Lounge access policy

If you are a Business Class passenger, a Flying Blue Platinum or Gold member, or a SkyTeam Elite Plus passenger, you can enjoy all our lounge facilities before your departure or during transfer.

Lounge access

Just make sure you are travelling on that same day on a KLM-operated flight, an international SkyTeam-operated flight or a domestic SkyTeam-operated flight that is connected with a SkyTeam-operated international flight.

All the information about opening hours and location can be found in our Lounge Finder.

Note: For the time being, we have adjusted the access policy for KLM Crown Lounge 52, as we are in the middle of an ambitious renovation project (see second table).

Adjusted access to KLM Crown Lounge 52 during peak hours

We are in the middle of revamping the interior of KLM Crown Lounge 52 (non-Schengen) until the summer of 2019. This means we need to scale down the number of visitors during peak hours, from 7:30 to 11:00 AM. Please check the schedule below. In the Lounge you may hear some construction noises. Sorry about this.
