Star Alliance Opens New Lounge At Amsterdam’s Schiphol

Star Alliance Opens New Lounge At Amsterdam’s Schiphol
Scott Dylan

Star Alliance unveiled a new lounge at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol. Travelers using eligible tickets on flights operated by Star Alliance members can access the lounge. The new lounge is situated on the Panorama Terrace level in the Schengen Departures area right next to the existing Aspire Lounge.

Will you be eligible to check out the Star Alliance’s new lounge at Amsterdam Schiphol Airport? Take a look at what you can expect if you do visit this lounge during an upcoming trip through Europe.

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.

    AMS needed something besides Aspire for Star Alliance flyers. However, I really wish that it would be available for arrivals to get a shower. Many times, I am transferring from AMS to a high speed train. (It has a train station – with a Thalys lounge – right in the airport.) I suspect, though, like the CDG T1 lounge, it will only be for departures. Now, if they would do something about BRU.

    Also, you mention that the CDG T1 is being renovated? It wasn’t last time I was there a couple of months ago. In fat, that seems a little odd as it was renovated not that many years ago, though admittedly it is already a little worn.

    Trying to understand the logic of Schengen side. A NA flyer arrives on UA or AC, crosses to Schengen for a Euro connection? Schengen doesn’t really work for UA or AC departures.
    I guess this is why 150 seats is large enough.

    SAS + LH + other EU Star pax would be more significant than the NA Star flights.

    I wonder if the author has actually been to any airline lounges or understands the airline market. He says “It offers unique features like a special storage area just for luggage, individual work booths, communal work tables and a relaxation zone” – anyone who thinks that ANY of these things are “unique” in airline lounges is manifestly unfit to be offering an opinion.

    I’m also rather dubious about the statement that access is available to first-class passengers – are there ANY first class *A flights between Schengen countries?
