  • Food and drinks available (alcohol)
  • Showers,
  • Beds
  • Massages
  • Magazines and newspapers, and information about your flights or work, among others.

Most of them have a Privileged view of the airport; even if you don’t imagine a picture of the sea or the mountains, it is a view of the airport runway.

Who can access the VIP lounges?

Usually, to be able to access, you must have a pass provided by a service that has the membership of said rooms. It is not understood. Well, let’s explain it in another way.

  • If you bought tickets in first class or business class, depending on the airline and the alliance agreements and benefits it offers, it is very likely that you will have access to a VIP lounge.
  • If you are a frequent flyer and accumulated miles, you could have enough to upgrade; you could change your seat to an executive or first-class one and access the VIP lounges.

You also have Wi-Fi at the airport.

They are far from the boarding areas. This is relative, and generally, you tend to have alternatives depending on where you are. For example, there are at least one or two alternatives for each airport zone in large airports.

It is only for members. As already mentioned, for example, Priority Pass allows you to have guests, and others also allow it.

The service is expensive. Well, you would say no, if you consider all the amenities and services they offer you for that price, and it is loaded directly to your card, so you keep adding points or miles.

Not all are the same, and each has advantages and benefits depending on the area. Therefore, you are advised to download the app for your service to find out where they are located at the airport and what services are available.

When should you use the VIP lounges?

  • When you are a Business traveller and need a workspace that allows you to focus while charging your equipment or establishing a connection or a work meeting.
  • If you are in transit at an airport, leaving it will be more complicated than waiting inside. The comfort of the environment will allow you to wait calmly.
  • If your flight is at night, especially at dawn, it is an excellent alternative to be relaxed and calm while you wait because when you are tired and want to sleep, you are looking for comfort.
