Schiphol upgrades Lounge 2 with arrival of new luxury brands and concepts

Schiphol is redeveloping Lounge 2, the area located after the security check for passengers mainly flying to destinations outside of Europe. The catering and retail area is getting a new layout, and the passenger experience is at the heart of this project. More space is being made for new luxury brands, and a renewed and varied range of food, beverage and retail outlets. 

BULGARI opened the doors of its store at the airport on 18 March. By renewing its range of shops, Schiphol wants to continue to meet the needs of passengers and improve their travel experience. 

The renovation of Lounge 2 is part of a larger plan to make Schiphol attractive to passengers again: tastier and more sustainable food and beverages, great shops with an appealing range and an environment that emphasises Schiphol's standing as a home base for world travellers. We're also improving our range of offerings in the luxury segment, with the first big step being the arrival of top brands Louis Vuitton and BVLGARI in Lounge 2. We'll be creating space for this renewed range in phases, and the opening of BVLGARI is a significant milestone. We welcome passengers to our new Lounge 2.

Arthur Reijnhart, Executive Director Schiphol Commercial

I am thrilled to announce the grand opening of our newest BULGARI Boutique at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol. Our Boutique is not just a place to shop, as it is our mission to create a memorable experience for travellers from all around the world. We are dedicated to offering an elevated luxury shopping experience that mirrors the high-end environment and refinement synonymous with Lounge 2 and aligns seamlessly with the airport’s ambitious vision for renewal. We look forward to welcoming loyal and new clients and delighting them with exceptional service and the unique craftmanship of our iconic designs. Together let’s embark on this new chapter of bringing the eternal light of the Roman jeweler to the Netherlands and beyond.

New layout and renovation in phases  
During the renovation of Lounge 2, more than a thousand square meters of floor space will be reorganised and furnished. There will also be an additional eight hundred square meters of space. Existing catering establishments such as Café Coco are making way for sustainable and high-quality concepts such as Bubbles Seafood & Wine Bar restaurant. The seating areas in the lounge will also be redesigned and expanded. 

This phase of the renovation will last until the end of 2024. The lounge will remain available to passengers throughout the renovation. By carrying out some of the work at night and in different phases, the inconvenience for passengers, airlines and employees is kept to a minimum.
