Airport Lounge Development on track with aggressive lounge network expansion

Airport Lounge Development Inc. (ALD) has opened The Lounge at Boston Logan International Airport (BOS), marking its 12th location, the company said.

The new opening continues ALD´s consistent record of aggressively growing its network of airport lounge locations over the past two years. Powered by the overwhelmingly positive feedback to its offering from travelers, airlines and airport partners, ALD has seen greater demand for its services across the US with guest volumes growing by 40 percent year-over-year.

ALD introduced the shared-use lounge concept to the US more than 10 years ago when it opened its first lounge at Dallas/Forth Worth International Airport. A shared-use lounge offers an alternative to airline-operated and members-only lounges, providing the oasis of an airport lounge to all travelers regardless of choice of airline, class of ticket purchased or affinity membership. ALD´s shared-use lounges also present a valuable new revenue source for airports and assists in attracting new airlines by delivering a tailored lounge experience for their premium travelers.

ALD will be refurbishing The Lounge in the coming months, which will incorporate ALD´s signature ´Zones´ throughout the lounge, allowing guests greater productivity, and to relax, refresh or rest.

Operating since 2006, ALD is the US leader in independent shared-use lounges offering an affordable hospitality experience for travelers on any airline and traveling any class of service. ALD specializes in the design, construction, operation, management and marketing of independent shared-use airport lounges. ALD´s experienced leadership team is known for delivering a turnkey lounge solution tailored to the airport´s needs and supported by an established customer foundation.
