Star Alliance’s Los Angeles airport lounge has won the title of North America’s Leading Airport Lounge for the fourth year running at the World Travel Awards 2023. The award was announced at the Caribbean & The Americas Gala Ceremony held on the picturesque island of Saint Lucia on August 26, 2023.

Commenting on the win, Star Alliance CEO Theo Panagiotoulias said: “At Star Alliance, we are all about making air travel more stress-free and frictionless. Lounges play a vital role in enhancing the airport journey, and our Star Alliance LAX lounge has been at the front of the pack since it first opened. We are delighted that once again, it has been named one of the best in the business.”

“My thanks go out to the dedicated team that keeps our LAX lounge running in tip-top shape from morning to night, as well as to our Star Alliance member carriers for working with us to make this lounge a success for so many years.”

The Star Alliance Los Angeles airport lounge is one of the world’s very best airport lounges, and consistently wins prestigious industry awards each year. Most recently, it was named the World’s Best Airline Alliance Lounge by Skytrax in June 2023.

Boasting an
outdoor terrace with firepits, a water wall and panoramic runway views towards the Hollywood Hills, the sprawling 18,000 square foot lounge captivates with cool Californian charm during the day, and transforms into a vibrant space as evening falls. For those preferring a peaceful moment before their flight, the lounge offers numerous areas to relax, work and dine as they wish.
