Air France inaugurated its completely revamped and more spacious lounge located in the heart of Washington-Dulles international airport (USA), near the boarding gates.

The new lounge welcomes Air France La Première and Business customers and Flying Blue Elite Plus members in a completely revamped, more elegant and modern setting.

Spanning a total surface area of 615 sq. m, on two levels, the lounge can accommodate up to 155 customers. Subtly combining comfort, creativity and French-style elegance, this lounge reflects the Air France brand identity. Through its choice of materials, furnishings and range of bright colours, the Air France lounge has a sleek, elegant feel.

The new Night Service – dine in the lounge and sleep on board: At the heart of the lounge, a new dining area has been offering Business customers on the daily 21:10 AF027 flight from Washington to Paris-Charles de Gaulle the Night Service. The Night Service anticipates customers’ need to enjoy a good night’s sleep on night flights. They can enjoy the same gourmet French meal in the airport lounge as the one served on board. A full meal comprising a starter, hot dish, cheese, dessert and a wines and Champagnes list is served at their table.

During the flight, customers can enjoy a good night’s sleep in the comfort of the Business class cabin. A quiet, private cabin, with the guarantee of a peaceful night’s sleep in a seat that transforms into a lie-flat bed. When they awake, when the French coast looms on the horizon, breakfast is served before landing at Paris-Charles de Gaulle.

A new dining experience: Air France has also revamped its dining area to highlight French gourmet cuisine. Designed in the spirit of a Parisian brasserie, new furnishings and circular benches have been custom-designed to provide conviviality and comfort. Guests can enjoy a self-service buffet with a cold, sweet and savoury selection.

A custom-designed experience: The new Air France lounge also includes dedicated areas for a tailor-made experience – a VIP area with a cosy and private atmosphere, dedicated to customers travelling in the La Première cabin & an area reserved for Ultimate customers.

  • A lobby equipped with new eligibility kiosks, for smoother access;
