featuring our Business Class – Transcontinental product, with lie flat
suites in Business Class,” said Benjamin Smith, President, Passenger

The new Newark Liberty International Airport lounge is the third U.S.

at LaGuardia Airport and at Los Angeles International Airport. The
Newark lounge offers customers refreshments, complimentary Wifi, and
work facilities that include complimentary printing capabilities, all in

located past security close to Air Canada gates, so customers can easily
board their flights directly after leaving the lounge. The new lounge
further strengthens Air Canada’s position as the leading carrier
operating between Canada and the New York City region.
