Cordogan, Clark and Associates worked with SAS Scandinavian Airlines officials and with Thomas Ericksson of Stockholm in creating the new SAS Business Class Lounge at O'Hare International Terminal, Chicago. A member of the Star Alliance, SAS operates from U.S. gateways in New York (Newark), Chicago, D.C., and Seattle. Named Best Business Class to the Nordic Countries by Business Travel readers, Scandinavian Airlines (SAS) is keenly attuned to passenger service and comfort.
The new SAS Business class service delivers a high level of comfort. Custom designed and built interior furnishings and finishes highlight a long, shallow space that features magnificent views of the airport runways through continuous windows. The floors are accented with Swedish limestone. At various points in the lounge, passengers are able to access the Internet and their corporate intranet through their laptops and PDAs. A kitchen/dining area features generous amenities. A private smoking room is also provided.
