The oneworld alliance and Swissport have opened new lounges at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol (AMS). Both lounges are located in Lounge 2 at AMS, offering travellers flying to non-Schengen destinations a luxurious place to relax.

With its opening at Schiphol, the oneworld alliance is introducing its first European lounge. The luxury lounge is 473sqm and offers a wide choice of stylish seats in a bright and contemporary setting. The design by D/DOCK features a fully branded oneworld environment, featuring subtle references to Amsterdam. An example is the lighting – the lights are inspired by the street lanterns along Amsterdam’s iconic canals.

“We’ve developed a contemporary, premium lounge experience with a design, features and furnishings that pay tribute to life in the Netherlands,” said Jochem Straatman, Art Director, D/DOCK. “This luxury lounge experience makes travelling simple, relaxing and enjoyable.”

The oneworld Lounge, located in the non-Schengen area, is situated just a 10-minute walk from the gates used by alliance member airlines. Aspire Executive Lounges, Swissport’s airport lounge brand, is responsible for the day-to-day running of the space.

In addition to being responsible for daily management of the oneworld Lounge, Swissport has also upgraded and opened its Aspire Lounge. This lounge can be booked by anyone flying to a non-Schengen destination. To make things more efficient, both lounges share a kitchen where chefs prepare fresh meals.

The design of the Swissport lounge also includes subtle references to Amsterdam and the Netherlands. Travellers are welcomed by eye-catching, and impactful gestures. Swissport has expanded workspace options for business travellers. In addition, with sustainability being an important basic principle, the new lounge contains reused furnishings from the old lounge.
