Little details that matter

Changes to access the National Bank lounge 

Due to the current situation, new measures have been put in place to meet the requirements of health authorities:

  • The capacity of the VIP lounge has been reduced to respect social distancing between each group of guests. 
  • All guests over 5 years old must wear a mask. 
  • Hand sanitizing stations have been added. 
  • All surfaces are sanitized frequently. 
  • Meals included: Since our buffet is currently closed, a choice of main courses, side dishes and desserts are served at the tables. Guests can order an extra portion if they wish. They can also order individual snacks.  
  • Drinks included: Guests may order alcoholic beverages from the Lounge staff. Non-alcoholic beverages are still available in self-service.  
  • Newspapers and magazines: As paper formats are no longer available, guests can now read digital newspapers and magazines on their own mobile device with free access to the PressReader® platform.
