A new club has opened at Raleigh-Durham International Airport that is open to all customers no matter the airline they are flying or have an affiliation with.
The Club at RDU, located in Terminal 1 across from gate 21, offers complimentary snacks, including alcoholic beverages, as well as PCs, printers, phones, free Wi-Fi and satellite television.
The price for a day pass is $29.95, though the club says it is offering a special initial rate of $24.95.
The RDU Airport Authority receives $5 for every paid visitor to the club, spokeswoman Mindy Hamlin said.
After one full year of operations, the authority will also receive 25 percent of any operating profits generated by the club, she said.
The club also offers special programs for frequent flyers, corporations and group travel and accepts members of Priority Pass, the independent airport lounge program.
The club is operated by Airport Lounge Development, Inc. The company also operates a similar club at the Dallas-Fort Worth airport.
Club at RDU is open from 5:30 a.m. to 7 p.m.
It will feature art from local artists.
