Aspire Executive Lounges has opened the second oneworld lounge for the global airline alliance.

Following the opening of a first branded airport lounge in Korea in January of this year, oneworld has inaugurated a second lounge at Schiphol Airport in Amsterdam.

The lounge concept was developed in close cooperation with Aspire Executive Lounges, the lounge business of Swissport International AG, the global leader in aviation services.

Aspire Executive Lounges is responsible for the daily operation of the oneworld lounge.

At Schiphol Airport, Swissport has also opened its own redesigned and completely refurbished Aspire Executive Lounge.

To increase efficiency, the lounges share a kitchen where top chefs prepare fresh dishes and together with the lounge agents ensure the delivery of an unforgettable experience.

David Collyer, Global Vice President Executive Lounges at Swissport International AG said: “After the successful debut of the first oneworld lounge in Korea, we are pleased to support the expansion of oneworld airport lounges in Europe.

“I am delighted with the opening of our 69th Aspire Executive Lounge at Amsterdam Schiphol Airport and the progress we have made in sustainability terms.

“The new lounge is partly furnished with reused items from our previous lounge that were refurbished to our exacting standards contributing to a circular economy.

“In addition, Aspire Executive Lounges has recently committed to eliminating single-use plastic in all our airport lounges by 2025.”

Gerhard Girkinger, oneworld Vice President, Customer Experience, Delivery and Membership, said: “We have created a lounge that upholds our vision to make travel bright.

“Customers can expect a modern setting that blends refined fixtures and fittings with digital technologies and warm, ergonomic seating areas, offering a memorable travel experience”.
