As part of a collaboration with AMBAAR, airport lounge and travel experiences specialist, Airport Dimensions, has opened its latest airside AMBAAR Club lounge at Bahia International Airport in Brazil. The opening follows the October opening of landside AMBAAR Club lounge.
“Our partnership with AMBAAR has continued to flourish since its inception and our fabulous new space at Salvador Bahia International Airport is a testament to this,” said Nancy Knipp, President Americas at Airport Dimensions.
The new space spans 538 sq.m. and has been designed to give passengers a last experience of Bahia (the Bay of All Saints) and the little town of Trancosco to its south which was once a small fishing village but currently draws tourists from all over the world to its glorious beaches.
An instantly recognised feature of the region are the sea-facing veranda houses of Trancosco. Their character is reflected at the airport where passengers await their flight on a veranda with a view across the airport apron instead of an ocean vista. Hammock seating is also used throughout the lounge, while natural dark woods and AMBAAR’s elegant deep-brown and weathered-steel colour pallet is used throughout, creating an ambiance of casual sophistication.
“As we continue to progress and expand further in this important South American market, we’re humbled to be trusted by so many of Brazil’s airports to deliver a high quality, localised experience for their travellers. Our goal is to create spaces that highlight local craftsmanship and decor for a truly authentic travel experience that resonates with local travellers as well as those coming to the region for the first time,” added Knipp.
Meanwhile, David Thompson, Commercial Director at Salvador Bahia International Airport said: “AMBAAR Club’s second lounge will undoubtedly play a major role in improving our passenger’s airport experience. Salvador Bahia Airport seeks daily to provide a memorable journey to everyone who passes by, and a VIP lounge space was the missing component. AMBAAR club is a sound strategic partner for us, with strong experience. ”
