We’re making our Anchorage Lounge bigger and better

It’s time for us to spread our wings a bit more at our busiest Lounge. And do a makeover in the process. 

This month we began work to expand and renovate our Lounge at Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport. When it’s finished this summer, we’ll offer more than double the amount of seating—from 65 seats right now to 135 spots for our members and guests to take a load off and enjoy epic views of the tarmac and beyond. 

The expansion will add nearly 2,600 square feet of space that’ll be filled with a variety of comfy chairs and furniture including our popular Signature Loungers that will have prime views. Most seats will have easy access to outlets to keep devices powered and charged. We’re also adding a curated collection of artwork from artists who call the state of Alaska home. 

“This is just one of the many significant investments we have planned for our Lounge program across our network. When construction is wrapped up this summer, our members and guests will notice the benefits of additional space and seating right away, along with thoughtful touches and great service that Alaska is known for,” said Todd Traynor-Corey, managing director of guest products at Alaska Airlines.  

Expanding and upgrading our popular Lounge in Anchorage is an important piece of our Great Land Investment Plan which involves $60 million in projects throughout the state over the next few years,” said Marilyn Romano, regional vice president of Alaska for Alaska Airlines.  

Our Lounges are a place to refresh and recharge. We offer a complimentary selection of fresh, seasonal food items throughout the day for a quick bite to eat. For something to sip, we provide a wide array of beverages including hard-crafted espresso drinks and West Coast wines, brews and custom-crafted cocktails.
