When it comes to airport relaxation and luxury, not all lounges are created equal. Star Alliance’s lounge at Los Angeles airport has firmly established its place at the top, clinching the title of North America’s Leading Airport Lounge for an impressive fourth consecutive year at the esteemed World Travel Awards 2023.
The accolade was presented in the idyllic settings of Saint Lucia during the Caribbean & The Americas Gala Ceremony on August 26.
The Alliance’s CEO, Theo Panagiotoulias, beamed with pride, “Lounges are the unsung heroes of smooth air travel, and our LAX facility has consistently proven to be the leading choice for travelers. The recognition speaks volumes about the dedicated team that ensures our lounge is top-notch every single day and the continued support from our member carriers.”
It’s not just the World Travel Awards singing its praises; the Star Alliance Los Angeles airport lounge was also crowned the World’s Best Airline Alliance Lounge by Skytrax in June 2023. Visitors to the expansive 18,000 square-foot space are treated to an enviable outdoor terrace boasting firepits and a water wall, complete with panoramic runway views stretching to the Hollywood Hills. By day, it exudes a laid-back Californian vibe, while the evening sees it morph into a lively hub. From relaxation spots to dining areas, the lounge encapsulates the very essence of premium air travel.
Initiated in 1993, the World Travel Awards serve as a benchmark of excellence in the global travel and tourism sector, celebrating entities that consistently elevate the industry standards.
