Global Winner

The Sala VIP Internacional lounge at Quito International Airport claimed the top prize in the Global Airport Lounge of the Year Awards, which rates business facilities, comfort, service from lounge staff and food and drink.

Best Lounge in the World

The recently expanded lounge has panoramic views that look out across the city of Quito. It features an outdoor terrace, where passengers can sit and soak up the sun before their flights. The lounge is fitted out with distinguished locally sourced furnishings and the menu is designed by renowned local chef Andrés Miño and includes international and Ecuadorian cuisine. Guests can enjoy a variety of wines from the lounge’s private cellar while taking in the amazing views.

This modern and elegant lounge is open around the clock and features private working spaces, dedicated sleeping areas, a massage room, and showers for guests to refresh themselves before a long flight or during a layover.
