of red, and features carefully curated furniture by famous French designers such as the ‘Ester’ chairs by Patrick Jouin, the ‘Ribbon’ armchairs by Pierre Paulin, the coffee table by Charlotte Perriand and lighting designs by Margaux Keller.


A dining area in the heart of the lounge showcases French cuisine, with an aesthetic reminiscent in the style of Parisian brasseries, and features individual seating, a large communal table, and private alcoves.  Changing throughout the day, the gastronomic offer features hot or cold options, sweet or savory dishes, and vegetarian options.  Some signature dishes include Monkfish Provençale, Boeuf Bourguignon, braised chicken and more.  An in-house chef also prepares dishes on request in an open kitchen, such as pan-fried prawns, cassoulet with duck confit, and more.  In an effort to provide a more sustainable dining experience, Air France emphasizes local and seasonal produce, and focuses on limiting food waste through selective sorting and recycling. 


Visitors to the bar can enjoy a wide selection of French wines and champagnes, spirits and local beers, along with cocktails and mocktails prepared by a bartender.  The bar area offers ample comfortable seating, more private areas with comfortable booth seating, as well as armchairs.  Additionally, water fountains and drink dispensers are available to reduce the consumption of single-use plastics.


Air France’s new LAX lounge also features a spa treatment area by Clarins, which has partnered with Air France for nearly 20 years.  Guests are welcomed by Clarins teams in two cozy cabins, offering visitors a choice of three free facial treatments, including ‘anti-jetlag’, instant detox, and ‘illuminating eye-care’ options.  Each treatment combines Clarins’ massage techniques with products rich in plant extracts, guaranteeing total well-being for guests.  The spa area will be open from September 2024, daily from 11:00 a.m. to 8:30 p.m.  Reservations can be made at the Clarins treatment areas reception desk, and La Première can also book treatment by calling their dedicated number.


Air France La Première guests also have an exclusive private area, designed to complement the carrier’s La Première suites onboard, with a comfortable, chic, and made-to-measure layout.  This exclusive space offers a privileged view of the runways, can seat 12 guests, and also has its own dining area.  Flying Blue Ultimate customers also have access to an exclusive alcove reserved entirely for them, which is located next to the lounge’s main dining area, and features large, comfortable armchairs.

 

Located out of sight, the lounge also features another area dedicated to rest and relaxation.  There is also a work area with large ergonomic armchairs, along with a closed-off cabin for making call, to ensure peace and quiet in the lounge.  For easier access, the reception area is equipped with eligibility kiosks, and the lounge features free Wi-Fi and numerous electric and ISB sockets throughout as well as the ability to access digital press via the Air France Play app.  Finally, shower cubicles are available throughout the day, for guests wishing to freshen up.
