Alaska Airlines Reopens Renovated D Concourse Lounge in Seattle
Alaska Airlines has revealed that its most popular lounge at Seattle’s D Concourse is set to reopen after a massive makeover lasting more than five months. This is the site’s first full renovation in nearly 20 years, putting it on par with the N Concourse and C Concourse Lounges. Service resumes tomorrow on Wednesday, June 21.
The newly revamped space has 50% more seating including the popular loungers on the mezzanine level for sitting back, relaxing and taking in terrific views.
A new barista station is conveniently located on the first level so members and guests can grab a quick, hand-crafted espresso beverage or brewed coffee to go, or they can simply hang out for a bit.
There’s a better layout that’s easier to move through with a proper bar space to order complimentary craft brews, and West Coast wines and spirits. You will also find expanded hot food options that are served throughout the day.
The redesigned Lounge features artwork by influential Coast Salish artist and renowned advocate for cultural artists, Louie Gong (Nooksack). His unique style merges traditional Coast Salish art with influences from his mixed heritage and urban environment to create work that resonates widely across communities and cultures.
These upgrades are part of a $30 million investment in improvements in the past five years. In addition to making substantial improvements at the D Concourse Lounge, Alaska Airlines also expanded the C Concourse Lounge in Seattle by 3,000 square feet and added 60 more seats. In Portland, there’s a new patio space at Concourse C Lounge along with an ‘express lounge’ at the newly renovated Concourse B. That’s a 60% increase in Lounge seating at both airports.
And there’s more coming. In San Francisco, the airline is finalizing plans for a new lounge at Harvey Milk Terminal 1 as it makes the move to that part of the airport in 2024. The all-new Flagship Lounge for Portland is currently scheduled to open in the 2025-26 timeframe with more than 10,000 square feet of space.
