PARIS, France . – Star Alliance has opened a First and Business Class Lounge at Paris Charles de Gaulle (CDG) Airport. The 850 square metre facility is the largest of its kind in Terminal 1 and offers space for more than 200 customers.

“The Star Alliance Lounge at Charles de Gaulle Terminal 1 is one more example of how collaboration in the alliance can lead to improvements for the customer while at the same time allow our member carriers to reduce their costs,” said Jaan Albrecht, CEO, Star Alliance.
The lounge is located at the highest point of the terminal building – levels 10 and 11 - and provides a panoramic view of the airport and the city of Paris. It is open daily from 05.00 to 23.00 hours and offers a relaxed atmosphere on two levels. The upper level provides space for 33 First Class customers while the main level features an area that seats up to 180 for Business Class and Star Alliance Gold customers, and a quiet zone for passengers to relax in lounge chairs and cocoon-like armchairs.

Business Centre work stations are located on both levels and complimentary Wi-Fi Internet access is available throughout the lounge. Shower facilities, state-of-the-art television screens and a wide selection of international newspapers and magazines round off the service.
The lounge at Charles de Gaulle Airport, Terminal 1 is among three other Star Alliance lounges, which are located at London Heathrow Terminal 1, at Los Angeles’ Tom Bradley International Terminal and at Nagoya’s Centrair Airport.
The Star Alliance Lounge at Charles de Gaulle is an integral part of the “Move under one Roof” strategy which will see the majority of Star Alliance member carriers serving this airport move to Terminal 1 by the end of 2009.
