KLM Opens Non-Schengen Crown Lounge at Schiphol Airport
KLM Royal Dutch Airlines has officially opened its completely renovated non-Schengen Crown Lounge at Schiphol Airport. The new lounge offers visitors an unforgettable experience, new food and beverage ideas, and innovative technologies.
The lounge is located between the E and F piers at Schiphol. The “KLM House” is immediately noticeable by its illuminated glass wall adorned with some five thousand Delft blue miniature houses.
In the Polder landscape, customers can work ideally and relax at the same time. The carpet is reminiscent of the Netherlands’ vast pastureland. And a 110-metre LED light wall simulates the Dutch sky. The lighting adapts to the time of day and includes a beautiful sunset.
In the lively City landscape, customers can enjoy “live” cooking, a Heineken Bar, specially designed by Heineken, and a coffee bar with a barista. The new food and beverage concept is characterised by stylish, high-quality, and fresh seasonal products.
The Sea offers everything customers need to recharge their batteries during their journey. The area has twenty free showers, which customers can reserve in advance at the lounge’s self-service kiosks.
The luxury sleeping cabins offer privacy, tranquillity, and comfort – for a fee – using Flying Blue miles, or three hours for EUR 49,50. It’s the perfect place to close your eyes and rest during a transfer or a long journey. In the future the showers and sleeping cabins will be equipped with digital allocation systems using QR codes.
The striking Dutch Mountain zone offers visitors a variety of options for working and having fun, from a TV room to a DJ stand for special events. It devotes attention to Dutch design and offers historical attributes from KLM’s heritage.
Sky is an exclusive area on the second floor. At the explicit request of KLM customers, Sky’s high-end setting offers a terrace with a beautiful view of Schiphol Airport. You can enjoy excellent meals and a range of drinks in Blue by KLM, a restaurant and adjacent bar for an extra fee.
KLM’s non-Schengen Crown Lounge reflects the airline’s image: comfort, customer focus, and innovation. New food and beverage ideas, digital support such as self-service access, and the lounge staff service all contribute to the personal experience.
