More recently, Star Alliance opened another one of its own lounges in Rome’s Leonardo da Vinci–Fiumicino Airport (FCO). It’s available to all business and first class passengers flying on any one of the member airlines with routes within Europe.
If you’ve been to one of the Star Alliance lounges in Rio, LA or Buenos Aires, you will notice the similarity when compared to the new one in FCO. Nonetheless, Star Alliance has made modifications in order to suit the local vibe by adding furniture from Italian designers, creating a sleek and trendy atmosphere.
To access the Star Alliance lounge, head over Terminal 3, Zone D, where you will be greeted by a spacious area that can fit up to 130 travelers. It can get busy, so make sure to get there as soon as possible to grab a seat.
When it comes to the food, you will have the ability to wine and dine on some delicious Italian meals that are prepared on-demand. Plus, you can pair your favorite dish with a drink of your choice from the open, fully-stocked bar. But food is not the only amenity.
So if you’ve come to the new Star Alliance lounge to get work done before a flight, then there’s a place to do that. And for those who just want to relax, there are lounge chairs and sections that are set up in a way to help you unwind. There’s even a private area where you can make phone calls, which won’t disturb other travelers around you who are trying to work or rest.
And don’t worry, you can keep your devices charged at all times as there are more than enough USB and AC ports throughout.
The Star Alliance lounge can be accessed from 5:15am to 9:15pm, and is open for those holding a Star Alliance Gold frequent flyer status in addition to those flying in business and first class on one of the Star Alliance airlines.
But this is not the end of the Star Alliance lounges, another new one is scheduled to open next year in Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, and upgrades are coming to the ones in Chubu Centrair International Airport in Tokoname, and Charles de Gaulle Airport in Paris.
