Virgin America, the California-based domestic airline, has launched its first domestic lounge with the opening of the stylish new Virgin America Loft at Los Angeles International Airport's (LAX) Terminal 3.

Not to be confused with sister-branded airline Virgin Atlantic's premium international Clubhouses designed for longer-haul travelers, the new Virgin America Loft will offer Virgin America's guests a sleek and modern retreat within LAX.

The Virgin America Loft extends the airline's signature cabin experience into the airport space with amenities like a cocktail bar and dining experience with a Virgin twist - including a "Lofty Libations" artisan cocktail selection.

As the only airline to offer both power outlets near every seat and in-flight WiFi on every aircraft, the Virgin America Loft is equipped with ample power sources and complimentary WiFi.

"We're proud to unveil our first lounge space at LAX, which was designed for our growing base of loyal business and leisure travelers," said Jim Davis, Vice President of Airports and Guest Services at Virgin America. "Elevating the journey for travelers beyond just getting from point A to Point B is what Virgin America is all about - and the Virgin America Loft at LAX extends that philosophy into the airport space."

The Virgin America Loft is located past security at Terminal 3 of LAX on the second level - conveniently near the Virgin America gates. You can access the Virgin America Loft by taking the stairs or elevator, both located near the food court.

"Travelers seek out Virgin America for the stylish, upscale experience onboard - and we hoped to create a lounge that reflects the modern and sleek design of our planes and our unique brand style," said Jesse McMillin, Creative Director at Virgin America. "Travel can be the most transformative experience and we wanted to design the space to help bring that excitement and sense of style back to the airport experience."

Virgin America flies to San Francisco, Los Angeles, New York, Washington D.C. (IAD), Las Vegas, San Diego, Seattle, Boston, Fort Lauderdale, Orlando, Dallas-Fort Worth, Los Cabos, Cancun, Chicago, Puerto Vallarta, Palm Springs, Philadelphia, Portland and Washington D.C.'s Reagan National (DCA) and starting April 2, 2013, Newark.
