Description courtesy of Star Alliance:
The Rio de Janeiro lounge, the newest addition to the Star Alliance lounge line-up, offers beautiful views across the airport and beyond to famous Rio landmarks such as its downtown area, the Sugar Loaf Mountain and the imposing statue of Christ the Redeemer.
Its design incorporates natural Brazilian woods, stone and concrete elements to reflect the architectural heritage of the city. Greenery and splashes of colour reflect the city’s close relationship with nature. Handmade Brazilian furniture pieces from renowned designers can also be enjoyed in the lounge.
The area offers seating for over 150 guests. It is located on level 3 of the new International Departures pier, after passing through passport control and duty free and before the departure gates. Guests can reach the lounge via escalators or lifts, following the airport signage to Lounges.
