Treats on offer in SkyTeam’s Santiago de Chile Lounge include:
Sips to savor
Chile is one of the world’s leading wine producers and SkyTeam is proud to offer a wide selection of local wines to enjoy in its Santiago Lounge. From the intense, ruby red Casa Silva Carmenere with aromas of black cherries and plums, to a chilled Reserva Emiliana Chardonnay with refreshing notes of citrus, customers can also toast their travels with a glass of Gemma or Azur fizz.
A wide selection of soft drinks, juices, tea and coffee are also available.
SkyTeam’s Lounge is the only one in Santiago International Airport to boast its very own empanada station, serving up fresh and authentic bites generously filled with spiced meat or cheese. Or why not sample some sopaipillas with pebre, a fried street food snack served with a tasty Chilean salsa.
A self-service buffet balances local flavors with international tastes. Current highlights include Carne a la Cerveza con Puré Rústico – a delicious slow-braised beef cooked in beer, or a meat-free Pastel de Choclo Vegetariano.
Time to celebrate
SkyTeam’s Santiago Lounge opened in March 2022 as international travel restarted from the country but before COVID restrictions were fully lifted. To showcase the many highlights the Lounge has to offer, SkyTeam and Global Lounge Network welcomed customers, airline and airport stakeholders to a delayed ‘official opening event’ to celebrate the Lounge’s success to-date.
