United Airlines is opening a new United Club lounge in Terminal 2 at San Diego International Airport on August 13.
The United Club lounge at San Diego International Airport will be the third to feature the airline’s new design concept.
Its opening coincides with the consolidation of United Airlines’ terminal facilities at San Diego International Airport to the newly expanded Terminal 2 West, offering customers a new ticketing lobby, baggage claim area and improved shopping and dining options.
United Airlines is relocating its gates to Terminal 2 West and repositioning its ticket counters to the west end of the terminal. United is one of the largest airline tenants at San Diego International Airport, offering 45 flights a day to the carrier’s eight domestic hubs.
The new, 5,842-square-foot United Club at San Diego International Airport is located in Terminal 2 West on the Mezzanine level, directly above the airport’s new Sunset Cove, an atrium that offers panoramic views of the airfield.
United’s new Club lounge features spectacular views of the Point Loma seaside community, balcony lounge seating within the atrium and a centrally located buffet and bar. The club’s furnishings are new and are designed to help its visitors relax or work with greater ease and comfort.
“The new United Club in San Diego offers customers an improved airport lounge experience that reflects a true Southern California ambience,” says Martin Hand, senior vice president of customer experience for United Airlines.
United is investing more than $50 million this year to renovate several of the airline’s 49 United Club locations. United unveiled the new design prototype with the opening of the United Club in Terminal 2 at Chicago O’Hare International Airport last year. The airline recently opened a newly designed United Club at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport.
As with all United Club lounges, members are offered complimentary snacks, beverages and Wi-Fi.
In addition to redesigning several of its airport lounges, United recently opened its new Terminal B south concourse at Houston Bush Intercontinental Airport, a 225,000-square-foot facility that features modern and expanded gate-lounge areas, additional electric power outlets and more space for carry-on luggage.
United is similarly retrofitting its gate areas in Terminal 2 at Chicago O’Hare International Airport and recently launched a new customer service center at its Chicago hub to serve customers more quickly and effectively.
