St. John's International Airport (YYT) will be home to a redesigned Air Canada Maple Leaf Lounge beginning this fall.

The lounge will feature a panoramic view of scenic Signal Hill, 77 percent more square footage and 46 additional seats.

Full details will be released when the lounge opens later this year, but the airline confirmed that amenities will include a Samsung TV zone and a self-serve bistro and bar with additional food and beverage offerings.

Benjamin Smith, Air Canada's President, Airlines and Chief Operating Officer, commented in a statement from the airline: "We look forward to the opening of our redesigned Maple Leaf Lounge in the newly expanded Departures Lounge at St John's later this year which will offer our eligible customers an elevated airport experience, with a quiet place to relax or work before their flight. Throughout the lounge, we're proudly showcasing Canadian furnishings, local art and crafts that will reflect the charm of Newfoundland and Labrador's landscape and people."

"We are delighted that our airline partner Air Canada has made this significant investment at our airport, for the benefit of many of our frequent travelers," said Keith Collins, President and CEO of St. John's International Airport Authority. "The beautifully designed new lounge with its added amenities will be well-received by passengers, and will assist in creating an exceptional experience at our airport."
