DALLAS – Airport Lounge Development Inc. (ALD) announced the opening of The Club, located at Pittsburgh International Airport (PIT), ALD’s 17th lounge location. The new opening marks ALD’s third this year, further validating the increased demand for shared use lounges in the U.S. and ALD’s commitment to growing its lounge portfolio.
ALD’s shared use lounge concept provides all guests – regardless of class of ticket purchased, choice of airline or affinity membership – with a premium lounge experience at an affordable price point. ALD’s leadership team brings more than 30 years of knowledge in airline guest experience, hospitality and lounge management. Airports continue to turn to ALD to deliver their award winning shared use lounge product that enhances the travel experience for guests, while also giving airports additional non-aeronautical revenue by retaining current and attracting new airline carriers. ALD continues to provide spaces for the growing number of travelers looking for a lounge alternative.
“Recognized as one of the top ten airports in the U.S., Pittsburgh International Airport is the perfect location to continue Airport Lounge Development’s expansion. In 2016 alone, Pittsburgh International Airport served 8,309,754 passengers,” said Nancy Knipp, senior vice president of ALD. “As the demand for a lounge alternative continues to increase Airport Lounge Development is the solution for airports across the U.S. looking to improve the traveler experience and grow non-aeronautical revenues.”
The Club is located in Concourse C, between gates C54 and C56, and is accessible from Concourses A, B and D. Hours of operation are 4:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. on Mondays and 4:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday. The Club location will remain open to travelers until the completion of the 1800 sq. ft. permanent lounge, separately located across from gate C52, this fall. In the temporary lounge, guests can enjoy the full array of amenities ALD is known for including complimentary premium alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, snacks, Wi-Fi, and a variety of reading materials.
The temporary lounge provides seating for 35 guests, and is divided into zones to accommodate and anticipate the needs of every traveler. The Club’s Replenish Zone extends an array of food and drink options, while the productivity Zone provides easy access to electrical outlets and a work station with computer and a printer. The Relaxation Zone allows guests to take a break and rest before a long flight. Private restrooms are also available in the lounge.
Guests looking for a respite from the airport crowds can visit The Club by purchasing a day pass online or at the lounge for $40. The Club welcomes members of Priority Pass, Lounge Key, Lounge Club and Diners Club International, along with AAA Discount Rewards members.
