MAG USA said this week it is entering into a joint venture with Gideon Toal Management and Superior Hospitality Group to design, build and operate an Escape Lounge at Broward County’s Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport (FLL).
The Escape Lounge, MAG USA’s 16th, will be located in Terminal 3 post-security and is expected to open by year end. The common-use lounge will offer hot and cold chef-curated food, premium alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, ample power outlets, high-speed Wi-Fi, up-to-the-second flight information and access to 7,000+ digital publications in 60+ languages from 120+ countries.
“Escape Lounges bring all of the amenities that travelers desire into one controlled space, delivering the most enjoyable pre- and post-flight experience,” said Martin Jones, CEO of MAG USA.
The more than 5,000-square-foot lounge will also feature plush and relaxing seating with airfield views and a design aesthetic inspired by South Florida. Escape Lounge FLL will be open to all travelers for $40 if booked in advance or $45 if paid at the door. Escape Lounges are part of the American Express Global Lounge Collection SM, giving American Express Platinum Card Members complimentary access, along with two guests.
“For a nominal fee, Escape Lounge FLL can be a retreat for any airline passenger seeking an upgraded airport experience in between flights,” said Mark Gale, FLL CEO and director of aviation.
