American Airlines has announced plans to open a new Admirals Club in Austin.
New Austin Lounge
American Airlines has announced plans to open a new 15,000+ square foot Admirals Club at Austin-Bergstrom International Airport. The lounge, which will be located near Gate 14, will be able to seat more than 250 passengers, making it the largest airport lounge in Austin, Texas. The construction of the new lounge will commence next year.
The inspiration for the lounge is taken from the city itself, reflecting the urban fabric of Rainey Street, Austin Parks, local art and music. Passengers will get a taste of the Austin vibe throughout their experience in the Admirals Club. Once open, passengers will also be entertained by local musicians.
Clarissa Sebastian, Managing Director of Premium Customer Experience and Onboard Products, American Airlines, said:
Austin has such a unique energy, with its fascinating mix of technology and arts. American wants to create a club that reflects that eclectic style and pays homage to the lively music scene. We can’t wait for customers to experience the new space, with much more room to relax, unwind and enjoy.
