Star Alliance Opens New Lounge at Rome Fiumicino Airport
Star Alliance customers travelling from Rome, can look forward to a new premium experience in the alliance’s new lounge at Fiumicino Airport.
The new Star Alliance Lounge, which opened its doors on Friday, June 29, welcomes eligible First and Business Class passengers and Star Alliance Gold Card holders.
“Our new Rome Lounge expands the network of Star Alliance branded lounges to seven and offers our customers flying from the ‘Eternal City’ a state of the art lounge experience”, said Christian Draeger, Vice President Customer Experience at Star Alliance.
At Fiumicino, Star Alliance has cooperated with Aviapartner and Aeroporti di Roma to refurbish an existing lounge space.
Located on the upper level of Boarding Zone D in Terminal 3, the lounge provides easy access to the departure gates for Alliance member carrier flights to European destinations in the Schengen Zone.
According to an announcement, all Star Alliance branded lounges are designed to provide a unique local experience. In Rome, Italian designer furniture gives an elegant, modern and fashionable look, along with functional spaces to work, relax or socialise in.
This goes hand in hand with an exciting Italian inspired culinary experience, ranging from a staffed bar and barista coffee station, to signature dishes.
Furthermore, free wifi is available throughout the lounge, with a mix of standard and USB power outlets ensuring that customers can recharge their electronic devices.
The lounge can accommodate around 130 guests and is open daily from 5.15 am to 9.15 pm.
In total 17 Star Alliance member carriers serve Rome, providing non-stop service to 25 destinations in 20 countries.
In order to further enhance its offer, Star Alliance is also developing a new lounge in Amsterdam, set to open its doors in early 2019. Moreover, the existing lounges in Nagoya and Paris Charles-de-Gaulle Airport will be refurbished, further improving the customer’s experience.
