Ambaar Club lounge opens at Viracopos

Airport Dimensions and Ambaar Lounge have opened their first Ambaar Club lounge at Viracopos International Airport (VCP) in Brazil.

The new lounge marks Airport Dimensions’ debut in the South American market, with two further Ambaar Club lounges already in development.

The lounge is located airside in the domestic departures hall, offering a complementary beverage bar and café service with a menu featuring a number of regionally inspired dishes. It will operate from 6am to 10pm and has capacity for over 100 passengers.

Nancy Knipp, president, Americas at Airport Dimensions, said: “The launch of Ambaar Club forms part of our ongoing plans to expand our global lounge network with innovative concepts that deliver memorable experiences for guests and commercial benefits for airports. We’re proud to be bringing this exciting brand to passengers just months after announcing our partnership with Ambaar Lounge.”

The design of the new lounge draws from the culture and heritage of the surrounding Campinas region. Production expansion of two significant agricultural crops – sugar cane and coffee – accelerated the rapid industrialisation of the area. The importance of these two crops is demonstrated by their representation on the city’s coat of arms, and it is the deep, earthy tones of this emblem that form the palette of the Ambaar Club’s design.

Bernardo Claro da Fonseca, CEO and founder of Ambaar Lounge, commented: “We’re excited to be opening our first Ambaar Club lounge at one of Brazil’s leading airports. Ambaar Club customers will have access to exclusive services and spacious areas where the highest hygiene standards and comfort are guaranteed and safety is a priority. 

“This new proposition will allow our guests to enjoy a moment of peace and relaxation in a modern, sophisticated environment that also pays homage to the rich history of Campinas.”

Work is currently underway on two additional domestic Ambaar Club lounges, at Salgado Filho Porto Alegre International Airport and Fortaleza-Pinto Martins International Airport in partnership with operator Fraport later this year.
