British Airways unveils new lounge at Schiphol in Amsterdam

British Airways has opened the latest of its revamped lounges, this time at Amsterdam’s Schiphol airport.

The new business class lounge will measure 400sqm and accommodate up to 105 guests.

The new lounge, which was designed by international interiors group Graven, will reflect the style and elegance of the airline’s flagship Galleries lounges at Heathrow Terminal 5.

It will feature contemporary furnishings from Boss and Morgan using Andrew Muirhead leathers and Osborne and Little fabrics.


There will be a deli area for light dining and a stylish bar with complementary wines, spirits and soft drinks.

The new design scheme uses the very latest in surface finishes from British designer Giles Miller, Foscarini and Mooi Sphere lighting, and features an Italian herringbone floor.

The move is part of a major transformation programme at the Dutch airport, which is set to further improve the customer experience.

Power points are available at most of the seats around the lounge to enable customers to work from their own personal devices and they will have the ability to print wirelessly to a printer in the lounge.

The new lounge is located with views over the runway so customers can watch the aircraft come and go at the busy airport.

This is the latest British Airways lounge to receive a revamp with other recent refurbishments at Glasgow, Belfast, Edinburgh, Cape Town and Washington airports.

British Airways is investing more than £5 billion in new aircraft, smarter cabins, elegant lounges, and new technologies to make life more comfortable in the air and on the ground.
