KLM Unveils Revamped Crown Lounge in Toronto
On September 12, 2023, KLM unveiled its renovated Crown Lounge in the international departures area of Terminal 3 at Toronto Pearson International Airport (YYZ). The lounge was formerly known as the Air France/KLM Lounge Toronto, but is now branded as the KLM Crown Lounge.
The lounge, which has a capacity for up to 161 guests in its 575-square-metre space, has received substantial renovations over the past few months, designed to streamline space and light.
The furniture throughout the lounge has been updated as well, and features the distinctive KLM blue hues.
In the lounge, you’ll enjoy plenty of natural light with a 50-foot-wide window. There are a number of ergonomic seating arrangements available for guests, as well as a redesigned dining area.
You’ll also find an entire collection of KLM’s signature Delft blue houses in the lounge, with 103 variations and counting.
Lounge guests can choose from hot and cold buffet options, as well as a selection of beer, wine, and spirits.
The lounge is open daily between 9:30am and 10pm.

Fortunately, passengers departing on international flights from Terminal 3 at Toronto Pearson International Airport (YYZ) can access the lounge through a variety of means.
Passengers travelling in business class on an Air France, KLM, or SkyTeam flight may access the lounge.
As it stands, KLM operates up to 13 flights to Toronto during the summer travel months, as well as 11 during winter.
Anyone with SkyTeam Elite status travelling in any class of service may also access the lounge on a complimentary basis.
