The new lounge from the Star Alliance in Amsterdam can fit up to 150 guests at once. It offers unique features like a special storage area just for luggage, individual work booths, communal work tables and a relaxation zone. In addition, there are plenty of charging points scattered throughout the lounge. No modern lounge would be complete without a substantial dining area. Schiphol’s new lounge features dining areas and several bar areas. There is actually a full wine bar for guests to enjoy. Guests can also enjoy a large selection of on-tap beers. The lounge offers a buffet with both hot and cold options.
Travelers looking to make their time at Schiphol’s newest lounge productive can take advantage of the available business facilities. Guests can use free Wi-Fi and take care of printing and scanning documents while inside the lounge. The new Star Alliance lounge in Amsterdam is available to first-class and business-class passengers flying on flights that are operated by Star Alliance member airlines. In addition, anyone with a Star Alliance Gold card can enjoy access. Eligible paying members of the Air Canada Maple Leaf Worldwide Club and the Unite Club program can also enter.
Star Alliance is busy upgrading its lounges around the world. A refurbished version of the existing lounge at Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport is set to be unveiled at some point in the coming months. The alliance is hoping that it can provide built-in value to travelers who choose to book flights with member airlines by using lounge access as a carrot. The decision comes at a good time. Many lounges around the world are becoming congested. Some have even been forced to turn away qualified visitors due to crowding issues. You may remember reading details regarding how Priority Pass lounges have been turning away guests in recent months. The same has been happening at Qantas lounges in places like Singapore.
