Korean Air Unveils New Lounge at LAX

korean air_Korean Air, America’s largest Asian airline, has unveiled its new lounge for Prestige and First class passengers and SkyTeam members at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX).

Located on the fifth floor in LAX’s Tom Bradley International Terminal, the new lounge was created by Gensler, a global integrated architecture and design firm that has created many innovative projects for airport facilities around the world.

The new 305 seat, 1,320 square-meter lounge is 68% larger and can accommodate 135 more passengers than the previous facilities.

In addition, the lounge offers exclusive services for travelers including four private lounge rooms, shower booths and a balcony offering panoramic views of the entire terminal.

In addition, as a flagship carrier of South Korea, Korean Air has installed a drawing of the Changdeok Palace, a UNESCO World Heritage site, at its entrance, showcasing Korea’s traditional beauty to passengers from around the world.

Korean Air currently operates an A380 from Los Angeles twice a day. The carrier is adding a second A380 flight from New York in May, making it the only airline serving both U.S coasts with double daily A380 flights to Asia. Earlier this year, Korean Air has also announced a daily service from Houston starting in May.
