Without using an easy approach of traditional luxury items to create the project, Indio da Costa AUDT decided to utilise the heritage of Brazilian craftsmanship.

Cultural and representative of Brazil, The ln Flight Solutions = Star Alliance VIP Lounge is provides a sense of sophistication to the VIP traveller.
