KLM opened a non-Schengen Crown Lounge with increased capacity, located between the E and F piers at Schiphol Airport.
The “KLM House” is “the largest boutique lounge in the world,” is immediately noticeable by its illuminated glass wall adorned with some five thousand Delft blue miniature houses.
Visitors to the lounge take the escalator to the top and embark on a journey back in time past these iconic World Business Class gifts.
Personal lounge assistants welcome them into the house. They can gain quick access by scanning their boarding pass at the self-service machines.
The white marble lounge desk takes the shape of a giant KLM logo and the lounge offers a great view of the runways, piers, and the KLM fleet in the background.
The lounge now covers an area of 6,800 square metres with about a thousand full-free-service seats. What’s more, there are about two hundred exclusive seats in the Blue Bar and Restaurant with equally exclusive levels of service.
Customers can pay with their Flying Blue miles there. By doubling the capacity, KLM is taking our expected growth in visitor numbers into account. It’s quite a great feat. We are offering our customers and those of our partner airlines an unforgettable experience – a crowning achievement to our hundredth anniversary.
