Travelers sit on a colorful sitting area

KLM Royal Dutch Airlines customers can now visit the line’s new non-Schengen Crown Lounge at Schiphol. The Amsterdam airport lounge is still undergoing renovations and will fully open next summer.

Located between the E and F Piers at Schiphol, the lounge now boasts a new entrance on Holland Boulevard. After ascending an escalator or elevator, guests are greeted by personal lounge assistants and can enter the main lounge by scanning their boarding passes. The lounge facilities can be found on the second and third floors.

Previously offering 800 seats and 3,600 square meters of space, the new lounge will nearly double these numbers, providing 1,500 seats and 6,800 square meters. Featuring new décor, the upgraded lounge now hosts new food and drink concepts, a redesigned kitchen and the latest technologies and innovations.

“KLM aims to offer the most attractive lounge in the world; a destination in itself,” said Boet Kreiken, the EVP of Customer Experience at KLM. “The new lounge concept ties in seamlessly with KLM’s strategy, centering on providing the ultimate hospitality experience, innovation and perfect customer service.”
