Welcome to a freshly refurbished Lounge at Paris Charles de Gaulle (CDG) Airport!  It's officially completed by Star Alliance! The 980 square metre facility offers seating for more than 220 guests and features stylish elements inspired by Parisian design and architecture.

We are delighted to be able to offer our guests travelling from or transiting through Paris now with an unparalleled hospitality experience in a well equipped environment, where they can sit back, relax and enjoy their journey.”

The lounge, which was first opened in 2008,  is located behind passport control at the highest point of the terminal building – levels 10 and 11 – and provides a panoramic view of the airport from the upper floor. Open daily from 05.30am to 10.00pm depending on the flight schedule, the refurbished lounge offers a range of facilities catering to the diverse needs of today’s frequent travellers.
