Spaces Lounge and Panorama Restaurant open their doors at Schiphol

A first-class workspace and restaurant with wonderful views of the Panorama Terrace


Today, Spaces Lounge and the adjacent Panorama Restaurant open their doors at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol. Spaces – part of IWG, the world’s largest provider of flex offices – has joined forces with HMSHost Nederland -market leader in catering in airports, stations and shopping centres- to offer flex workspaces and meeting rooms at Schiphol, above Departure Hall 1. The new Panorama Restaurant offers an extensive range of food and drink options, and is next to the Spaces Lounge and Panorama Terrace. Both locations are in public areas, meaning that people can go there whether they’re flying or not.

Every traveller, whether it’s a business traveller, freelancer or group of colleagues looking for office or meeting space in the departure hall, can make use of the workspace for a fee. A Spaces membership is not required. Spaces features six fully- equipped work areas for more than one hundred professionals and four meeting rooms. HMSHost Nederland offers varied food and drinks options in the Lounge and Panorama Terrace Restaurant.

Spaces Lounge is great for transfer passengers who have a long wait. They can use the location to have meetings with their teams, for example, and thus make optimal use of their time at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol. Flex workspaces at airports and stations are the solution to a growing customer demand for places to work close to where they live. And they also want access to professional facilities when they are on the move. This new lounge at Schiphol is part of our plan to open at least 200 new flex offices in the Netherlands over the coming five years.

Gavin Phillips, Regional Vice President, IWG Benelux

With the return of business travellers, we saw the demand for airport facilities change. Together with Amsterdam Airport Schiphol and IWG, we have found a great way to offer travellers on the move work and meeting spaces, so that they can use their valuable time as efficiently as possible. The Spaces Lounge and Panorama Restaurant are accessible meeting places for travellers and guests who are visiting the airport.

Sytze van der Aa, Regional Managing Director HMSHost Europe

We are extremely proud to open both locations that focus on different target groups. Flexible office space at the airport means that professionals can be productive wherever they are. Whether they need a local office space, or want to use their waiting or transfer time optimally while on a business trip. The adjacent Panorama Restaurant is a fantastic addition with a vision to also offer business travellers and other individuals a place to meet up. But it’s definitely a place where families and plane spotters can relax and enjoy views of the Panorama Terrace, runways and departing and arriving planes too.
