Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport will be the fifth U.S. airport to have a common use lounge designed by MAG USA. The company will invest more than $1 million in the 2,500-square-foot Escape Lounge, scheduled to open this fall.
Greenville-based Mavin Construction is the contractor for the project.
Escape Lounge will include hot and cold food and beverage choices, seating, high-speed wi-fi and up-to-the-second flight information, according to a news release. Each Escape Lounge’s food offerings are developed by a local chef using locally-sourced ingredients wherever possible. A search is underway for a chef for GSP’s Escape Lounge.
“This Escape Lounge will allow us to offer all passengers a premium sanctuary after the security checkpoint and before boarding their flight,” said Dave Edwards, GSP president and CEO, in the release. “It’s important for us to create an enjoyable airport experience from ticket purchase to destination. This lounge will contribute to that experience.”
The other airports with an Escape Lounge are Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport, Oakland International Airport, Bradley International Airport and Reno-Tahoe International Airport.
MAG USA is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Manchester Airport Group.p
