Air China has opened a new premium lounge designed according to Star Alliance standards at Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport.
Furnished in a southern-Chinese style, the new premium lounge covers an area of 1,000 square meters and is the largest lounge at Baiyun Airport. The 165-seat lounge offers a wide range of functions including a changing room, showers, a sleeping area, food and beverages, a smoking area, an entertainment zone, an internet cafe, baggage storage, mobile phone recharging stations, and two VIP rooms.
Currently eight Star Alliance member airlines - Air China, Shanghai Airlines, Singapore Airlines, Lufthansa, ANA, Thai, Egypt Air, and Asiana Airlines - are operating from Guangzhou Baiyun Airport, offering over 120 domestic flights and 20 international flights to 20 domestic and 7 international cities. To support Star Alliance initiatives and to follow the service standards of Star Alliance's "Move under One Roof" initiative, Baiyun Airport allocated its East Concourse 2 for the exclusive use of Air China, and as such, over 90% of Air China flights to the airport will be able to dock and connect to the terminal directly.
