Here's the WestJet Elevation Lounge at Calgary International Airport (YYC) and how to enter it with some credit cards!
The WestJet Elevation Lounge is conveniently located at Concourse B of the Domestic Terminal and is accessible to guests departing from Concourses A, B and C, as well as Concourse D of the International Terminal (when accessed from security checkpoint B or C).
The WestJet Elevation lounge is open from 7 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. daily.
At the end of the article, find out more about the credit cards you need to get free access to the WestJet Elevation Lounge!
WestJet Elevation Lounge - Dining Room
During COVID-19, there is no buffet (but the location predicts a nice place to get some food).
The service is done at the table, and you can order some food by taking a picture of the QR code stuck on the tables.
In the middle of the lounge, there is a large communal table. And on both sides long benches with small tables.
WestJet Elevation Lounge – Workspace
There are many spaces to relax throughout the lounge, with cozy armchairs having a small view of the outside.
And workspaces, which are perfect for isolating yourself. Note the chosen materials giving a sense of freshness.
A printer is available near the meeting rooms.
The lounge also has closed spaces for gathering. You will be able to book a meeting space for a maximum duration of 60 minutes and a maximum occupancy of 4 people.
WestJet Rewards Platinum and Gold members may also reserve the space up to seven days in advance by calling their respective priority support number, available through the WestJet app.
WestJet Elevation Lounge – Bar
The bar is the masterpiece of this lounge. Elegant, despite all the protections related to the COVID-19.
And what about this fireplace!
To take an order at the bar, you can chat with the bartender behind a plexiglass.
Or you can use the QR code at your place.
WestJet Elevation Lounge – Family Space
At the back of the lounge, there is another space to relax and read a magazine. And it’s also where you’ll find a space for families!
In this space, consisting of two rooms, there are televisions and other game screens. No doubt when COVID-19 is finished, toys will fill this space! Also, note that USB and sector sockets are available under the benches, allowing parents to connect!
Just near the family space, another separate room will probably allow families to gather in case of a lack of space within the Family Space.
WestJet lounge Elevation - Shower
Again, no false notes in the materials chosen for the toilets. And the lounge has several showers you can book.
How To Access The WestJet Elevate Lounge
In my post about the presentation of this lounge, I mentioned the four ways for accessing it. The most common being through credit cards
The WestJet Elevation Lounge is a member of the Priority Pass and LoungeKey networks. This means you’ll be able to access it using your credit card free lounge passes.
For example, if you have the Business Platinum Card® from American Express, you have unlimited access for you and a guest. With a lower annual fee, the CIBC Aventura® Visa Infinite* Card provides 4 complimentary visits per year to Priority Pass lounges.
Finally, a great choice could also be the BMO® World Elite®* Mastercard®*, which offers 4 complimentary visits per year to LoungeKey airport lounges. Besides, this card is free for the first year!
This WestJet Elevation lounge is arguably the most attractive lounge available to Priority Pass and LoungeKey members in Canada! Don’t hesitate to visit this lounge on your next visit to Calgary (YYC); you won’t be disappointed!
Of course, I had the opportunity to visit it in the middle of COVID-19: as you can see from the photos, this lounge was far from full. It will be interesting to see what happens once travel resumes.
