With the recent debut of Air Canada’s unique Cafe Lounge in Toronto Airport last year and a business class lounge in LaGuardia Airport in 2018, the airline is about to welcome another premium lounge called Signature Suite this month at Vancouver International Airport (YVR).

Set to open next week to the public, the new Air Canada Signature Suite will be very similar to the Signature Suite in Toronto. This lounge, like its sister lounge, is described by the airline as a “haven away from the airport hustle” where you can “have a space to relax before the next leg of your journey…enjoy spectacular service in the restaurant dining room and bar area, work peacefully in the quiet work area or take advantage of a personalized concierge service, there to take care of all of your travel needs”.

The Air Canada Signature Suite lounge offers a light and airy atmosphere, featuring wood, leather and marble decor with furniture made from local designers. Aside from the seating options, which range from single leather chairs to couches…

Air Canada Signature Suite also has a dining area where travelers can order from an a la carte menu created for the airline by David Hawksworth, an awarding-winning chef in Vancouver. Menu items are influenced by the region and can include mouth-watering dishes such as bourbon-glazed pork belly, wild and cultivated mushroom risotto, lightly smoked sablefish, roasted corn fritter and braised beef short rib. If that doesn’t make one salivate, we don’t know what will.

On the other hand, for those who want a quick pick-me-up versus something off the menu can head to the buffet filled with hot and cold options made from local and fresh ingredients. Need a drink? The bar in the back of the dining area has a bartender who can whip up a premium cocktail or something on the rocks. They also serve champagne, wine, beer, coffee, espresso and non-alcoholic options as well.

There is also a small nook for a small group of passengers that can be utilized for meetings or families traveling together who need a little more privacy. Traveling solo? It’s a great place to work or read an interesting book, magazine or newspaper.

Air Canada has not yet announced if the Signature Suite will have showers or if travelers will have to use the ones located in the Maple Leaf Lounge. Aside from that small detail to be determined, this lounge is a winner in our books.

The Air Canada Signature Suite lounge is open to those traveling in business class on Air Canada to an international destination (tickets purchased with miles do not count). All other business class passengers will have to opt for the Maple Leaf Lounge. The Signature Suite is also off-limits to those flying in business class on other Star Alliance partners.
