Air Canada is the latest airline to move into London's Heathrow Terminal 2 – the new home for Star Alliance – and it's opened a new Maple Leaf Lounge as well.
It's one of what will eventually be four Star Alliance lounges at T2 alongside United, Lufthansa and Singapore Airlines.
The Canuck carrier describes the new lounge as being "a serene, stylish oasis where eligible Air Canada and Star Alliance customers can rest, refuel or refresh before their flight in an inspiring, contemporary environment."
Parts of the lounge adopt a split-level two-tier design to make the most of the view over T2's operational area.
This 700 square metre space also includes a separate business centre with Windows 8 desktops, colour laser printing and scanning, and of course there's fast and free WiFi flowing through the lounge.
There's also a quiet zone featuring 'reclining pods' equipped with personal satellite TV screens, USB ports and Sony noise-cancelling headsets.
Pre-flight dining options include a cooking station to prepare meals upon request; a bistro-style dining area with a selection of hot and cold dishes; and to wash it down, a bar with Molson Canadian beer on tap along with a large selection of wines, beer and spirits.
Travellers can also wash away the day's grime or just freshen up ahead of the flight in one of the 'spa-inspired' shower suites with large rain-shower heads.
The Maple Leaf Lounge is open from 6am to 10pm daily to Air Canada Altitude Super Elite 100K, Elite 75K and Elite 50K members, Star Alliance Gold members and customers travelling in Business Class.
