United to open new lounge at SAN


The United Club Lounge design debuted at Chicago O'Hare Airport

The August 13 opening coincides with the consolidation of United's terminal facilities to the newly expanded Terminal 2 West, offering passengers a new ticketing lobby, baggage claim area and improved shopping and dining options.

The 5,842-square-foot United Club in San Diego is located in Terminal 2 West on the Mezzanine level, directly above the airport's new Sunset Cove, an atrium that offers panoramic views of the airfield. The United Club faces the Point Loma seaside community and has balcony lounge seating within the atrium and a centrally located buffet and bar.

"The new United Club in San Diego offers customers an improved airport lounge experience that reflects a true Southern California ambiance," said Martin Hand, senior vice president of customer experience at United. "Our investment in our clubs and airport facilities worldwide underscores our ongoing commitment to improving the overall travel experience for our customers."

United is investing more than US$50 million this year to renovate several of the airline's 49 United Club locations. United unveiled the new design prototype with the opening of the United Club in Terminal 2 at Chicago O'Hare International Airport last year.
