Korean Air, America's largest Asian airline, has unveiled its new lounge for Prestige and First Class passengers and the 20 SkyTeam customers at Los Angeles Airport (LAX), one of the biggest gateways in the west coast of the United States (US).
Located on the fifth floor in the Tom Bradley International Terminal of LAX, the new lounge was designed by Gensler, a global integrated architecture and design firm, which has contributed many innovative design projects for airport facilities around the world.
Measuring 1,320 sq m, the 305-seat lounge can accommodate 135 more passengers. Furthermore, the lounge offers exclusive services for passengers, including four private lounge rooms and shower booths, a lounge balcony offering panoramic views of the entire terminal, and a luggage depository area.
Korean Air will add a second A380 flight to New York next month, making it the only airline serving both US coasts with double daily A380 flights from Asia.
Korean Air's daily service to Houston starts next month.
