Frequent Air Canada travellers have the option of choosing between three tiers of airline lounge memberships, depending on their most frequent flight paths. The most affordable packages limit you to the Maple Leaf Lounges exclusively in Canada, while the Worldwide Club grants access to all Star Alliance lounges worldwide! All lounges include full business amenities, private areas, snacks, drinks galore and of course, plenty of comfort. If you happen to splurge for the North America Plus or Worldwide Club, it will be well worth your while to pop over to Heathrow to check out the swanky new Maple Leaf Lounge there. Benefits extend well beyond entrance. With your ‘club key’, you will also receive priority check-in, baggage and discounted (if not free) guest access, depending on your key level.
