KLM has announced it has reopened its European Schengen Crown Lounge to passengers at Schiphol, the company said.
The KLM Crown Lounge (Non-Schengen) remained open to customers, offering them an opportunity to continue to use the most important facilities, making KLM the only major European airline to keep its hub lounge open from the beginning of March through to the end of June. The more limited food & beverage services are now being cautiously expanded to the full‑service offering.
In the wake of the coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak, KLM was compelled to close its Schengen Lounge in March. In accordance with guidelines published by the Dutch health authorities (RIVM), the Schengen Lounge has reopened to customers travelling within Europe throughout the week from 06:00 until 12:00 hours.
Passengers travelling internationally with KLM or one of its partner airlines are welcome to use all the facilities available at the KLM Non-Schengen Crown Lounge. Only the Blue Restaurant remains closed for the time being. KLM reopened its fully refurbished Non-Schengen Crown Lounge last year. The lounge offers visitors an unforgettable experience based on top-notch service levels, new food & beverage concepts and the application of innovative technologies.
