A New Type of Airport Lounge



When traveling through Cleveland recently, I was tipped off to a new feature at the airport. Cleveland Hopkins Airport is the newest location of an Airspace Lounge, a new type of lounge made for all travelers.

These lounges are quite different from the airline lounges you’re used to. For one, they are open to any flyer, regardless of the airline they’re flying. For only $20, flyers receive unlimited coffee, tea, soft drinks, juice and espresso. Each guest also gets a credit to use towards any of the food or drinks on the menu. The interior is sleek and modern, with lots of windows that allow for cool views of the runway. One of my favorite features has to be the WiFi and power outlets, which we all know can be hard to come by at a lot of airports! This place is something I know I would have used on a recent 6 hour layover in Miami.

This location opened last year, and there are also outposts in Baltimore, San Francisco and New York’s JFK. I didn’t use the lounge since I was pressed for time, but I’ll definitely be checking it out next time I’m in Cleveland. Have you visited an Airspace lounge? What do you think of this new concept? Let me know your thoughts!

  1. I saw this at BWI. I heard that admission is free for American Express Platinum Card holders, so I may check it out next time I’m there. Looks nice.

  2. On a long layover in Cleveland, that lounge was a lifesaver. It was an excellent place to get away from the noisy boarding areas and the crowded concourses. I was able to get some work done in a comfortable, quiet environment. What a good value compared to the pricey airline clubs which cost twice as much for a day pass. Thanks for awesome travel tips and advice.
