If you’re traveling through LaGuardia Airport in New York, you’ll have a number of different airport lounges from which to choose. Here’s a look at the locations, hours of operation and fees for access, as well as a description of some of the amenities offered by each lounge.
What is an airport lounge?
An airport lounge is a private space that is separate from the main terminal area. Airport lounges typically offer a more comfortable setting than the main terminal, with amenities like plush chairs, complimentary snacks and drinks, TVs, Wi-Fi and more. Many airport lounges also offer business facilities like conference rooms and photocopiers.
The cost of accessing an airport lounge varies, but most lounges either charge an annual membership fee or a per-visit fee. Some credit cards also offer complimentary access to airport lounges as a perk for cardholders. If you want a day pass, some lounges charge $50 to $65 per visit.
