Airport Dimensions opens a second shared-use lounge at Norman Y. Mineta San Jose International Airport

Airport Dimensions, previously known as Airport Lounge Development, an award-winning market leader of premium shared-use lounges, today announced a second lounge location at Norman Y. Mineta San Jose International Airport opening on October 10, 2019. The lounge provides seating for 88 visitors in its 3,977 square feet and offers different hospitality zones to accommodate and anticipate the needs of every traveller. The Club SJC is located near gate A8, a quick walk down the terminal from the award-winning first Club SJC lounge, which is located near gate A15.

“We have been delighted to have been part of the San Jose Airport’s exciting growth since we opened our first Club SJC in January 2013,” said Nancy Knipp, senior vice president of Airport Dimensions. “Since opening our first San Jose lounge, we have seen over 475% growth in our annual guest volume and have provided a premium lounge experience for international airline partners’ first and business class travellers.”

Guests at the second Club SJC location will enjoy the open space and natural light creating a welcoming and relaxing hospitality experience. Photography that features the natural beauty and cultural diversity of San Jose and the Silicon Valley region adorns the lounge throughout. Just like the city of San Jose offers a variety of unique experiences, The Club SJC’s five distinct zones offer travellers a variety of areas so they can get business done, relax with a refreshing speciality cocktail or grab a bite to eat at the bountiful buffet.

A Productivity Zone provides travellers in need of a workspace with a desk-height counter, ergonomic task chairs and an abundance of power and USB outlets. Guests looking for a space to take a quiet phone call or read can also take advantage of The Club’s high back “privacy” chairs.

A Relax Zone that features ultra-comfortable seating for guests looking to recharge during their travels. An abundance of power and USB outlets are available for all guests.
A Rest Zone that provides guests with a quiet space to kick up their feet in the lounge’s recliners and ottomans, featuring convenient reading lamps and power outlets.

A Replenish Zone provides an all-inclusive complementary offering, including a dining area with a buffet featuring hot breakfast, soups, sandwiches and salads and a full-service bar area that allows guests to enjoy cocktails and premium spirits. Guests can enjoy the tastes of the Silicon Valley region through artfully crafted cocktails and local beers, such as Sierra Nevada, Hazy IPA and Anchor Lager, along with the “Cali Orange Margarita.” The signature cocktail menu was developed exclusively for The Club by celebrated mixologist Kathy Casey, owner of The Liquid Kitchen. The Liquid Kitchen brings the kitchen into the bar by incorporating creativity and fresh, quality ingredients, focusing on crafting cocktails with layers of flavours that are appealing for every taste. The Club drinks feature house-made mixers crafted with fresh citrus and organic agave. Guests looking for non-alcoholic options can choose from a selection of sodas, teas and coffee, or utilize The Club’s “Hydration Station,” which offers thirst-quenching, healthy fruit- and herb-infused waters, along with the Vivreau Tap, which provides chilled still and sparkling water along with hot water for a cup of tea.

A Refresh Zone that provides a shower facility and private restrooms for all guests.

“We are excited to continue our partnership with Airport Dimensions and expand our airport lounge offerings with another Club location,” said John Aitken, director of aviation at Norman Y. Mineta San Jose International Airport. “The first Club SJC location has been extremely successful, with ever-increasing demand from our business and leisure travellers. Our decision to open a second Club will ensure that all SJC travellers have the opportunity to take advantage of a premium lounge experience.”
