LAX gains Virgin Atlantic Clubhouse

Virgin Atlantic has unveiled a brand new £2.5m Clubhouse, located in Terminal 2 at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX).  The 4,000sq ft lounge is a first time for the airline at LAX, previously using the Virgin America Loft in Terminal 6, necessitating a bus transfer to the boarding gate. 

The lounge is Virgin's 11th Clubhouse and faces the Hollywood Hills in the distance.

Reuben Arnold, Brand and Customer Engagement Director, Virgin Atlantic, said: "Los Angeles was the natural choice for our next Clubhouse investment.  It is such an important route for us – we have been flying there for 25 years this year.

"The investment in LAX will also include a refreshed check-in area as well as the introduction of a meet-and-greet chauffeur drop-off service.

"Furthermore, our brand new 787s will be on the route from May, and together with the increased connectivity as part of our joint venture with Delta, we're able to offer our customers the best possible experience when flying between London and Los Angeles."

The opening of the lounge virtually coincides with the delivery of Virgin Atlantic’s fifth Boeing 787, which will be used on the route.  Dreamliners already operate on Heathrow to Boston, Delhi and both JFK and Newark New York.  www.virgin-atlantic.com
