A company is investing more than $1 million in a 2,500-square-foot Escape Lounge at Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport.

MAG USA, a Chicago-headquartered company, is developing the lounge. 

“This Escape Lounge will allow us to offer all passengers a premium sanctuary after the security checkpoint and before boarding their flight,” said Dave Edwards, GSP’s president and CEO. “It’s important for us to create an enjoyable airport experience from ticket purchase to destination. This lounge will contribute to that experience.”

A local chef, using locally sourced ingredients wherever possible, develops food offerings. GSP reported its search for an upstate chef is underway.

The lounge, offering single pass entry, $40-45, will open in the fall. It will include hot and cold food and beverage choices, casual seating, high-speed Wi-Fi and current flight information.

“We are thrilled to be a part of the continued expansion in passenger amenities at Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport,” said Rosemarie Andolino, president and CEO of MAG USA. “Our Escape Lounge will deliver the flavors of the local community which has firmly placed itself on the map as a foodie destination.”

“GSP is excited to work with a respected partner, like MAG, while creating a unique experience for our passengers that will celebrate the South Carolina Upstate’s cuisine,” said Scott Carr, GSP vice president of commercial business and communications. Greenville-based Mavin Construction is the contractor for the project.

MAG USA has Lounges open in Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport (MSP), Oakland International Airport (OAK), Reno-Tahoe International Airport (RNO) and Bradley International Airport (BDL).
