    Star Alliance and Aéroports de Paris sign agreement on Star Alliance lounge at CDG. Star Alliance and Aéroports de Paris have signed an agreement which will see the construction of a Star Alliance Lounge in Terminal 1 at Paris’ Charles de Gaulle (CDG) Airport. Under this accord, which is part of the Memorandum of Understanding signed between the two parties in March 2005, Aéroports de Paris will select the space and be responsible for building the shell of the lounge, while Star Alliance will be in charge of the interior design and fitting as well as the day-to-day running of the facility. The 800 square metre Star Alliance Lounge will be situated across two levels of the main terminal building and is scheduled to open in spring 2008. Once in operation, it will primarily accommodate First and Business Class as well as Star Alliance Gold Card customers travelling on those Star Alliance member carriers from Paris – CDG1 who do not have their own dedicated lounge facilities. It will be the Alliance’s fourth Lounge built in the Star Alliance design; the other three being located in Los Angeles, Nagoya and Zurich. As the overall refurbishment of CDG Terminal 1 has progressed, Star Alliance has continued to implement its “Move under one Roof” strategy at its largest
    non-home market airport. Eighty per cent of all Star Alliance carriers operating out of Terminal 1 are now colocated in the same or adjacent Star Alliance-branded check-in area. Once the redevelopment is complete at
    the end of 2008, all Star Alliance member carriers serving Paris – CDG will operate from Terminal 1. This includes Air Canada, Austrian and SWISS, who are presently still operating from Terminal 2A, 2D and 2B respectively. Source: Star Alliance
