Following a new design concept that debuted in 2018, the carefully curated lounge warmly welcomes guests with an ideas space to rest or work before their flight. The carefully laid out lounge has been expanded to 327 square meters, offering areas to meet the needs of individual customers. The center of the lounge features a lively bar where customers can socialize or enjoy a fine selection of wines, spirits or soft drinks.
