KLM Unveils Remodeled Crown Lounge at Houston Airport

KLM Royal Dutch Airlines has unveiled its newly renovated KLM Crown Lounge in Houston’s George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH) as part of a global project of enhancing the comfort and customer experience of its international lounges. One of just four KLM lounges in the world, situated within Terminal D of the airport, the 3,962-square-foot lounge now offers 100 seats.

The main transformations in the lounge include new flooring, wallpaper, fixtures and upgrades to the bathroom. The lounge has also been refitted with new furniture, incorporating sustainability with the inclusion of long-lasting materials and circular elements such as eco-leather and recycled materials.

A signature KLM Delft Blue house display will showcase the various miniature houses from over the years, each depicting a real Dutch building. The houses serve as a unique gift for the World Business Class passengers traveling on international flights, with the newest one, house No. 104, being released October 7, 2023. Guests will also find a series of wall art inspired by the three cabins and in-flight catering experience that awaits them onboard.

Visitors can enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner meals through a self-service buffet, with hot and cold food options, salads and daily soups. Cold and hot drinks are also available including sodas, juices, wine, beer and spirits.

The KLM Crown Lounge welcomes qualifying business passengers from KLM, Air France, and their SkyTeam partners, as well as Sky Team Elites, Priority Pass, Dragon Pass and Lounge Key. The lounge operates between 6 a.m. and 9 p.m.

Passengers from Houston will be able to fly the 787-9 Dreamliner, which will begin operations from Houston this winter, starting October 29. Travelers connecting through Amsterdam are encouraged to experience the KLM Crown Lounge at Schiphol Airport. KLM’s Crown Lounge at Toronto also underwent a recent renovation as part of KLM’s wider investment into the lounge experience.
