Ambaar Lounge opens new VIP lounges at Salvador Bahia Airport

There will be two new lounges, one in the public area and another in the restricted area for customers who board domestic and international flights.

A reference in construction and management of VIP lounges, Ambaar Lounge was invited by the French VINCI Airports, the largest private airport operator in the world, to inaugurate a new project at Salvador Bahia Airport, an important gateway to the Brazilian Northeast.

With more than 20 years of experience in the aviation sector, Ambaar Lounge arrives in Salvador with two new VIP rooms. After the successful administration of the Star Alliance GRU Lounge and the expansion of its network of VIP lounges at other airports, the company will be responsible for the creation, construction and management of a pre-departure lounge and another for mixed use, that is, at the same time domestic and international after X-ray control.

Ambaar Lounge takes its DNA to the capital of Bahia, which combines sophisticated and exquisite projects with excellent service, a welcoming, humanized and highly trained team, attention to detail and a high standard of service recognized internationally.

As in other lounges, the company launches the concept of connecting to the local culture and identity and using it as a source of inspiration for its way of receiving and captivating, its decoration, its furniture and its cuisine. In this project, Bahia and its poetry are the main line that will guide the development of the concept of the lounges.

With a vocation to serve both leisure and business tourists, the Ambaar Domestic and International VIP lounge in Salvador will have a large space that favors passengers' comfort and relaxation. The pre-boarding room, on the other hand, will have all the amenities to serve diplomats, authorities, businessmen, executives and celebrities seeking privacy, where they can also count on a meeting room.
