Swissport is accelerating the global expansion of its Aspire Airport Lounges brand.

With the opening of four lounges in Perth (Australia), Manchester (UK), Geneva (Switzerland) and Kilimanjaro (Tanzania) between January and March, and now three additional lounges in the U.S., the Aspire network will grow to 64 locations worldwide by the end of May, giving the brand a growing and increasingly visible presence at airports around the world.

The fully refurbished former Airspace Lounge at San Diego International Airport, California, opened its doors on 19 February as an Aspire Lounge.

It is accessible to all passengers departing from Terminal 2.

In addition, two more Aspire lounges will open their doors on 19 May at Terminals 2 and 4 at Ontario International Airport, one of the airports serving the Los Angeles metropolitan area in Southern California.

“We are excited to bring our renowned Aspire lounge brand to the U.S. with three carefully refurbished lounges,” says Nick Ames, Head of Lounges North America.

“The opening of the San Diego and Ontario lounges mark an important milestone in the expansion of our global lounge network.

“The three U.S. Aspire lounges are open to all travelers irrespective of travel class or airline and offer a dedicated space to relax, refresh and recharge before a flight.”

The San Diego lounge accommodates up to 126 visitors and features floor-to-ceiling windows that offer exceptional views of the busy airfield.

The new delicatessen counter houses the central buffet with a wide selection of food and beverages.

The lounge also includes shower facilities and a fully equipped business area where travelers can work in peace and privacy with charging facilities and free Wi-Fi.

Ontario’s Aspire lounges, both set to open on 19 May, will be located in Terminals 2 and 4 and will be able to accommodate 64 and 54 guests respectively.
