LOT Polish Airlines has announced the construction of North America’s first business lounge at Chicago’s O’Hare Airport. For the Polish carrier, Chicago is a strategic destination in the US market in terms of the potential traffic of Polish and other minorities living in the metropolitan area. In the new LOT Polish Airlines lounge, passengers will enjoy a modern work zone, a relaxation zone as well as a catering zone. There will be touches reminiscent of Polish tradition through, among other things, the use of amber in the space, as well as cooperation with Polish partners. The opening is scheduled for late Q3/early Q4 2024.

LOT Polish Airlines is continuing its drive towards enhancing the passenger experience. The new LOT Business Lounge at Chicago’s O’Hare Airport will be the first space of its kind outside Europe. Its opening is scheduled for late Q3/early Q4 2024. The interior will be characterised by a modern design, but also by a well-thought-out functional concept. Several zones will be available for passengers to make waiting for their journey even more comfortable.

The Windy City, Home Alone or Michael Jordan – these are just some of the many symbols that define the city on Michigan Lake. For LOT Polish Airlines, Chicago represents a key destination in the United States because of its potential for Polish-American traffic. It is also a place close to Polish traditions, which is why the national carrier’s new business lounge is being built there, featuring local touches such as amber and products from Polish partners. The airline is finalising the design of the interior fit-out and has invited a prestigious architectural firm in Chicago to collaborate on the design.

“I feel truly delighted that we can now break the news of the construction of the LOT Business Lounge at Chicago’s O’Hare Airport. The new, and at the same time first business lounge outside Europe is another milestone in the development of our company. We want the space to symbolise the Polish hospitality which LOT is inextricably associated with. I do believe that it will help us offer a fantastic experience to our guests”, says Izabela Leszczyńska, Director of the Product Development and Customer Experience Department.

The new LOT Polish Airlines Business Lounge in Chicago will cover a total of 617 sqm and will be situated in the central part of the terminal. An unquestionable highlight of the space will be the view of the airport apron. Inside it, passengers will have the opportunity to enjoy three zones: relaxation, work and catering. The work zone will be furnished with appropriate laptop tables and charging stations for electronic devices. In the catering zone, passengers will have the opportunity to sit comfortably and enjoy a wide range of food and beverages. The relaxation zone – quiet, darkened and separated from the other areas – will be just perfect for all travellers who dream of a moment alone.  

The Business Lounge will be open to LOT Polish Airlines passengers and partner programme cardholders.
