The global SkyTeam alliance – including Delta, Air France-KLM, China Eastern, China Southern, Korean Air and others – will soon open a new lounge at Beijing’s Capital International Airport.
The alliance’s sixth lounge worldwide, the Beijing facility is for first class and business class passengers and elite-plus members flying on any of the 12 SkyTeam carriers that serve the Chinese capital.
This is especially good news considering Beijing’s notorious reputation for delays.
The Beijing lounge in Terminal 2 can accommodate 160 persons in its 8,600 square feet. It features a buffet service with hot and cold Chinese and international cuisine; bar service; big, curved windows with airport views; free Wi-Fi; a business area with computers; power outlets throughout; showers with towels and toiletries; a TV room; relaxation area; and VIP room.
The other lounges are in Dubai, Hong Kong, Istanbul, London Heathrow and Sydney. The alliance said its 12 member airlines at Beijing operate more than 3,700 flights a week there.
