Star Alliance Expands Paid Lounge Access 

Star Alliance has expanded its paid lounge access service at the Rio De Janeiro (GIG) airport. Along with complimentary access for Star Alliance Gold customers and passengers in eligible cabin classes on Star Alliance member airlines, the lounge will now also welcome all other Star Alliance passengers regardless of membership status or cabin class, for a nominal fee.

For those who can already access the lounge, this now means they have the option to purchase access vouchers for their family members, friends or colleagues travelling together, so that their entire party can relax together before a flight.

This is the third amongst Star Alliance’s six branded lounges to offer paid access. Earlier, the service was launched at the alliance’s lounge in Ezeiza International Airport (EZE), Buenos Aires, and at its lounge in Los Angeles International Airport (LAX).

Located on level 3 of the new international departures pier, the Star Alliance Rio De Janeiro lounge offers impressive views of famous landmarks such as Rio’s downtown area, the Sugar Loaf Mountain and the majestic statue of Christ the Redeemer. Its interiors reflect the rich architectural heritage of Rio, complemented by impressive handmade Brazilian furniture pieces crafted by local designers. The lounge also offers refreshments inspired by hearty local flavours and can accommodate 150 guests.

Passengers can pre-book and purchase lounge access vouchers on Star Alliance’s website, Subject to availability at the time of booking, they would receive a confirmation email with a QR code valid for the day(s) and time(s) selected. At the airport, they can simply scan this QR code at the lounge entrance and walk in.

Vouchers are priced from US$55 for three hours of use. Passengers will also enjoy a discount if they are a member of a Star Alliance member airline’s frequent flyer program.
