My flight was set for the mid-afternoon, and after the morning’s events, I headed up to the airport. I returned the rental car, happy to have made it out of the snow belt, and headed to the mostly deserted departures hall of the Halifax airport.

Surprisingly, there was a Clearwater fresh lobster vendor immediately in the airport. I can’t recall ever seeing a lobster kiosk in an airport, let alone fresh lobster tanks. These lobsters have a view of the Air Canada check in agents!

Accessing the Maple Leaf Lounge:

I located the check in desks and eventually headed through security to the Air Canada Maple Leaf Lounge.

Inside the Air Canada Maple Leaf Lounge Halifax:

This version of the Air Canada Maple Leaf Lounge is one of the smaller and more tired ones in the system. It seems like all the attention and love have been focused on Canada’s major business cities such as Toronto, Calgary and Vancouver, leaving these smaller outposts in need of renovation and repair. The lounge had standard Maple Leaf Lounge fare, although the color scheme was stuck in the early turn of the century with browns and greys.

Nothing like a peaceful fish tank in a Canadian Lounge at the start of winter in Atlantic Canada. . .

Food and Beverage:

Summary of the Air Canada Maple Leaf Lounge Halifax:

The Air Canada Maple Leaf Lounge in Halifax was one of the older outposts in the Maple Leaf Lounge system. Your time here won’t be spent enjoying wonderful views or any spa treatments. However, it does have enough food and beverage to keep you entertained before your flight, as long as you’re not expecting anything else (except for a peaceful fish tank).
