Gander boasts a spacious international lounge where passengers on short stop-overs may rest without going through "entry into Canada" formalities. In the background can be seen part of the 69 foot mural, a tribute to flight by Saskatchewan artist Kenneth Lochhead. Gander airport sets a bright new trend in Canadian air terminals.
