Swissport with new lounges at Amsterdam Schiphol Airport
Swissport officially unveiled its latest, newly developed Aspire Lounge at Amsterdam Schiphol Airport last Thursday. In addition to the newly opened Aspire Lounge, Swissport, the world’s leading aviation services provider, was chosen to fully manage the newly opened Star Alliance Lounge, further expanding its hospitality services at the Dutch hub.
The new Aspire Lounge offers comfortable seating and a relaxing atmosphere for 180 guests set within 750 square meters of space in the heart of one of Europe’s busiest airports. Located on the third level of the Schengen area, the latest lounge in Swissport’s Aspire network welcomes guests irrespective of airline or class of travel and offers amenities that ensure each stay is rewarding.
The space has been developed in cooperation with Schiphol Airport, Star Alliance and DDOCK, an interior design company based locally. The modern layout ensures the new lounge is as relaxing as possible for all guests – be it business or leisure travellers. Among its amenities are access to free Wi-Fi, newspapers as well as privacy booths with personal lighting and power sockets for those that want to work or relax in peace. Further features at the new lounge include charging facilities at every seat, washrooms and baby change facilities for those travelling with families. A mix of complimentary food and beverage, adjusted seasonally, including a variety of vegetarian and vegan choices, is available throughout the day.
Passengers travelling in First or Business Class can gain access to the lounge through a partnered airline or can simply pre-book their space at www.executivelounges.com. The lounge will also welcome holders of Priority Pass and Dragon Pass.
