pleased to announce the opening of the first common use passenger lounge at
Toronto Pearson International Airport. This new space, open for business on
November 1st, will be available for all international passengers travelling
through Terminal 1, no matter which airline they are flying.
For a cost of $35.00, passengers will have the opportunity to take
advantage of this innovative new lounge. Visitors to the lounge will have
wireless internet access, and use of printers, monitors and flat screen
televisions to stay connected while travelling. With admission also comes
unlimited food and beverage access.
"We're very happy to see this new lounge opening for business. This space
is meant to be a retreat for passengers that are looking for privacy, a place
to work, or simply a place to relax before their flight. Our passengers and
our airline partners told us that this is a service they would love to see
provided at Toronto Pearson and we are excited to make that a reality," said
Lloyd McCoomb, President and CEO of the GTAA.
The lounge will be operated by Plaza Premium. Partnering with the GTAA in
this project was Samsung Electronics Canada who provided all the monitors,
printers and flat screen televisions for the lounge.
