Alaska Airlines refreshes our Lounges with new spaces and amenities

Since 2018, Alaska has doubled the footprint in their Lounges and invested $30 million in overall improvements, including our award-winning Flagship Lounge at the N Concourse in Seattle, their new Lounge in San Francisco and a new patio space at Concourse C Lounge in Portland.

Alaska continue to invest in upgrades to make Alaska Lounges better (and bigger) than ever.

They’re currently focusing on remodeling and renovating our additional popular locations in Seattle, adding amenities that mean the most to their Lounge members.

“Our members know our Lounge program is one of the best values in the airline industry with one of the most generous access policies,” said Sangita Woerner, senior vice president of marketing and guest experience at Alaska Airlines.

“We’re investing in more space and better products as we strive to ensure our members have a terrific experience when they step inside any of our locations.”

Here’s what’s happening across their Lounges:

“Just in time for the holidays, our expanded C Concourse Lounge at our hometown airport in Seattle opens next week. With an additional 3,000 square feet, we’ve doubled the seating space with enough room for 60 more seats. Great views of the tarmac remain unchanged.

“When the busy holiday season wraps up, the second phase of renovations in Seattle begins on Jan. 7, 2023, after the D Concourse Lounge closes for a complete overhaul. It’s set to reopen in summer 2023. The location will have 30% more seating, a new barista station, new food and beverage offerings, and an improved layout.

“At our Lounges in Los Angeles and San Francisco, we’re brightening the spaces with modern furniture and other touches. At LAX, we’ve installed new artwork by local artists.

“We’ve invested $1.5 million for Lounge upgrades in Portland this year. Along with expanding our current Lounge by 1,000 square feet with the addition of an enclosed patio area, we’ve also added an Express Lounge at Concourse B to give our guests more options.

“Guests at our Lounges can enjoy a wide variety of complimentary West Coast craft beers and sip featured West Coast wines. At select locations, we’re also expanding our hot food options that are served throughout the day.”
