New EVA Air VIP Lounge Opens at LAX

EVA Air has opened a new $5 million VIP lounge in the Tom Bradley International Terminal of Los Angeles International Airport. The 8,000-square foot Los Angeles International Lounge is on the fourth floor in the north wing of the terminal and can be accessed after passing through security checkpoints. The lounge has 186 seats, Wi-Fi and a business center with individual workstations with laptop hook-ups, telephones, and photocopier and facsimile services. The lounge also has its own lavatories for guests and one section can be partitioned to give dignitaries or celebrities privacy. Passengers can choose from ethnic and local foods, including sushi and sandwiches. In addition to juices, gourmet coffee, tea and soft drinks, the lounge also has a full bar.

The new lounge is available to the airline's Premium Laurel Class and Silver, Gold and Diamond Card frequent-flyer passengers. EVA's Super Business and Super First Class passengers are also entitled to lounge access. Gold and Diamond Card members of EVA's Evergreen Club frequent flyer program can bring one guest into the lounge. In addition, Evergreen Club members at these levels and Silver Card members can redeem 5,000 mileage points for one guest or family member.

EVA shares its new lounge with eight other non-affiliated airlines, including Air India, Air Tahiti Nui, China Airlines, China Eastern, El Al Airlines, Malaysia Airlines, Mexicana Airlines and Philippine Airlines. Visit [www.evaair.com].
