Air Canada Opens First Maple Leaf Lounge at SFO

Air Canada has opened its new Maple Leaf Lounge at San Francisco International Airport (SFO), the airline’s 28th lounge worldwide, and its third Maple Leaf Lounge in the U.S. The 165-seat lounge located in Terminal 2 spans 8,168 square feet.

The new Maple Leaf Lounge at SFO will pay homage to its California location both through its design and decor, and the F&B selections presented, which highlight local makers and flavors. Seafood offerings, including the San Francisco fish stew cioppino, will be on offer alongside a selection of California wines and beer from Sierra Nevada Brewing Company and Anchor Brewing—America’s first craft beer.

Additional details include F&B offerings; self-serve (hot and cold) buffet, showcasing local flavors; and a bar serving a selection of wines (including from Canada and California), in addition to local craft beers, cocktails and espresso.

The lounge, designed with San Francisco-based architectural firm Gensler, is the first of its kind with an outdoor terrace, and offers two vapor fireplaces. Additional facilities include:

  • E-Gates and biometric identification for seamless, hands-free lounge entry
  • Showers with heated towel racks
  • VIP room for up to 10 people
  • Collection of multidisciplinary art that pays homage to California and Canada

Air Canada has also re-introduced Newark Liberty International Airport to its roster of lounges with the opening of the new United Club location in Newark Terminal A. In this new location, Air Canada will be co-located within the United Club, offering a dedicated customer service desk and an access policy consistent with Air Canada’s Maple Leaf Lounges.

Air Canada's Maple Leaf lounges, including San Francisco and the new United Club in Newark Terminal A, are available to Air Canada customers who are Aeroplan 50K, 75K and Aeroplan Super Elite Status members, Star Alliance Gold members, Aeroplan premium co-brand cardholders, and customers departing on a business class ticket with Air Canada or another Star Alliance member.
