Airport Lounges

airport lounges

Airport lounges are no longer just for first and business class travellers. That's right, nowadays even if you are flying economy and have absolutely no airline loyalty, you can pay to enter a new style of pay-per-use lounges.

PAY-PER-USE LOUNGES are first class lounges that are open to ALL travellers regardless of airline flown - for a relatively small fee. If you have a layover, a cancelled flight or an early morning check-in or don't have time for breakfast before you leave for the airport, there is good value to be found in some of these lounges.

While all lounges are different, some features that you can expect are:

  • food (buffet-stle meals and/or snacks)
  • unlimited beverages (including alcohol in some lounges)
  • WiFi for laptop users and computer workstations for those who are not have a laptop
  • comfortable seating
  • showers (great for those of you who have just spent the night in the terminal the night before)
  • massages (usually for an extra fee)
  • sleep rooms (not available in all lounges)

In our airport guides, we include lounges that economy class travellers can use through the pay-per-use, day pass or membership method.

You can usually pay to use many of these pay-per-use lounges at the door. Entrance will be subject to availability. Keep in mind that some lounges are small (and busy prior to large flights), so if you want to guarantee a spot you should book in advance more than 24 hours in advance.
