Passengers travelling in all cabins on Star Alliance member airlines can now pay to access the Star Alliance lounge at Amsterdam Schiphol (AMS) airport.
This is in addition to the free access for Star Alliance Gold members, and First Class and Business Class passengers.
This is the fifth among the six Star Alliance-branded lounges to offer paid access, after the Star Alliance lounges in Rome (FCO) Airport, Rio De Janeiro (GIG) Airport, Buenos Aires’ Ezeiza International Airport (EZE), and Los Angeles International Airport (LAX).
Currently, 14 Star Alliance member airlines operate flights from Amsterdam to 20 destinations in 16 countries.
The lounge can accommodate up to 150 and is located airside in Departures Hall 2 after security clearance for the Schengen Area.
The lounge offers free Wi-Fi, personal work booths, a communal worktable, a serviced bar and a range of hot and cold meals.
How it works
Passengers can pre-book and buy a voucher for lounge access on Star Alliance’s website. Access is subject to availability at the time of booking.
If they get to make a booking, they’ll receive a confirmation email with a QR code valid for the day and selected. At the airport, they scan this QR code at the lounge entrance to get in.
There is only one charge – 50 euros per passenger for up to three hours.
Passengers can get a 5% discount if a member of a Star frequent flyer scheme – that’ll save each passenger a whopping 2.50 euros.
Star Alliance VP Customer Experience Christian Draeger:
“We are pleased to announce that our Amsterdam lounge has become the latest Star Alliance-branded lounge to offer pay-per-use entry.
.”With this, all passengers passing through Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport on Star Alliance carriers have the option to relax in our stylish, well-appointed lounge, regardless of cabin class or membership status.
“The lounge is especially convenient for passengers travelling within the Schengen zone who want to kick back and enjoy a meal or get some work done comfortably before they board their flight.”
