Star Alliance is the largest global airline alliance. In addition to all of the lounges operated by member airlines that provide access to premium and elite travelers, it operates several lounges globally. The latest will open in Terminal 1 at Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport (CDG) this Friday, October 13th.

Where Are the Star Alliance Lounges Located?

Star Alliance operates seven branded lounges worldwide (largely in cities that are not Star Alliance airline hubs). These include:

  • Schiphol Amsterdam Airport (AMS)
  • Buenos Aires’ Ezeiza International Airport (EZE)
  • Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) (pictured above)
  • Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport (CDG)
  • Rio de Janeiro/Galeão–Antonio Carlos Jobim International Airport (GIG)
  • Rome Leonardo da Vinci–Fiumicino Airport (FCO)

The new Star Alliance lounge will welcome First and Business Class passengers, those holding Star Alliance Gold status, as well as United Club℠ and Air Canada Maple Leaf Lounge members. It’s located in Terminal 1 for flights departing from Gates 10 to 38. These gates serve non-Schengen destinations (basically those traveling outside of the European Union).

The lounge will measure around 13,000 square feet and has seats for over 300 passengers. The architecture firm, Gensler, designed the space. It also designed the award-winning Star Alliance lounge at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) that opened in 2013.

The lounge will offer a buffet, a bar, an immersive wine bar, a tea salon, private work stations, a winter garden, a spacious outdoor courtyard, and shower suites. The space is “enriched by local brands and artists for the quintessential French charm.” Timeless Parisian design elements like wall moldings and archways, black and white photographs of the Eiffel Tower, and furnishings by French artists will fill the space.

Star Alliance CEO, Theo Panagiotoulias, said:

Star Alliance stands for elevating the experience of its member airline passengers, and airport lounges play a vital role. We’re very proud to present our new Paris lounge, which is not only a delight to experience but also thoughtfully designed to meet the needs of the modern frequent traveller.”

Anthony’s Take: I’ve visited the Star Alliance lounges in Amsterdam, Buenos Aires, Los Angeles, Paris (Terminal 1), and Rome. I look forward to checking this one out in the future.
