New Star Alliance lounge for Rome

A rush of recent activity on the airport lounge front has seen a new facility for premium passengers travelling from Rome in the shape of a new Star Alliance Lounge for eligible First and Business Class passengers and Gold Card holders.

The lounge, on the upper level of Boarding Zone D in Terminal 3, provides easy access to the departure gates for Alliance member airlines’ flights to European destinations in the Schengen Zone.

All Star Alliance-branded lounges are designed to provide a local atmosphere. The Rome outlet also has free wi-fi throughout, with standard and USB power outlets for recharging electronic devices, plus a private space for making phone calls.

In addition to member airlines’ own lounges and those operated by third parties, Star Alliance now has seven branded lounges – Buenos Aires, Los Angeles, Nagoya, Paris CDG, Rio de Janeiro, Rome FCO and São Paulo.

The alliance is also developing a new lounge in Amsterdam, scheduled to open in early 2019, while the existing facilities in Nagoya and Paris CDG will be refurbished, further improving the customer’s experience. The Rome lounge can accommodate 130 guests and is open daily from 05:15 to 21:15.
