More good news for Canadian travellers, especially those flying to or from Ottawa. Rewards Canada reader Todd let us know in the comments section of our Guide to Business Class Lounge Access that Swissport will be opening up an Aspire lounge in Ottawa. This will be their third Aspire branded lounge after the two in Calgary and fourth lounge in total in Canada as Swissport also runs the Montreal Airport Swissport Lounge.
According to the Ottawa Business Journal the lounge will take the space that Porter’s old lounge was in. It will have 3,700 square feet of space and be able to accommodate up to 90 people. Swissport states:
“The Aspire Lounge at Ottawa International Airport will offer a wide variety of complimentary hot and cold food and beverages, including local flavours and offerings such as St. Alberts Cheese, locally roasted coffees and Real Maple Syrup.”
Swissport also states the lounge will open in February 2020 – so this month! The lounge isn’t bookable yet on Swissport’s executivelounges.com website but we imagine it won’t be too long before you can book your visits online. Just like the other Aspire lounges in Canada you should be able to access the lounge with pretty much all the third party lounge access providers. I would also assume the lounge will become part of Amex’s Canadian lounge program as well. If you are not familiar with the various lounge access providers be sure to check our guide here.
