RENO, Nev. (KOLO) - Passengers traveling through Reno-Tahoe International Airport will soon have a new way to pass the time.

The airport plans to open its first-ever passenger lounge by winter 2017. The Escape Lounge will be a common-use facility open to the public for a fee, as well as American Express Platinum Card holders as one of their amenities.

It will cost passengers $45, with a $5 discount if you book ahead of time.

The 1,700-square-foot space will be located past security on the connector between the B and C concourses. It will feature a menu from a prominent local chef, as well as a complimentary bar with locally-sourced wines and beers.

There will also be high-speed internet and plenty of charging stations.

The lounge will be designed, built and operated by MAG USA. This will be the company's fourth Escape Lounge. Similar lounges are now open at Oakland International Airport, Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport, and Bradley International Airport.
