Passengers departing on an international flight from Terminal 1 at Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport have a new lounge to visit.
As of October 13, 2023, the new Star Alliance Lounge Paris is open to the public.
I had the opportunity to attend the ribbon-cutting ceremony at the new lounge, and I’d like to share my initial impressions before writing an organic review at some point in the near future.
The New Star Alliance Lounge Paris
Paris Charles de Gaulles Airport has a brand new Star Alliance Lounge that’s now open to the public.
The new Star Alliance Lounge Paris is located after security in Terminal 1 of Paris Charles de Gaulles Airport. Eligible passengers departing on international flights from gates 10–38 will enjoy access to the lounge.
Passengers who can enjoy complimentary access to the lounge are as follows:
- Guests travelling in First Class on a Star Alliance airline
- Guests travelling in business class on a Star Alliance airline
- Guests with Star Alliance Gold status travelling in any class of service on a Star Alliance airline
- Guests with an eligible United Club membership
Designed by architecture firm Gensler, who was also responsible for the Star Alliance Lounge Los Angeles, the lounge can accommodate over 300 guests across 1,300 square feet.
The Star Alliance Lounge Paris was inspired by Parisian aesthetics, which is reflected in its many arched doorways and wall mouldings, as well as local artwork and photographs of Paris.
Guests at the lounge can enjoy plenty of natural light and runway views, with a glass façade that spans the entirety of the lounge.
Some of the standout features of the lounge include the Wine Bar, which features Gerard Bertrand wines from the south of France, the Tea Salon, which offers teas sourced from around the world, private work cabins, and spacious shower suites.
This lounge becomes the seventh Star Alliance Lounge worldwide, and the second in Paris. The other Star Alliance Lounge is located prior to security, and serves guests departing on intra-Schengen flights from gates 50–78.
As it stands, 20 Star Alliance airlines service Paris Charles de Gaulle, with 464 weekly flights to 34 destinations across 22 countries.
