The Star Alliance lounge at Amsterdam Schiphol airport is now open to pay-per-use customers.

Subject to availability passengers can now pre-book access to the lounge for a cost of €50 for three hours, regardless of membership status or cabin class.

Star Alliance also said that “passengers will also enjoy a discount if they are a member of a Star Alliance member airline’s frequent flyer programme”.

Guests can pre-book and purchase passes on the Star Alliance website. They will receive a confirmation email with a QR code valid for the day and time selected, which they can then scan at the lounge entrance.

The lounge is located airside in Departures Hall 2 after security clearance for the Schengen Area. It can accommodate up to 150 guests and features Dutch furniture and art, free wifi, personal work booths, a communal worktable, a bar along with dining and relaxation areas. Currently, 14 Star Alliance member airlines operate flights from the airport, connecting 20 destinations in 16 countries.

The group’s Amsterdam Schiphol lounge is the fifth to offer paid-for access, joining Rome Fiumicino, Ezeiza International in Buenos Aires, Rio de Janeiro and Los Angeles International airports.

Star Alliance VP customer experience Christian Draeger said:

“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.”
