Star Alliance has opened a new lounge at Rio de Janeiro Galeao Tom Jobim International airport.

Located in Terminal 2 Departures, the 600 sqm facility is managed by airport lounge company Plaza Premium Group, which has recently opened two other lounges at the Rio airport.

Hong Kong based architects MSA handled its design using locally-sourced wood, stone and concrete features to reflect the country’s architectural heritage, and elements of greenery and local plant life introduced throughout.
