September 14 Update: Air Canada Maple Leaf Lounge opens in Saskatoon, free Stash Rewards points, Air Canada seat sale

Air Canada officially opened their 17th Maple Leaf Lounge in Canada yesterday at at Saskatoon John G. Diefenbaker International Airport (Skyxe). The lounge seats up to 40 people and showcases Canadian design and art, including work by two Saskatchewan artists, Shawn Evans and Holly Friesen.

"The 137-square-metre lounge features such amenities as a full-service bar offering a wide selection of beverages, including Canadian wines and specialty coffees, a self-serve buffet area and comfortable seating with a view of the tarmac. Business travellers planning to work on site may also take advantage of the cyber counter equipped with PCs and colour printing, complimentary Wi-Fi and access to a large variety of digital newspaper and magazine content via the PressReader app.

The Skyxe Maple Leaf Lounge will operate seven days a week, and is conveniently located in the departure gate area, steps away from Air Canada's departure gates."
Looking at YXE's departures board most Air Canada flights depart from gates 4, 5, and 6 so this lounge is located conveniently for those gates. Winnipeg flights depart from 1A which is on the other end of the airport but then again YXE isn't big by any means so it isn't a major trek.
