Virgin Atlantic has opened a ”1m ($2m) Clubhouse for Upper Class passengers at Boston”s Logan International Airport.
Its four zones ” accommodating up to 75 passengers - include a ”Library and Business Centre”, providing complimentary wi-fi connectivity, telephone land lines for international and local calls, and facilities to charge Blackberries, mobile phones and iPods. The library is a quieter section with a mixture of magazines, books and newspapers.
The Deli is the Clubhouse centrepiece, where a chef serves a range of regionally-inspired dishes made with fresh, locally-sourced ingredients. The Brasserie offers food with a continental flavour, and the Lounge is furnished with leather seats, reading materials, and hot and cold beverage machines.
Passengers can also help themselves to drinks and snacks from various stations, and food throughout zones is complimentary.
”We have developed some of the best elements of our flagship clubhouse at Heathrow and innovatively integrated them into the new space,” said Virgin Atlantic head of design Joe Ferry.
Virgin recently won Best Business Class Lounge at the World Airline Awards 2007 for its Heathrow Clubhouse. The airline launched its Boston service from the London hub in May 1991, since when 3.3m passengers have flown the route.
