Air Canada Maple Leaf Lounge Vancouver (YVR) Review
During a visit to Vancouver International Airport, I had the opportunity to test the Air Canada Maple Leaf Lounge (domestic flights) located between gates 29 and 30, in part C.
Access to Air Canada Maple Leaf Lounge
At Air Canada Maple Leaf Lounge welcome desks in Vancouver, employees are protected by Plexiglas partitions. All you need to do is scan your boarding pass to get access to the lounge.
The lounge is located on the upper floor. It can be reached via an elevator or by stairs.
Usually located near the entrance, magazines and newspapers are absent. Air Canada invites you to browse the selection available through the Pressreader app (while connected to the Lounge’s Wi-Fi network).
The lounge can get very crowded and there are many chairs available throughout this huge lounge.
There is even an office so that several people can work or have their meeting.
In addition, there is a free charging station for your mobile devices.
The food service
What is generally the attraction of a lounge, besides its comfortable spaces to relax before a flight, is the food and beverage aspect.
At the time of my visit, there was no buffet. But a few days later, the distribution of free food began.
At any time, it is possible to get different dishes.
On the day of my visit, here is the selection that was available:
- Tuna Salad Wrap
- Turkey & Provolone Sandwich
- Quinoa & Cranberry salad
- Classic potato salad
- Crudité & Dip (Tomato, Cucumbers & Tzatziki)
- Chips, Muesli Bar, Candy Bar
During meal times, it is possible to place an order directly from your table by scanning the available QR code.
Since this is a very busy lounge, expect to see a lot of travelers when you visit. Preferably, arrive early or you will have to wait outside.
