The SkyTeam lounge Santiago offers a perfect spot to relax before any international flight departing from Santiago, Chile. Located in the international terminal, departure hall E, the lounge is available to all departing customers. Most SkyTeam flights depart from terminal hall E making it the most convenient. For other flights this lounge is between a 10 and 20 minute walk to the other gates.
The Skyteam lounge features all the basic items needed in a lounge. There is comfortable seating, a self-service bar and hot and cold food. This wide selection of amenities will make any wait more enjoyable.
There is even a small area closed off in case there are First Class passengers in the lounge or VIPs.
The amenities include complimentary snacks and beverages, free Wi-Fi, and a range of comfortable seating areas. The seating areas come in different shapes and sizes, from individual chairs and tables to sofas and armchairs. There are even lounge chairs in case one needs to sleep. Yet, beware the three sleeping chairs are directly in front of the windows. During the day anyone trying to sleep in the Skyteam lounge will need an eye mask due the bright natural light.

At most locations, Skyteam lounges are open to Priority Pass card holders. I was able to access the Skyteam lounge without status while flying KLM between Santiago and Buenos Aires. I have no status, but do have an American Express Credit card with Priority Pass. Most Skyteam lounges, including the Skyteam lounge Vancouver accept Priority Pass.
