New Alaska Airlines Lounge Coming to SFO in 2020
Alaska Airlines today unveiled plans to build a new 8,500-square-foot top floor lounge at San FranciscoInternational Airport (SFO). Guests will be treated to the highest viewpoint of any other domestic lounge at SFO with stunning sights of the Bay and runway. Expected to open in 2020, the Alaska Airlines SFO lounge is the company’s first in Terminal 2 and is part of a multi-year commitment to invest in new and existing lounges.
“We are thrilled to announce this landmark investment in the Bay Area that will provide guests flying through SFO with our modern and comfortable lounge experience,” said Annabel Chang, Alaska Airlines’ vice president of the Bay Area in the press release. “SFO is our second largest hub with an average of 150,000 passengers flying on a daily basis, and we want to ensure airport visitors can rest, relax and enjoy our wide array of lounge offerings.”
Visitors can choose from a wide array of fresh and healthy food options, including Greek yogurt, steel cut oatmeal, and hardboiled eggs in the morning and seasonal salads, soups, and a tapas bar throughout the afternoon and evening. There’s also made to-order meals such as an Egg and Brioche sandwich with a cage-free egg, caramelized onions, and Tillamook cheddar, or a Korean Rice Bowl with steamed vegetables, gochujang sauce, and chicken or tofu.
Guests can enjoy handcrafted espresso beverages or loose-leaf teas brewed by an Alaska Lounge barista. The lounge bar will offer a selection of local microbrews on draft, West Coast wines and top-shelf spirits, such as California’s own Hangar 1® vodka.
If you happen to travel through SFO’s Terminal 2 today, you have the opportunity to win a free Alaska Lounge membership for the entire year. Guests are invited to Gate 54B where they can experience a demo of Alaska’s upgraded lounge experience. For a chance to win, travelers can take a picture of themselves enjoying the lounge experience and post it to Twitter and Instagram, tagging @AlaskaAir with the hashtag #MostWestCoast.
