Following the opening of their first AMBAAR Club lounge at Viracopos International Airport in December 2021, airport lounge operator and travel experience expert Airport Dimensions and VIP lounge operator AMBAAR Lounge have opened the concept at two further renowned Brazilian airports this month. Passengers at Fortaleza International Airport (FOR) and Porto Alegre International Airport (POA) will now have the opportunity to experience AMBAAR Club. Both lounges will provide guests with a range of services in a comfortable and contemporary environment that celebrates the heritage of the local area.
The AMBAAR Club POA combines high-quality design with a host of facilities to make the travel experience more relaxing and convenient. Private rooms for calls and meetings will be complemented by an exclusive coffee bar area, buffet and cocktail bar. The lounge design has been inspired by local themes of the surrounding Rio Grande do Sul area, with an emphasis on wood and leather with highlights in rich shades of red, yellow and green that reflect the state’s flag. The result is a space that evokes the cozy environment of a country house typical of the mountain cities of the state.
AMBAAR Club FOR pays homage to the culture of Brazil’s northeastern Ceará state. Carefully considered details such as a vibrant color scheme provide a warm and welcoming ambience, while hammocks and strategic lighting encourage the guest to daydream of the city’s relaxing beaches and the balmy northeastern Brazilian sun.
A complementary menu offers an extensive selection of international and locally-inspired food and beverages, as well as a wide range of vegan and vegetarian options. Visitors can choose from regional favorites such as canjica (Brazilian corn), curau de milho verde (green corn pudding) and brigadeiros (Brazilian chocolate truffles), and freshly baked Brazilian cheese bread. AMBAAR Club FOR and AMBAAR Club POA will both operate from 6am to 10pm. They will offer a range of comfortable individual and group seating options, with Ambaar Club FOR offering seating capacity for 108 guests and Ambaar Club POA able to accommodate 170 seated passengers at any one time. Families will be well catered for with children’s play areas, while co-working areas and private booths allow business travelers to work in a relaxed setting.
AMBAAR Club lounges will welcome guests from all airlines. It will also be available to members of Priority Pass, the world’s largest independent airport lounge access program providing access to over 1,300 lounges and airport experiences, which is part of Airport Dimensions’ parent company, Collinson.
