Swissport is continuing the global expansion of its airport lounge business.
With the new lounge at Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport, Swissport’s global network of lounges increases to 65 locations.
The ASPIRE Lounge brand has steadily increased its global visibility and is now one of the leading independent airport lounge operators across the globe.
The new Toronto lounge is set to be the first LEED-certified lounge in Swissport’s network, which denotes it meets today’s standards for sustainable design, construction and operation.
Completely bespoke, the interior design takes inspiration from downtown Toronto and will feature an array of suspended and integrated light fixtures to reflect the city’s cosmopolitan landscape.
The 4,271 square feet space will seat 133 guests and combines wood-textured furniture, quartz countertops, and custom partitions with greenery to deliver an experience that is at once bold, sophisticated, and timeless.
“We are thrilled to be awarded the operation of a brand-new lounge at Toronto City Airport following a competitive tender process by Nieuport Aviation,” says Nick Ames, Head of Lounges North America.
“The airport is truly one-of-a-kind, serving the downtown area with ‘efficiency’ at its heart.
“Our aim is to mirror this goal by offering an exceptional and efficient pre-flight experience to those departing the city.”
“Being at the heart of Toronto’s downtown and part of the incredible waterfront community makes this airport unique,” says Neil Pakey, President and CEO of Nieuport Aviation.
“We always look to further enhance our sense of place at Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport and in partnering with Swissport we can now offer a bespoke airport lounge that further enhances our terminal and the overall passenger experience.
“We are thrilled to see the new ASPIRE Lounge soon open its doors and we know it will exceed our passenger’s expectations.”
