DALLAS The oneworld Alliance, one of the most significant airline cooperative programs globally, has inaugurated its first branded European lounge at Amsterdam-Schiphol International Airport (AMS).

The lounge, located at the airside of the passenger terminal at Schiphol, will provide a comfortable layover or journey beginning to all passengers who contracted a premium service on any of the 14 oneworld routes flying in and out of the Netherlands’ capital.
